Colluvial Wine

F.R.F Tinaquaic Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2016

Deep ruby/purple color. Aromas of tomato leaf, blue and black berry, tobacco with a touch of green bell pepper. Pallet is rich and full of dark fruit, cocoa, wood, roasted poblano pepper and a touch of vanilla. A bit of tobacco, minerals and earth on the very long finish. Extremely complex and multi dimensional wine. Thank you so much, Kasey! — 6 days ago

Hildegard Estate Bottled Santa Maria Valley White Blend 2018

Delicious and refreshing with arctic thyme, lavender and mineral on the nose. Salmiac, pear and vanilla on the palate. Quite original, never tried anything similar. Well balanced though. — 10 days ago

Nuits-Blanches au Bouge Santa Maria Valley Estate Bottled Chardonnay 2001

Incredible, my first aged CA #chardonnay #santamariavalley from a famous producer. A magnum aged 21 years onsite at the winery proved spectacular. Golden yellow in glass. Nose explodes with honeysuckle, marizpan, quince paste, preserved lemon. Opulent texture on palate, honeyed apple & citrus, vibrant acidity and wet stone finish. — 11 days ago

Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Really great Pinot noir. The flavour - peppery on the front of your tongue - was delicious. As ever, too light for me but surprisingly enjoyed. We had corovin of two glasses at the grove! — 8 days ago

Clark & Telephone Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

Winemaker Joseph J. Wagner is a 4th generation winemaker with winemaking roots in the Napa Valley since 1906. Met Joe several times. Deep Ruby with red berry fruit aromas, tar and sweet spice notes. The palate shows ripe raspberry and jammy cherry with sweet vanilla oak, cacao and pepper spice notes. Soft tannins and bright acidity, well balanced, with mineral tones on a long finish ending with toasty spice! Nice! — 21 days ago

Monument Pinot Noir

Damn, this is one hell of a blackberry punch! The nose explodes forth with lush, ripe red fruits, velvet, leather, coca and delicate wood notes. The palate has some pretty prominent notes of vanilla, with silky tannins, dark chocolate and explosive strawberry, blackberry and black cherry. Really delicious. — a month ago
