Vine Hill Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

🎄 Advent Halfy Calendar Day 09 🎄

🎅 Santa says “Opulent, Exotic & Spicy are also words Mrs Claus uses to describe me 😊 it is that Erotic 🤔 ”

📝 I say a wine I’ve been dying to try for donkeys years & it sure delivers but it’s darn expensive Ho bloody Ho - at least it’s not over syrupy like many from here 😉

Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2006

Plumy in a good way a ton of fruit. Almost exotic. All spice. Really good. Plenty of acid did beat all the other Pinot’s of the night! Really black dark cherries. The next day prune plums and still awesome 👏 and amazing wine! — 25 days ago

Les Noisetiers Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

One of my favorite California Chardonnays. More of a French style, the oak and butter is more subdued. — 18 days ago


Durell Vineyard Sonoma Valley Chardonnay 2013

Every time I think about not ordering any Cali Chard, I pull one of these from my cellar and change my mind. The Durrell ‘13 is ready to go... still some fruit and acidity, but why wait? This is truly a holiday season (cool weather) white wine, with baking spices, tropical fruit, limestone, high viscosity and 14.1% ABV. Should pair perfectly with a rich chicken dish or winter soup. Unctuous and rich, yet balanced. — 9 days ago

Too young but very good in present stage. Could probably get better. More complex and brooding, like a talented moody teenager. Great texture. — 18 days ago

SWK Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

Other than Wayfarer Pinot noir, Occidental is hands down the Rolls Royce of Pinots. Full flavor, robust, and very exotic. It’s a perfect gift to give for someone who loves their Pinot noirs. Get them while you can because wine shops do not sell these by the case. At an average of $65-$70 per bottle, it’s a premium but their quality is unique and hard to find. You won’t be disappointed. — 8 days ago
