Sundawg Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Fragrance of cherry and some spice. With air, both appear on the palate. Quite different and more mature than most Saintsbury releases but quite pleasing. April 2021. — 18 days ago

Pratt Vineyard Pinot Noir

If Saintsbury was alive, he'd add it to his notes from the cellar. Definitely a California speaking Pinot basking in the Pacific sun... — 3 months ago

B Kosuge Wines

Pinot Noir 2017

Whadda wine! 🇺🇸🍷

Byron Kosuge established himself as a California legend at Saintsbury in Carneros from 1985 to 2001. Saintsbury’s cool climate Pinots swam upstream from the general thrust of American wine at the time, emphasizing a softer touch.

His own label, B. Kosuge Wines, takes it a step further to the West Sonoma Coast at the edge of the continent. 🌊🌊🌊☁️☁️☁️ He has dedicated the rest of his career to doing his part to find the path forward for California wine in a changing world.

Byron felt that 2015 and 2016 were the finest vintages he’d ever produced. So when 2017 rolled around as more of a B+ vintage, he declassified all of his elite Hirsch Vineyard fruit for use in the Sonoma Coast wine. Many winemakers would have used the opportunity to crank up the price, but Byron kept it level. Here at Le Dû’s Wines in Manhattan, it’s $32.99 on the shelf.

Repeat: 🚨🚨THIS IS OVER 50% HIRSCH VINEYARD PINOT NOIR AND YOU CAN GET IT FOR UNDER $35🚨🚨.

Byron is an insightful guy with a lot of thoughts about where California wine is and where it’s going. If you ever get a chance to visit with him, jump on it!

Sangiacomo Green Acres Carneros Chardonnay 2018

2018 vintage I’m March 2021 13.5% alcohol. Tight with a firm beam of acid crispness at first when cold. As it opened over an hour it gained roundness and some tropical fruit as well as good body. This will be a Really Good Wine in 2-3 years. Good value too. — a month ago
