Sativa Mendocino Carignan 2016

Blood-ruby, undiluted tenor from rim to rim. Blackberry-cran with a smoky coat, violets, raspberry reduction, wild nettle, suede, rose petal, dried cherry, applewood, and gingerly ginger, spare cedar, finest snuff, cherry pit and damp clove spiced nose. All with a slight memory of campfire. Black plum, cedar, violet, dried, sour cherry, dark leather, peppercorn, dried cranberry and red currant, cinnamon apple, fine, grippy tannins that integrate into the whole with a pleasing sense of herbs and bitters, sage and lavender. Did not expect this complexity from carignan, and floral notes that evoke like Nebbiolo. Class. .

Indica (Red) Mendocino County Carignan 2013

Should I go for the easy pun? Stemmy, brah. Violet, brambly blackberries, black peppercorn, craisins crushed with granite. Nerdy. #lioco #carignan — 5 years ago

Charles Heintz Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

Straw with gold leaf glints. Compelling nose of acorn squash, zucchini blossom, cooling lemon zest, green apple, lime, drawn, clarified butter, corn flakes, tiny sprinkles of dried pineapple, and banana leaf aromas. Soft lemon pith and wet peel, green orchid stem, tangy, deconstructed lime from zest to oil and pith, lemon grass, and fresh cut lemon somehow echoing green apple tart bursts; lean and sexy with myriad edible flowers, lavender, squash blossom, nasturtiums, dandelion, and others, small and subtle. Overall a great Chardonnay with elegance and calculated beauty reminiscent of a Japanese garden, or a small, manicured French palatial jardin. .

#LIOCO set out to prove #TERROIR exists in California. And that CAL could produce awesome food friendly wines. This #sativa proves the theory in spades! David Phinney should take a seminar from John Raytek

La Marisma Vineyard Chardonnay 2012

I placed this on the list because I remember how elegant and distinctive it was. I revisited last night and I am equally impressed by La Marisma. #lioco — 5 years ago
