Elliott Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

An impossibly deep, dark, and mature expression of honest Pinot noir. Like sage advice from an older sibling. Neither candied nor ripe nor lean. Everything it it’s confident place.

Aromas of barely tart berries and oak, iodine, dark cocoa, and smoke. 70% whole cluster.

Costalina Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2012

This was a lovely intro into these wines for me. Vibrant and primal with drinkability turned up to 10. I look forward to many more to come - 2017 — 2 months ago

Totally agree @Fraser McKinley . Excited for my Sami-Odi wines to arrive here in the US in about 2 weeks!


I’ve passed on this several times. Guess I shouldn’t have! Next time I’m on it.

Hellenthal Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

Not as well balanced as 2012. This bottle needed a little more time in the bottle to soften it a bid — 2 days ago

Martinborough Chardonnay 2010

This is seriously good. Recommended to me by the chap at a supermarket in Christchurch. They use cork and this wine has aged beautifully. It’s something a burgundy fan will enjoy, though it reminds me more of like Ceritas. I wouldn’t mind trying this wine with even a touch more age. — 7 days ago

Porter-Bass Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

A special example of the delicacy that can be achieved on the Sonoma Coast when a solid picking choice is made. In the same breath, it is also an example for me of the constraints of the region. While broad and sprawling, there are really few sites suited for intriguing growing conditions for Pinot Noir, and even when done at the highest level, you can usually find higher quality at a lower price point from many known Pinot growing regions around the world. This is a qualitative peak for the AVA, and certainly worth considering. — 2 months ago
