Fine Disregard Wine Company

Pato Vineyard Mataro 2017

A beautiful light cherry red color in the glass. The nose blooms with floral notes, dried cherries, and soft herbs. This is one of those wines that you would file under easy drinking or fun, but that’s no reason to not take it seriously. After getting plenty of air, it’s so inviting and gracious. Perfectly sweet with just the right amount of fruit, it always keeps an even keel. Layered fruit and spices on the mid palate. Raspberry and cherry are dominant on the palate, along with oak, herbs, and spice. A touch of leather and violets round things off. Tiny production but a truly outstanding wine. If you like standard California Mourvèdre then you may be looking in the wrong place. This is so far above the norm. — 16 days ago

Trout Gulch Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

A bit disjointed at this early stage. Not my favorite of the Ceritas pinots, but solid. Very light and full of red cherries. — 2 days ago

Peter Martin Ray Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

I had this tucked away in the cellar and finally pulled it out. What a pleasant surprise. Clean, bright red fruits with plenty of acidity balanced by a few earthy, tertiary notes. Wonderfully enjoyable. I’m glad I have one more bottle! — a month ago
