The Pip Young Vines Le Bon Climat Chardonnay 2015

Pip was a border collie at the winery and an entire line-up of wines was named after her. Important attributes of “Pip” wines are a shorter barrel age with less new wood using fruit from younger vines. These wines are drinkable upon release. Medium straw color, delicate aromas of stone and tropical fruits. On the palate subtle fruit flavors of apple and pear, with a mineral character. Medium finish enjoyable, good value!

Borgo Buon Natale Tocai Friulano 2015

Winemaker/owner Jim Clendenen started a label to make small lots of artisan distinctive wines. Crafting wines with care and is concerned with producing a high quality product, despite how long production takes, some of these wines spend up to 5 years of barrel age. The Tocai Friulano, Italian white varietal, planted in 1994 on the Bien Nacido Vineyard. Aromas sweet stone fruits with floral notes, aged in 100% neutral oak. On the palate apple, zesty citrus & lemongrass, with vivid acidity. Savory mouthfeel, well balanced on medium finish, ending with a slight honey character. Very nice, good value!

"Bricco Buon Natale" Nebbiolo 2013

Unmistakably nebbiolo with the rose, tar, and raspberry fruit you’d expect but with some pretty finessed tannins. Hard not to love if you dig on nebbiolo but don’t always want to cook a steak in order to drink it — 18 days ago
