Loads of red fruit but still tight even after a 3 hour decant. Still paired well with a burger!Would give it a few more years. — 2 months ago

Estate Grown Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay 2015

A blend of all estate vineyards.
Most malo of all tasted.
Vanilla, lemon meringue, clove and a wee allspice on the closing notes.
Represents a very well crafted, expertly crafted wine but it has a bit of a generic character of 'Cool climate California Chardonnay'.
The ticket price of $95 retail is an expensive admission for this show.

Thomas Road Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

Reminded me more of a Willamette Pinot than a traditional Russian River Valley. More earth tones then berry, lighter color but still a high alcohol level. Definitely having again. — 3 months ago

Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2013

in line with the other reviews. An exceptional wine maker, doing everything from planting to pruning to winemaking. Very small production. Opened the bottle about an hour before consuming every last drop. Quite delicious. An exceptional example of Oregon Pinot Noir.  — 2 months ago

Estate Grown Calistoga Merlot 2015

Popped and poured. This was a selection from a friend’s cellar and since I just enjoyed a couple bottles of Merlot the other night, I figure we might as well check in on this 2015 from Kenefick Ranch. Popped and poured, the wine pours a deep purple color with an opaque core; medium+ viscosity with moderate staining of the tears. On the nose, this smells like a big wine. Developing, with powerful notes of plums, blackberries, purple flowers, vanilla and baking spices. On the palate, this tastes like a big wine. Dry with medium tannins and medium(+?) acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is medium+. This is a high alcohol, high octane version of Merlot. Drink now and through 2030. — 2 months ago

Cresta Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Excellent masculine Pinot Noir that reminds me of a Gevrey-Chambertin. And it is reasonably priced. A great value at $31. This is a Pinot Noir for steak or lamb, not pizza, but I drank it with pizza and still enjoyed it. — 3 months ago
