Winemaker poured me this treat at the Grand Opening of Pebble Beach Food & Wine. Out of mag and delicious. Still shinning after 35 years plus. — 8 days ago

Jensen Vineyard Pinot Noir 1989

Delectable Wine
9.3

The 1989 Pinot Noir Jensen Vineyard from Calera is a real surprise. I am inexperienced with respect to mature Californian Pinot Noir, and Josh Jensen’s wine was a revelation. Candied red fruit commingles with blood orange and Kirsch, unmistakably not from Burgundy because it is too rich, but it is certainly not over-ripe. The palate is overly sweet and Californian on the entry. Still, there is structure behind this Pinot extant after more than three decades, with quite plush raspberry fruit on the quintessentially Californian finish. It's just a lovely wine that is, once again, perfect to drink now. (Neal Martin, Vinous, April 2024)

Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay 2015

A fantastic bottling that is rich, bright and delicate at the same time. Fully integrated with lovely smoky and mineral notes. Long elegant finish.
The winery note states full development by 2022. Agreed but should have staying power for another 4-5 years.

Texture Like Sun Sector Adelaide Hills Red Blend

Actually Sector Red 8, not Adelaide Hills. DELICIOUS. Light but full flavor. Let aerate, swirl around. Serve chilled. Good on day 2. — 4 days ago

Polish Hill Clare Valley Riesling 2023

Infanticide. This changed a lot in the glass. A lot going on here, but we didn’t do it justice by drinking it so young. Green apple, coconut, lychee. — a month ago

Wolff Vineyard Chardonnay 2020

Really solid california chardonnay that gives you all that you want in this varietal from that region. Light golden color. Has a toasty and slightly oxidized nose that gives way to tropical fruits. Mostly pineapple. Great structure, strong acidity but not biting. More tropical flavors inside with vanilla, some lemon butter, and a nice oak finish. — a month ago
