Clone 115 Estate - Clonal Series Pinot Noir 2007

Can’t believe this is a 2007. From the Clonal Series that Greg Brewer put together when he was still at Melville, this wine is absolutely terrific. Beautiful notes of candied strawberries on the nose, this wine still has great balance, a pure, focused palate, and an elegant finish. An absolute testament to the ageability of pinots from the Central Coast, this one still has several more years of life left. Just terrific. — 12 days ago

Riverstone Arroyo Seco / Monterey Chardonnay 2017

Straw-hued. Aromas and flavors of butter, coconut, cream, oak, papaya, passionfruit, pear, and vanilla. Medium-full body and medium-high acidity. A finish of lemon and minerals on the palate. Very approachable and easy to drink; a solid example of a sub-$15 California Chardonnay. — 11 days ago

Private Selection Aged in Bourbon Barrels Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Surprisingly good. Actually has some complexity to it. A great start with what seems to be a cherry taste followed by some vanilla and finishes with the oak and bourbon. Fun. — 4 days ago
