Carneros, North Coast

Windsor Vineyards

Los Carneros Pinot Noir 1986

Found this bottle hiding on a shelf at The Artistry San Pedro. The owners were kind enough to allow me to open and decant it this evening.
Delightfully surprised that the porty nose blew off to reveal dried herby cran cherry rosemary notes with amarone style flavors and smoked oakiness on the palate.

Anniversary celebration in Jamaica. Does not get better than this as I’m with my soulmate ♥️

Day 2 and this picked up some urgency and a touch more character. Increased the score as a result.

@Ron R I think wine is a lot like marriage. A young wine, like a young marriage, can be exciting, bold, and full of energy. Over time it softens, the flavors meld together, and becomes something to behold. Congratulations! Cheers to many more years!

This is becoming our House chard @ $15/btl from Costco. Just enough oak to make it interesting not obnoxious - sexy toasted coconut, candied pineapple and golden apple on the nose. lush mid palate - big boned yet elegant. Balanced & delicious — 12 days ago

Los Carneros Vin Gris of Pinot Noir 2020

Drinking through some 19’s, 21’s, and this 2020. All with the same undertones. This one has a bit more rhubarb and herb on top of the citrus, wild strawberry, and watermelon rind. Perennial and sentimental favorite. — 16 days ago
