Le Bon Climat Chardonnay 2017

Pale lemon, aromas of Stone and tropical fruits, with floral and sweet spice notes, aged 18 months in 50% new French oak. On the palate flavors of apple, peach & apricot with citrus zest and toasty vanilla oak notes. Smooth long finish, well balanced, nice acidity, ending with fruit, vanilla oak and mineral character. — 16 days ago

"Isabelle" California Pinot Noir 2019

Delectable Wine
9.2

The 2019 Pinot Noir Isabelle is bright and effusive, with tons of aromatic presence and fine balance. Sweet red cherry fruit, orange peel, spice and dried herbs open first, followed by a host of perfumed floral notes that lead into the mid-palate and finish. The 2019 is silky and quite elegant, all it really needs is another year or two in bottle to come into its own. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, August 2022)

Nuits-Blanches au Bouge Santa Maria Valley Estate Bottled Chardonnay 2001

Incredible, my first aged CA #chardonnay #santamariavalley from a famous producer. A magnum aged 21 years onsite at the winery proved spectacular. Golden yellow in glass. Nose explodes with honeysuckle, marizpan, quince paste, preserved lemon. Opulent texture on palate, honeyed apple & citrus, vibrant acidity and wet stone finish. — 5 months ago

Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2020

Smells like fresh raspberries and wood, tastes like red licorice with a bit of citrus and just enough structure and tannin at the end to keep it light — 3 months ago
