Au Bon Climat

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 — a month ago

SLH Santa Lucia Highlands Estate Grown Pinot Noir 2019

Costco. A great Pinot for me. Not lean, but richer and fuller bodied. Definitely buy again — 24 days ago

Alban Vineyards

Reva Alban Estate Vineyard Syrah 2013

Pop and pour at Luce in San Francisco. A majestic dark ruby red color. On the nose: bursting from the glass are beautiful notes of plum, stewed meat, cedar, some black raspberry, smoke, floral. Taste: smooth, rich, juicy wine with dark fruit, worn leather, meaty, bitter chocolate, and a spiced graphite long finish. YUM! A day before fire up for the Kevin Hart show in SF. Cheers! — 6 days ago

Jonata Winery

Todos Santa Ynez Valley Syrah Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Deep dark purple with thin edges and long legs. The nose is fruity and savory. So much fun. Blue and blackberries for days. It’s always so lovely when you find those grilled meat aromas on a wine. Pretty floral notes along with mocha and olives. This doesn’t scream California to me but it does scream delicious.

Nice and supple without too much heat but I can’t place the blend. Syrah heavy with plenty of Cab but the Viognier, Grenache, Petit Verdot, Merlot, and Sangiovese I didn’t necessarily call. Finesse instead of brute strength. Purity instead of brawn. Crunchy tannins and nice acidity. Sophisticated and approachable on the palate. Juicy fruit and serious structure. Long, tantalizing finish with spice. Sexy stuff.

Tensley

Colson Canyon Vineyard Syrah 2020

Delectable Wine
9.4

The 2020 Syrah Colson Canyon Vineyard is a dense, potent wine. The purity of the fruit is remarkable. Readers will have to be patient, as the 2020 is still incredibly primary. Inky red/purplish fruit, lavender, spice, menthol and rose petal open with a bit of coaxing. All this needs is time and a bit more polish. As always, the Colson Canyon Syrah is one of the most distinctive wines in Joey Tensley's range. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, August 2022)

Pisoni Vineyards

Estate Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2018

This is the 20th release of this wine and has the Pisoni DNA written all over. Always a bit shy on the nose at first, a few minutes of aeration do the trick and reveal well defined, fresh aromas of violets, red and black cherries, forrest strawberry, dried herbs, cola and wood smoke. The lively acidity balances the fruit concentration and the ripe, fine grained tannins neatly frame this medium to full bodied anniversary vintage. Drink now until 2032. — 24 days ago
