Beautiful 25-year-old Cal Cab, shows some bricking around the edges, still shows firm structure (mountain Cab), more redfruit than black fruit, this should continue to evolve, but seems close to maturity, from one of my favorite Cal vintages!! — 4 days ago
Winery notes, Sun Chase Vineyard is planted on the west-facing hillside where the cool Petaluma Gap collides with Sonoma Mountain, this site overlooks a broad sweep of the county from the San Pablo Bay to north Santa Rosa. Our Chardonnay block with an east-west row aspect sits on a sun-drenched, rocky incline at 1000' where fruit yields are naturally limited with small clusters and aromatic fruit. Technical Notes: 76 clone, Whole-cluster pressing, 100% native yeast primary fermentation, 100% wild malolactic fermentation, 11 months in low toast, air-dry 3-year-old French oak, 25% new."

Ruby in color with a wide reddish rim and medium intensity.
Fruity nose with strawberries, raspberries, bing cherries, light oak, spices, light barnyard, light vegetables, earth and black pepper.
Medium-bodied with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with strawberries, raspberries, cherries, light oak, spices, chocolates, black pepper, light vegetables, herbs and earth.
Tangy finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is an easy drinking Pinot Noir from California. Showing mild complexity with a nice mouthfeel, and a little spicy on the finish.
Good right out of the bottle and shows more structure after 20 minutes of airtime.
A nice wine to pair with food or drink by the porch.
I gave it a light chill and had it with cheeses.
13.8% alcohol by volume.

This Geyserville is WAY too young to be this good! Incredibly pure nose of dark and rich berries. Ridge’s classic toasty coconut. Fresh soil, and a touch menthol. Definitely a ripe vintage in the fruit, but the wine is deep with its structure and clean, balance. — 3 days ago
Lovely Sauvignon Blanc that was part of a welcome gift for my wife & I during our recent staycation at the brand new Westin hotel here in our very own Texas Medical Center. Perfect wine to sip while on the terrace watching the sun go down. — 7 hours ago
My first bottle from Sonoma Mountain AVA, and could not be more happier that it’s from Kistler.
Sophisticated nose of Peach, orange peel, apple pie, honeysuckle, lemon, and crushed rocks. A bit nutty too. Rich yet soft palate. Just enough acidity. Precise and well balanced. Long elegant finish. — a day ago
