Sta. Rita Hills, Central Coast

La Rinconada Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Needs way more time - thin and uninteresting the first day, second day a bit more weight and complexity. Bright red fruits and a pleasant sweetness. — 10 days ago

Sandhi Wines

Sanford & Benedict Chardonnay 2013

Restrained Cali Chard drinking beautifully. Medium plus weight and acidity with only 12% alc. Air is kind. Loads of citrus with tangerine peel, lemon curd, and lemon zest. Smooth with great texture and a long finish of salted almonds. Just wish it was $40 instead of $60. — 9 days ago

White Hill Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2016

Excited to have acquired this very solid Chardonnay, seemingly hard to find here in the NW. Truth be told, Joe actually present for this one. — 22 days ago

Lutum

Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Bright red color. Raspberries on the nose. Smooth finish that lingers. Hint of cola. Well balanced and really nice acidity. This reminds me of an Oregon Pinot. Very enjoyable right now. — 23 days ago

Sea Smoke

Sea Spray Blanc de Noirs Sta. Rita Hills Sparkling Pinot Noir 2014

Make sure you get it really cold. These bottles have a reputation to foam over even with care. — 6 days ago

Tyler

Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Although it was late in the evening (or at least it felt that way- it was actually about 8pm) this wine impressed. Everything that I love about Santa Rita Hills (earth, ocean and smoke) elegantly wrapped in some very restrained oak. Classy. — 9 days ago

Brewer-Clifton

Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2015

Big and beautiful. I’m not usually a fan of California wines, but this is something special. Must be mostly steel or neutral oak—just enough to balance everything else. — 4 days ago

Clos Pepe Estate

Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2012

Very light color with nice plum and dark fruits on the nose. Nice spicy dark fruits on taste. — 8 days ago
