Garys' Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Very enjoyable with dark fruits and some earthiness. Nice long and smooth finish. Only issue was color which showed some brownish tint, so thinking drink up. — a month ago

Garys' Vineyard Pinot Noir 2011

Subtle aromatics, tertiary color changes. Very nice for a 2011, although past it’s prime. Cork almost totally crumbled with the use of a corkscrew. — 2 months ago

Caraccioli Cellars

Santa Lucia Highlands Brut Rosé Blend 2017

Grower bubbles from the Santa Lucia Highlands. Still can’t compete with top tier grower champagne (we don’t get that phenolic maturity at low brix etc) BUT excellent none the less. The rosé from Caraccioli especially stands out. The 1-2% SLH Pinot brings an element of coastal Cali terroir to this wine (the tiniest hint of that strawberry, herbal quality) which blends so perfectly with the lemon juice and marzipan/vanilla/lanolin leesy quality. Fine persistent mousse. One of the best examples of domestic sparkling I’ve had. — 3 months ago

Las Alturas Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2021

‘Las Alturas' Spanish for 'the heights', a fitting name, this vineyard located on one of the highest grape-growing benches in the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. 4th gen Winemaker Joseph J. Wagner from family with farming & winemaking roots in Napa since 1906. Met Joe several times. Deep Ruby (darkest Pinot I have come across). Nice berry and floral spice aromas. Rich cherry/plum flavors with oak, spice and vanilla. Long finish, bold ending with sweet oak notes. Very Nice! A Fav! — 2 months ago

Rosella's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

May be my favorite wine of 2023. Long nose of cherry and a long finish is baking slices. Still some acidity…. great bottle of wine. — 2 months ago
