Solid Bordeaux style with the addition of plenty of Chilean sun, you can’t go wrong. Flavours are more Christmas spice than I would have expected with a rich dry fruit finish. Not in the Alma viva leagues but a good drop. In fairness I started this too cold after a spell in the fridge but it really started to evolve as it warmed up and also on the second day. If there was a 9.05 score option that would be right. — 15 days ago
Cannot stop drinking. I think I first tasted this 2016 or 17 and year after year it is my darling. About to heat some pizza to go with. Egads LOVE this carbonic Sangiovese. I want to share it with the world:just the whiffs of kirsch and bubble gum and light and SO perfect with a slight chill and I’m about to see how it goes with a pizza pie. Some LA nights are more fun than others. — 2 days ago

Pinot Noir, Old Vines .. Raised in Oak Fut. A rather classic wine. Close to a Burgundy. Alloys of primary aromas such as fresh red fruit, wonderfully combined with woody notes of Fut de Chêne, and some mineral notes. Well balanced, very well done. With a slightly longer finish, we would have a masterpiece. — 3 days ago
Winemaker's Notes: "Our debut vintage of Bien Nacido Vineyard Chardonnay truly embodies the cool coastal climate of the Santa Maria Valley. The nose offers enticing aromas of Meyer lemon, citrus zest, and subtle brioche notes. On the palate, vibrant citrus, layers of lemon and pear are rounded out by hazelnut. This delightfully poised Chardonnay has a lush viscous mouthfeel leading to a beautiful finish."
Right up my alley for $20.00.

Color of ruby with purple shades, quite clear. Nose of chocolate, tobacco leaves, leather, dried strawberry, strength of alcohol, and blackberry. Nose is quite powerful. Taste is dominated by concentrated dried strawberry, ripe juicy grapes, some brown sugar, hint of flowering note, spice, a bit peppery, and a bit zest. Zest shows up more in the aftertaste. Low tannins but full of flavors. — 9 days ago
💯th wine. Ayyy.
Slight cigar smoke, blueberry compote, straight up raspberry jam, rosy rosy bouquet.
This one just puts a smile on my face. It’s unpretentious, approachable, and just tastes damn good. Simple, drinkable, jam juice.
Cherries under the tongue, berries on top, slight leather in the mid.
1 liter of jammy farm wine please. — 9 days ago
A lovely nose of roasting green pepper.
This is a well made and well executed wine,
With medium bodied, dark, thick, lovely fruit a slurry of everything I am looking for right now.
Do not be alarmed! Mezcla translates as ‘Blend’ and what a well made blend this is.
