Monterey County Pinot Noir 2017

We had the 2017 Vintage on 9/26-27/22. The first night the tastes were more red fruit with red cherry, cranberry and pomegranate. The second night was darker with black cherry and even plum. There was red fruit and baking spices on the bouquet. A real good fruit forward medium bodied wine. Purchased at the tasting room in Carmel — 3 days ago


Colson Canyon Vineyard Syrah 2020

Delectable Wine

The 2020 Syrah Colson Canyon Vineyard is a dense, potent wine. The purity of the fruit is remarkable. Readers will have to be patient, as the 2020 is still incredibly primary. Inky red/purplish fruit, lavender, spice, menthol and rose petal open with a bit of coaxing. All this needs is time and a bit more polish. As always, the Colson Canyon Syrah is one of the most distinctive wines in Joey Tensley's range. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, August 2022)

Au Bon Climat

Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2020

Smells like fresh raspberries and wood, tastes like red licorice with a bit of citrus and just enough structure and tannin at the end to keep it light — 25 days ago

Williams Selyem

Vista Verde Vineyard Pinot Noir 2007

From 5 Liter (6.6 bottles of wine)...go big, or go home

Pop and pour. A brilliant medium ruby red color with some purple hues and clear/tawny colored rim. On the nose: Nice! Candied strawberry, vanilla nuts, sandlewood, cherries, forest floor. Taste: smooth, slightly creamy, nicely structured wine with cherry, earth, minerals, ruby red grapefruit, and a black pepper herb round finish. YUM!!! Sure, on the downside, but holds up least from a 5L.

Might be a single vineyard and misidentified- but this is a beautiful juice bomb. Figs and hibiscus. Love this, approachable and easy to share. — 9 hours ago

A Tribute to Grace Wines

Santa Barbara Highlands Grenache 2020

Delectable Wine

The 2020 Grenache Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard is airy, gracious and ethereal. Sweet dried cherry fruit, tobacco, leather, spice and rosewater give the 2020 its eccentric feel. The aromatics are especially vibrant owing to healthy amount of whole clusters. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, August 2022)
