Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2021

In line with the relic. Slightly purple tongue. Fruity, but not overpowering. — 19 days ago


Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2021


Such a young wine. Drinks really well now but I love older Chardonnay so this would be fun to try in a decade or so. — 4 months ago

Loring Wine Company

Clos Pepe Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009

Wes Hagen, 20 year veteran wine maker at Clos Pepe Vineyard, joined our group and gave us a master class in Santa Barbara pinot noir. We tried 11 PNs from 2004-2010, made by Loring, AP Vin, Sandler, Siduri, and Brewer-Clifton. This 2009 Loring had the meaty flavors that I love in a great US PN. — 25 days ago

Machado Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2018

A classic Pinot with bright red fruit supported by earthiness in the background. It was more than a warming note to our Santa Maria tri trip. — 6 months ago

Hapgood Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2021

This one is knit tight. Day 1 herbaceous, cranberry, hasn’t left the starting line. Needs a full day to begin opening. — 9 months ago

Julia's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

Fantastic pinot from Greg Brewer at Brewer-Clifton. Usually I find his pinots need a few more years in bottle to really sing, and while this one is going to get better with more time, it’s terrific right now. Drinks like a CA version of a Premier Cru burgundy. Terrific. — 3 years ago
