"Isabelle" California Pinot Noir 2014


Au Bon Climat 2014 Isabelle Pinot Noir
This is best-barrel bottling by Jim Clendenen, named after his daughter.
Medium body. Ripe cherry, very ripe raspberry, black licorice, sweet spices. Mouth-cleansing acidity. Drinking for another 5 + years. Drinking like it’s a premier league PN😉

@Dawn E. I’m biased towards the Wines. Impossible to beat for the money. Especially if you’re a club member. They consistently get in the mid 90s. Club members get these wines $30/$40+a bottle . So worth checking out the HUGE collection. Cheers!

Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2017

Presents with a beautiful translucent ruby red with a clear rim. Let this wine open up and receive delicious cranberries..pomegranate..bubble gum..cola and gentle baking spices.
I am sure this wine could cellar longer..although enjoyable at this stage!

Le Bon Climat Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir 2013

13’Clendenen Family Vineyards. Le Bon Climat Pinot Noir.
Color - Pale Ruby
Palate- Fresh picked strawberries, a splash of spices & tobacco. Perfect amount of acidity, tannins are soft & approachable. Certainly one of the best PN’s I’ve had out of California in the last 12 mo. 
Sensational bottle of wine. Recommended highly.

Absolutely agree.

A hallmark of the Clendenen-made wines. Rarely electric guitar. Almost exclusively violin. You must sift through and analyze vs being punched in the face. Waay too many people apparently are lost on subtlety and prefer being punched in the face. Pity.
