Silver Unoaked Santa Lucia Highlands Monterey Co. Chardonnay 2017

First, this wine was previously in a grey bottle, Why? Beginning with the 2017 vintage, the wine is in a clear bottle, which to me has a much better appeal, to see the wine! Fruit sourced from Monterey County, pale lemon-lime color with aromas of tropical and citrus fruits and slight biscuit notes. This wine is unoaked and fermented in stainless and concrete tanks. On the palate, crisp, with flavors of apple, melon and peach adding in some citrus zest. Balanced acidity, medium body and finish ending slightly on the creamy side. Drink young while its fresh! Tasting Sample! — 4 days ago

Au Bon Climat

Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2016

I enjoyed this wine a few days ago and it is truly delicious! Pomegranate..cranberries..rose petals..presents with a beautiful translucent color (remember the magenta crayola crayon with white wrapper)! Great balance! Definitely would seek this again! — 11 days ago

I liked this one. Medium buttery and lasts well once opened. — 3 days ago

Ranch 32

Estate Grown Monterey Chardonnay 2017

This is a chardonnay without surprises. The nose and the palate are rich and intense (I like it). An apple, a peach well balanced with a butter. And a citrus (bitter) finish. My first wine from Monterey (California) and not the last one - I have bought five various wines from this land. — 15 days ago

Had it with ribeye, potatoes, creamed spinach, and salad, it was delicious. Slightly light, but very good with various meats. — 12 days ago

Ranch 32

Estate Grown Monterey Merlot 2015

And another wine from Monterey. It’s near to perfection. A rich nose brings notes of blackberry, red currant and vanilla. So does the palate. It’s smooth and doesn’t need any spices, any citrus notes to be balanced. Smooth long finish is a reward itself. — 5 days ago
