Light gold in color with a green hue.
Pronounced nose of citrus, lemons, oak, vanilla, spices, grapefruits, pears and red apples.
Full bodied, buttery and smooth, with medium acidity and nice legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with red apples, citrus, lemons, grapefruits, sea salt, white pepper, oak, vanilla and spices.
Medium plus on the finish with limes and almonds.
This is a very enjoyable California Chardonnay. Shows a very typical taste profile, with an above average quality and flavor.
Good by itself as a sipping wine, as it is not bitter. Nice length on the finish, which I liked.
This is a nice surprise. Enjoyable and gracious mouthfeel with nice complexity.
Better when not very cold to show the complexity.
I paired it with cheeses and nuts.
13.9% alcohol by volume.

Jamie Slone Wines is a small producer of some fine wines from Santa Barbara County. P1 (a racing term), is a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and 34% Syrah, aged for 30 months in new and neutral French Oak. Aromas of lively fruit, spice and cedar notes. On the palate fresh fruit flavors cherry and currants with some leather and cacao spice with underlying gentle sweetness. Well balanced, soft tannins, lingering ending with great mouthfeel. A winner, one of my Fav’s! Tasting Sample. — 8 days ago
Really a 9.3 but I’m curious to see how it improves - might develop into something even more special. As it is, this was a great wine; one part smoky venison, two parts stewed strawberries. Lots of fruit for an austere vintage. — 3 days ago
Crunchy, vibrant Pinot. 12.55% ABV (woot!) Unfined, unfiltered. This is Brian’s style of wine, a style I’m happy to drink. But, my resident non-credentialed wine drinker said: “It looks like a Pinot, but it doesn’t taste like a Pinot....”
There’s some candied cherry fruit for sure, but grippy minerals and green veggies make this a different animal. Could easily be confused with cru Beaujolais. — 15 days ago
Ruby colored liquid in my glass. Hints of cherry pie on the nose. Flavors of tart cherries, red plums and baking spices. Beautiful acidity. A very balanced wine. This is my last regular bottle of CP wine. I do have a VS Pinot which I will sit on for a while. Glad other wineries are making really good wines from the Clos Pepe vineyard. — 19 days ago
Golden with aromas of fruit and toasty creamy oak spice. On the palate pear, apple and honey with hints of peach and citrus notes and nice round oaky tones, showing its age. Medium+ finish ending with a sweet creamy mineral edge. Don’t wait any longer on this one! — 20 days ago
Complex, creamy, aromatic Central Coast Chardonnay—quite delicious. Apples, pears, nutmeg and minerals. Better than most Chardonnays from Napa that I’ve had, and much more affordable. Enjoyed the 2016 vintage with Lobster Thermidor from Dear John’s in Culver City. — 2 days ago
