Private Selection Aged in Bourbon Barrels Monterey County Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

A favorite in my house. The bourbon aftertaste is very subtle, but it gives off a slight smoky aftertaste. Very smooth. — 15 days ago

Santa Barbara County Syrah

Found this in New Mexico. If there is a central coast wine that represents the region this would be it. Of course this does not disqualify all the great Pinot produced in Santa Barbara. Truly a treat. — 3 months ago

Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2021

Simple Pinot! Not kick you in the teeth but not too fruity either! — 2 months ago


Kick-On Ranch Riesling 2017

Rich, honeyed, and intoxicating nose. Mott’s apple juice color. Broad on the palate with persimmon and canned peaches. Botrytis.
Air was kind. Have a few more ‘17, so will see how it develops.

Santa Barbara County Syrah 2017

Dark purple, opaque, rich dark fruits, ripe, good acid, long, lingering finish, shows just a bit of its 14.8% ABV, but that a quibble here, very fine!! — a month ago

Vista Verde Vineyard Pinot Noir 2020

Excellent Pinot to pair with our grilled salmon and salad. — 2 months ago


Colson Canyon Vineyard Syrah 2011

This was our 3L for the Christmas party - excellent Syrah, incredibly long tail to it, a little sparkly up front. Was a hit with the guests but I thought fell just short of the Adelaida last year — 3 months ago
