Santa Barbara County Chardonnay 2018

On with ABC. Five year old chard this time. Not as crisp as it’s younger counterparts and aging a little better than expected. There’s exuberant pineapple on the nose, palate, and finish, somehow it works… Not overpowering but refreshing, like pineapple shaved iced from childhood… High acidity, medium alcohol, slightly oaky and beginning to show sings of integration. Cheers. — 6 months ago

Talk about classy (or classic) Chardonnay, don’t matter really, this is both! This is in its own league when it comes to Chard. It’s crisp yet round, bright yet balanced, and acidic yet unctuous. Not old world but not typical Cali Chard. Must try this ABC. Cheers. — 4 months ago

The single vineyard ABC chards and pinots have always been instructive and must-try. R.I.P. Jim.

Wise words.

Nielson Vineyard Pinot Noir 2008

Light garnet with a clear rim and a nose of tabacco/leather with spices like clove & cinnamon (not much fruit nose). Smooth in the mouth with mild acidity & low tannins. Dark plum, blackberry with same flavors as on the nose (a bit spicy on the tongue). Not your average Pinot but quite nice and will pair well with lots of foods. — 5 months ago

La Bauge Au-Dessus Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir 2015

Again with some ABC. Tasting some older single vineyard Pinot… Nose is great, amazing actually. The wine oxidizes very quickly and more challenging to enjoy when compared to it’s younger siblings. Loved the wine though. — 6 months ago
