Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2013

Wine of the weekend for me: Sandhi 2013 Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir. It’s got a coastal Cali quality that I call “where the ocean meets the land” — like a combo of pine and sea spray. — 4 days ago

Mt. Carmel Pinot Noir

This is a wine I have been interested in trying for quite some time. Soft, supple, juicy red fruit flavors float across your tongue while floral and earthy aromas watt from the glass. A real treat. — a month ago

Brut Nature Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

Fresh, light red fruit notes. Subtle hint of cotton candy, but in a totally attractive sense. Wonderful value from a remarkable vintner. — 5 months ago

Anika Bien Nacido Vineyard Syrah 2016

Outstanding Syrah from Bien Nacido Vineyard in Santa Maria Valley, a site Rajat Parr has been exploring for a number of years (some, in collaboration with Piedrasassi) to craft a California Syrah to match the northern Rhône best ones (if you've read Rajat Parr's Atlas of Taste, you know he's obsessed with Thierry Allemand). Lively, balanced, delicious. — 15 days ago

Domaine de la Côte

La Côte Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

2017 Memorious Pinot Noir ⁣
2017 Bloom’s Field Pinot Noir ⁣
2017 La Côte Pinot Noir ⁣
2017 Sous le Chene Pinot Noir ⁣
2014 Sandhi Blanc de Blancs ⁣

All Pinot Noirs were delicious. Memorious tasted some spice with black pepper. Bloom’s Field showed darker fruits. La Côte was fuller in body and riper on aromas. Sous le Chene had the best concentration and the most complex profile with hint of wild bouquet. The Blanc de Blancs was refreshing with a tad of funkiness, possibly from VA and a little oxidation, 3 years on lees, all adding to the character.⁣

What’s especial about Sous le Chene is that it’s sourced from this 10 rows of vines literally right next to La Côte but you can somehow really taste the difference between the two. ⁣
