Paul Lato

"Suerte" Solomon Hills Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

This was also relatively open but more complex than the Zotovich. It was my favorite Pinot of the evening. We also had the 2017 Pisoni but I failed to get a pic. The Pisoni was more complex like the Drum Canyon but I feel it will be better in the long run.
Paul Lato was in town and I had the chance to spend some time with him and taste through several of his new releases. His wines are great across the board.

Punta Exclamitiva Santa Maria Valley Nebbiolo 2008

Aromatics: orange peel, rose, spices and cherries. Wonderful and powerful Nebbiolo with a great finish. Tannins are well integrated. Saved half of the bottle for the next day (18 - 20 hrs later). Its amazing to see how the wine has improved and changed: on the nose more complex but still fresh! — 16 days ago

Paul Lato

The Contender Drum Canyon Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

The 2017 Drum Canyon is now called “C’est la Vie”. This was the least open of the Pinots.

"Le Souvenir" Sierra Madre Vineyard Chardonnay 2015

This one had a little more age on it and was drinking great.
