Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir 2016

Another vintage of this and still full bodied with distinct Pinot flavours but backed up by sweet fruit and spice. Looks more like Cabernet in the glass, very nice. May not suit the California Pinot purists but I could see this being a good banker for a Christmas or thanksgiving lunch. — 18 days ago

Clark & Telephone Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Immediate hit of intense deep fruit, mostly blueberry, stops just short of the point of absurdity. Herbaceous notes, tobacco and green pepper back up the finish. Very silky with no tannins at all. Super drinkable right now. — 16 days ago

One of the best value Left-Bank Bordeaux’s out there. You just have to lay down for 10–15 years. It’s not a sexy Chateau but, they do really good work...smartly priced.

Steak wine tonight with friends.

Notes later if I can.

If you are storing them in a climate controlled environment, 10-20 years from birth depending on how you enjoy them. If not, 5-8 years. They just don’t round out as beautifully or are as elegant, integrated and floral without that kind of storage & time. IMHO. Some people drink there wines young regularly and that’s what becomes their palate or wheelhouse. I’ve fell in love with well softened, elegant, integrated with more floral components. Any well made producers of Cabernet from Napa would recommend minimum of 8-10 years in bottle. Well made Bordeaux producers would say 10-50 years depending on the producer, specific region & vintage. Hope this helps. Cheers! 🍷
