Ventana Vineyards Chardonnay 1990

Held up remarkably well. Golden. Tasty.
Winemaker's Comments: Crisp and fruity with hints of vanilla and pineapple in the bouquet. Balanced fruit and acid. Complex and mouthfilling. Fermented and aged in 60 gal. French oak barrels. 810 cases produced. Bottled August 1991.

Ahlgren Vineyard

Ventana Vineyards Syrah 2001

Quite powerful fruit and acidity. Aged well, lots of sediment required decanting. Some funk on the first night, gone on the second. Good, but not as good as the Paso Robles Syrah of previous years.

Winemaker's comment: Deep & dark. Classic Syrah bouquet w/ bright, spicy flavors. Rich & complex, fine finish. Unfined/unfiltered. Bottled May 2004.

At Ventana Big Sur. Big oaky buttery. Kelly and I both loved it. Paired very well with our oyster mushrooms — a year ago


Central Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 1979

Interesting one from the 70s... seemed over the hill at first, but with some air it came back to life. Would have been great if it had a bit more fruit left.
Winemaker's Comment: 79% Cabernet Sauv. from Tepusquet; 17% Petite Sirah and 4% Merlot from Ventana Vineyards. Full, rich flavors & color. Unfined. Bottled March 1982. D.D.A.

Joseph Phelps Vineyards

Le Mistral Red Rhone Blend 1999

David T

Out of Magnum. Rich black plum, cooked rhubarb, ripe black cherries, pomegranate, raspberries, hint of sage, dry tumbleweed, tea, dusty limestone, soft spices, perfect acidity and a full minute finish. Perfect pairing is pulled pork sandwiches top with cole slaw. Sadly, the Phelps brother who once championed this wine doesn't anymore. The vineyards are owned by a Ventana company and it's not the same wine. — 5 years ago
