What a unicorn. So did you know this was made by the great chef de caves ‘maudiere’ of @dom perignon and harveates from Monterey county grapes In 1983. It was only discourged and bottled recently. Only en magnum. Our buddy fred dame bought them all and presented one tonight. Alright, not ethereal, definitely a treat with a cool story.
Monterey baby!!!!! Thanks Fred and go GWC

Reserve Monterey County - Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay 2018

Tribute to my momma, summer, and reconnecting *in person* with beloved companion. Rich and delicious yet not heavy on the tongue. Fresh, bright. Lovely. (And we don’t usually like Chardonnay). — 18 days ago

Austerity Monterey Pinot Noir 2018

A light fragrance of plums and dark berries…
Drinks really well, that is fruit forward with smooth flavors of dark berries, chocolate and a hint of spice. Finishes smoothly and is really easy to drink!

Petit Reserve Central Coast Rosé Blend 2020

Color of bubbly pink with mix of grapefruit. Nose of pineapple, lychee, a bit mineral, savory spice and a bit warm, a bit peach, and guavas. Taste follows the nose with addition of some bitter zest note and warm alcohol. Aftertaste shows some more flowering note. Not bad. — 3 days ago

Sine Qua Non

Entre Chien et Loup White Rhone Blend 2015

This is a very interesting Chardonnay based white blend from California.

Full bodied and bold with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate and fruit forward.

Showing citrus, ripen apples, spices, melons, light tropical fruits, oak, sea salt, mangoes, honey, bitter herbs and peppercorn.

Not for everyone, but if you are looking for a different kind of wine, try this.

Spicy, tangy and very rich. Showing great complexity with a nice mouthfeel.

Thank you John for sharing this with me.

This 6 year old is very unique. Not my style necessarily, but interesting enough for me to enjoy it.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 44% Chardonnay, 40% Roussanne, 8% Viognier and 8% Petit Manseng. Aged for 19 months, mostly French oak barrels and some in concrete and stainless steel.

15.2% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$200.
