Burnside Road Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

What a difference a year makes!
This Chardonnay is a pleaser- yellow apples, hints of lees, spring blossoms, a light citrus overtone and even some minerality.
Great texture- starts silky on the tongue then crunchiness fills the mouth then recedes just the right amount to leave enduring flavors of lemon, tart wild apples, chamomile, and mineral.

Cider Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Just gets better with time. Upon release I always finds these wines big and just-conjoined but after a few years they evolve so amazingly. Muted fruit so well integrated, light tannin and medium long finish — 2 months ago

Pelletti Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2019

Pale ruby color. Aromas of blackberry, baking spices and cola. Really smooth, elegant with juicy black cherry on the palate.

Burnside Road Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

Balletto Pinot showdown no. 1
Best in the mouth.
Light ruby-garnet. Visually appears to have age beyond it's 4 years to me.
Not a great nose- overripe fruit, some blue notes, oaky spice- maybe has seen new American oak?
Mouth: wow, great full++ mouth feel, a really nice roundness here, unexpected.
This wine is ready to drink right now!

Winery Block Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Balletto Pinot showdown no.3
Second highest rating but third as far as potential. I would wait another 6 mos to a year before opening another '18.
Medium ruby, clear.
Nose: fall leaves, earthy, less fruit expression.
Mouth: Airy, light body. Tart, more open than the '19 Cedar Ridge but not much depth, finished quickly.
