Sonoma Coast, Sonoma County

Lioco

Charles Heintz Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

Straw with gold leaf glints. Compelling nose of acorn squash, zucchini blossom, cooling lemon zest, green apple, lime, drawn, clarified butter, corn flakes, tiny sprinkles of dried pineapple, and banana leaf aromas. Soft lemon pith and wet peel, green orchid stem, tangy, deconstructed lime from zest to oil and pith, lemon grass, and fresh cut lemon somehow echoing green apple tart bursts; lean and sexy with myriad edible flowers, lavender, squash blossom, nasturtiums, dandelion, and others, small and subtle. Overall a great Chardonnay with elegance and calculated beauty reminiscent of a Japanese garden, or a small, manicured French palatial jardin. .

Silver Eagle Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

Seriously Vin Diesel on open. Took a long time to blow off and open up. Apricot, lanolin, almond. Long, long, finish. Very dry Riesling like. β€” 2 days ago

Marcassin Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

This is so good...in a great spot now. Could get a little better in a year or two but I really enjoy these when the fruit is still prominent. β€” 2 days ago

Excellent bottle!

Occidental Wines

Freestone-Occidental Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2017

Medium Ruby with rich sweet red fruit aromas and herb spice notes on on this beauty from Steve Kistler. On the palate a rich full flavor of blackberry and cherry with cinnamon spice, oak and fine tannins. Crisp acidity, good balance, long ending with slight earthy character. Very Nice! Tasting well, enjoy over next decade! β€” 3 days ago

Pop and pour, this was ready to go. Great aromatics and a luxurious palate. Plush berry fruit drives to nice long finish. No need to wait on this one. β€” 4 days ago

This was excellent - 60 minute decant. Full throttle, massive wine. When your wife posts about the wine on instagram the next day, you know it was a good one! β€” 9 days ago

Fort Ross

Fort Ross Vineyard Pinotage 2014

Fabulously surprising! This wine is one of those warm robust bear humans who wraps you in a hug that doesn’t smother you, it frees you. It’s fresh. Oodles of dark berries and plums plus vanilla and a very herbal earthy thing and something like leather. So very very good. β€” 10 days ago

Donelan

Genevieve's Block Devoto Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

By coincidence I had two Donelan whites on near consecutive nights. The Chard is pretty punchy. Lemon and minerals. Some brioche. Tasty. Like a flat Bollinger. β€” 22 days ago

I alway serve corn nuts at my holiday party. It’s un-American not to do so.
