Central Coast Chardonnay

La Crema

Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2021

The straw colored wine offers a bountiful nose, full of floral notes, citrus, stone fruit and a decent helping of oak spice. The mouthfeel is full and creamy, yet with an acidity that is just short of racy. The fruity palate is draped with enough oak so that you know it’s there, but not so much that it is a bother. La Crema has a nice sipping Chardonnay here. — 21 days ago

Isosceles Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2018

Delectable Wine

The 2018 Isosceles is youthfully understated yet darkly alluring, with black cherry and spiced citrus nuances lifting from the glass. This washes across the palate with ease, cool-toned and with a pure mix of red and black fruits. It finishes with admirable length while maintaining an energetic feel. Blackberry hints slowly fade.

Belle Glos

Las Alturas Vineyard Pinot Noir 2020

‘Las Alturas' Spanish for 'the heights', a fitting name, this vineyard located on one of the highest grape-growing benches in the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. 4th gen Winemaker Joseph J. Wagner from family with farming & winemaking roots in Napa since 1906. Met Joe several times. Deep Ruby (darkest Pinot I have come across). Nice berry and floral spice aromas. Rich cherry/plum flavors with oak, spice and vanilla. Long finish, bold ending with sweet oak notes. Nice! A Fav! — 7 days ago

Porter-Bass Vineyard Chardonnay 2012

PnP. My initial impression was something wasn’t right. Not reductive or oxidative just couldn’t figure it out. Took about an hours time swirling and a heavy shake. Nice zesty zing that grew in weight to almost having a tropical note to it. Would have scored higher if not the weirdness upon opening. — 22 days ago

Au Bon Climat

Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2021

Deep pink color; pomegranate, raspberries and grape stems on the nose; high acidity; smooth tannins; tastes like sour cherries and cranberries with a long finish. Went really well with a creamy pasta sauce. — 12 days ago

Daou Vineyards

Pessimist Paso Robles Red Blend 2021

Delectable Wine

A wildly fresh bouquet of violets, lavender, cooling smoke and sugar-dusted blueberries wafts up as the 2021 Pessimist by DAOU unfolds in the glass. It's soft-textured yet energetic in style. Candied citrus hints accentuate cooling mineral tones and crisp wild berry fruits. The 2021 finishes with impressive length yet lightly structured. Violette Pastille and crunchy mineral tones slowly fade. (Eric Guido, Vinous, May 2023) — 10 days ago

Frank Family Vineyards

Carneros Chardonnay 2021

This FF Chardonnay is smooth and crisp with oaky overlays. Hints of pear and tropical fruit make this full bodied Chardonnay a good white wine to drink alone or with a full heavy meal. Not your typical buttery Chardonnay. — a month ago
