A little bit too much. I wouldn’t drink a whole bottle and for me that’s the telltale. #sbcountywines #sbcounty #calichard — 9 months ago

9.0

#staritahills #pinotnoir #sbcountywines #paliwineco I believe a 90 is the right score for this wine. It's aging beautifully for a 2011. Deep and ripe PN the aromas are more VA and almost syrah or Zinfandelish than PN. What I love is the body and the refinement on the palate. There's a lovely sage and myrrh sensation that later leaves a dark cherry jam finish. Warm alcohol. — 2 years ago

More ripe and fruity than I remembered. Clearly warm climate #pinot #sbcountywines brown sugar and raspberry pie nose, balanced and soft tannins. Delicious wine, but perhaps lacking tension, acidity and texture. — 2 years ago

Clear and bright pale lemon. Clean pronounced aromas of ripe apricot, sage, fennel and gingerbread. On the palate it's dry albeit with a lush glyceric texture with medium plus intensity flavors of of apricot pie with a smiley charred crust and a touch of nutmeg and spice. Medium plus alcohol, medium plus acidity, well integrated oak, balanced with a medium plus finish. Complex, unique and well balanced. Only 22 barrels. #staritahills #chardonnayfromthebestplaceonearth #chardonnay #centralcoastwine #californianwine #sbcountywines — 2 years ago
