Sea Smoke

Ten Estate Vineyard Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2016

Hour decant. A beguiling medium ruby red color. On the nose: expressive notes of dark cherries, smokey oak, wet teabag, iron, cedar. Taste: luscious, smooth, creamy, good acidity wine with dark cherry, tea, minty, blueberry, and a peppery cedar semi dry long finish. YUM! — 20 days ago

Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2016

Big body Pinot, dark fruit blackberries, hints of cola, long on the palette, wonderful wine after a long day of work! — 6 days ago

Sea Smoke

Southing Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019

Concentrated raspberry and red plum aromas with glints and hints of red currant, cranberry and ripe red cherry. Tarragon strong with allspice afters. Very juicy center of this tootsie pop exhibits a slightly less sweet cherry, a touch of black pepper, cedar and cinnamon framing dense plum and both dried and ripe raspberry, subdued blackberry and a racy finish of cola and roobios pumping the brakes repeatedly on this well engineered rocket.

"Love You Bunches" Carbonic Sangiovese 2021

Trendy carbonic sweet dry red served chilled. Just odd, possibly in a good way, too much to decipher. I could see this working on a hot sunny day as a starter wine, seems fun, but that’s about it. More than one glass is too much. — 6 days ago

It’s perfect in the summer in Texas!


Yup, I can see it.

Rhys Vineyards

Alpine Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009

Scarlet color, almost opaque. Fruity, stemmy nose. Notes of dark fruit, bing cherries, moist soil, herbs and spice. Vibrant in the mouth. Silky sweet fruit but not over the top. Nice balance and structure. Really good. If i was tasting this blind I could see someone steering me towards a young Dujac guess. — 7 days ago

Southing Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2014

Very smooth, tannins have really mellowed. Fruit has faded a bit but still very good. Macerated black cherry, cola, and a touch of mint. I would drink soon. — 7 days ago

Ridge Vineyards

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2002

45 min decant(decent chunky/fine sediment). A remarkable medium garnet color with bricking. On the nose: beautiful perfumed notes burst from the glass with sour cherry, mint, dusty earth, currants, wet cedar, green bell pepper....could sniff all night! Taste: soft and round, smooth, elegant wine with raspberry, cedar, currants, musky earth, and a nice dark chocolate cherry finish. YUM! A wine that has hit its stride over the past few years with time to go. — 6 days ago
