Estate Chardonnay 2013

Medium gold color. Massive honey on the nose and throughout the palate. Refined with medium plus depth. A little one dimensional and probably slightly past prime drinking age, but I really enjoyed it. — 16 days ago

Demostene Ranch Zinfandel Carignane 2016

Although this is 50/50, the Carignane force is strong in this one. That classic, earthy sour plummy fruit takes the lead, with a noticeable note of American oak. In the mouth, it’s got the buoyancy of the Carignane and terrific fruit density. Dry, nice acid balance, little tannin. I like this a lot. — 5 days ago

Mendocino Ridge Pinot Noir 2020

This is the Rose. Fun. Great first installment. Low alc. with a slight sweetness to it. What could be better on a hot summer day (they hit SF from time to time). — 10 days ago

Goodfellow Family Cellars

Whistling Ridge Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

Ripe pear, white flower, citrus zest, ocean salinity, damp slate. Broad texture and gorgeous acid gives a backbone that has plenty of life left. Fantastic food wine. Marcus Goodfellow delivers yet again...per usual. — 10 days ago

Good to know, we still have some '02, this was the first year we starting buying this with cellaring intentions.

@Severn Goodwin it’s got legs to hold up another 3-5 years, perhaps more. Still pretty tight with mostly secondary flavors amid somewhat ripe tannins. I suggest an hour decant (also, this wine is neither filtered nor fined.) Lots of sediment. Cheers!

@Eric Glad to have BF fans connecting, our last was an '04 (not posted) with likely equally heavy sediment, and it was doing great. We first hit BF in '00 or '01 and were completely smitten.

Mindego Ridge

Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir 2018
