Alesia

Fairview Ranch Vineyard Syrah 2005

We were so fortunate to have Jeff Brinkman, Rhys’ winemaker for the past 15 years, join our tasting of nine Rhys Syrahs from 2003 - 2013. I liked this Alesia, Fairview Ranch, a year after the “bret incident’, I liked the “good” bret on this one. — 4 days ago

Black Kite Cellars

Soberanes Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Black Kite has been a consistent Pinot producer over the years. They really hit it out of the park with this SLH beauty. Nice strawberry, with that caramel and vanilla streak to balance the tart fruit. Yum. — 17 days ago

Tart plum, underripe peach, cooked strawberry, quince, mandarin orange, lemon, hints of white pepper, with a prominent mineral backbone. So much going on with a wide flavor profile. Medium minus alcohol and high acid. — 2 days ago

Miura

Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2017

A new producer for me, and while it was good, I wasn’t impressed. Lots of other pinots I prefer at or below this price point. — 8 days ago

Morgan

Highland Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay 2015

Great, I think. Some tastes were like a high end white burgundy, and others were a unique Napa Chard. Medium gold color. Caramel and butter, with plenty of sweetness at times. Thick with a medium plus finish. Rounding up from 93.5 based on past nice bottles. — 24 days ago
