I would like to do a vertical of all the producers that make wine from this vineyard. It would be interesting to see how diverse the vineyard is, as well as the wine making and oak usage.


Marena Chardonnay 2015

Good balance of fruit and minerality. Lemon, wet stones and a hint of grapefruit. — 5 months ago

Peter Martin Ray Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

Richer and more tropical notes than other Ceritas Chardonnays. Enjoyed it now, but suspect it would be better with another 2-3 years of age. — 6 days ago

Oh my. First vintage. Really really really glad I have one more bottle of that to enjoy. My kind of Cabernet right there. — 3 months ago

Costalina Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2017

Definitely on the lighter side. Nice entry level Pinot but this one didn’t have the overwhelming cherry profile like the ‘16. — 5 months ago

Occidental Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2017

These made for a fantastic pair; both, I think from Steve Kistler’s vineyard. The Ceritas was my favourite with lovely freshness, purity and vibrancy. The SWK was also cool, albeit in a deeper, darker and denser guise - 2017 — 7 months ago

These Ceritas wines are excellent. Their Charles Heintz vineyard chardonnay is a favorite of mine.

I’m with you @Shay A - every Ceritas I’ve crossed paths with has been delicious!


Trout Gulch Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

Powerful lemon curd and Granny Smith tartness streaming’s from the glass. Wonderful weight and almost chewy texture... minerality and acidity shore up the finish... gets better as it warms. — a month ago

Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay 2014

Candied (but barely) lemon is a fair tasting note. It still has that puckering acidity that is so distinctive

Drank side by side w the Ceritas TG ‘14. Nose was quite similar on both but they diverge on the palate
