Lioco

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. .

A truly varietal #cabernertsauvignon from #California #alexandervalley even though the vineyard borders on #russianrivervalley and #chalkhill Has a little bit of #petitverdot all’s I knows is this is about as close as California gets to a #claretstyle — a year ago

Paul Hobbs is one of the greatest producers of California pinot noir. Opulent, floral and fruits forward in youth. This is my 2nd bottle of 2012 since 2015. The fruits have somewhat settled down. I remember my first experience with this floral, beautiful wine as clearly as if it had happened just yesterday.

カリピノの魅力を教えてくれたPaul Hobbsのピノノワール。3年前(2015年)に開けて以来の2本目。香り高く、華やかでフルーツ感が前面に出ていたあのピノは、落ち着いた感じになっていました。このピノに関して言えば、3年前に飲んだ時のあの華やかな香りが忘れられないなー。

Pineapple, lime, vanilla-caramel finish, soft creaminess balanced by bright acid. Beautiful! Wondering how it'll evolve #russianrivervalley #chardonnay — 3 years ago

Hartford Court

MacLean's Block Pinot Noir 2009

8.2

Almost opaque with light a ruby core and pink rim. Combo of primary and secondary notes on the nose driven by very ripe red and black fruit. Med + intensity and complexity with abv sticking out. Notes of roses, spice, milk chocolate, tarragon, vanilla and bread along with the fruit. Unfortunately the palate fell short of the nose. Med intensity and complexity with elevated alcohol and a bitterness. Med length. #hartfordcourt #sonoma #russianrivervalley #pinotnoir #singlevineyard #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago
