Central Coast Chardonnay

Sandhi Wines

Sanford & Benedict Chardonnay 2017

From a wine dinner with Sashi Moorman himself! Great flavor and intensity of new world fruit, but with the restraint and grace of the old world. The minerality and tension really keeps you engaged. — 8 days ago

Reserve Zanetta Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

Golden hue. Aromas and flavors of apple, butter, coconut, cream, lime, mango, melon, oak, pear, and vanilla. Full-bodied with medium-high acidity. Multi-faceted on the palate with a long, engrossing finish. Exemplary California chardonnay. — 10 days ago

Hartford Court

Far Coast Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

From a vineyard wayyyyy out there on the coast this is about as cold and fogged in of a climate as you’re gonna get. That brings loads of stonefruit and citrus to this wine which is balanced by a creamy texture which sails on into the finish. Awesome example of chardonnay from the “true” Sonoma Coast. — 9 hours ago

Silver Unoaked Monterey County Chardonnay 2017

I do like an unoaked Chardonnay. Though zesty it has traces of minerals, not too much fruit, went well with salmon and scallops. Pretty nice Charles Wagner wine. — 7 days ago

Artiste Winery

Contemplation Pinot Noir Blend

Artiste Winery Countemplation Non Vintage, Santa Barbara County, California

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim. A very pretty color.

Fruity nose with bing cherries, blueberries, plums, wood, vanilla, red candy, spices and black pepper.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with cherries, strawberries, currants, barnyard, light vegetables, oak, light vanilla, spices, dark chocolates and peppercorn.

Spicy finish with soft tannins and tangy citrus fruit.

This is a very interesting Pinot Noir blend from Santa Barbara County. A nice surprise, a Pinot Noir with a twist. Smells like a Pinot Noir from California, tastes like a fruity Pinot Noir with a touch of Syrah. Spicy, unique and interesting.

Good by itself as a sipping wine or with food. A good wine to sip on with friends and talk about.

Although very enjoyable now, it should get even better in 3 to 5 years. (This Non-Vintage was bottled in 2019).

Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Interesting and engaging.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 70% Pinot Noir, 24% Syrah and 6% Chardonnay.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Senses Wines

Tenth Stop Chardonnay 2015

TRB Burgundy collection. 15’ Senses Tenth Stop Chardonnay. Nice richness to this, not in a bad/ overdone way. Orchard fruit, mint, white flowers & creamy- honey are framed by French oak. Extremely inviting Chardonnay is a crowd- pleaser for sure. Drinking now. — a day ago
