Domaine de la Côte

Bloom's Field Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2020

Over the weekend we had the pleasure of opening the 2020 Domaine De La Côte Bloom's Field Pinot Noir from Lompoc, California.

On the nose there is cherry, strawberry, raspberry, cinnamon, clove, baking spice and dry dusty earth.

On the palate there is cherry, strawberry, raspberry, spice, hibiscus, vanilla and forest floor.

This wine is medium bodied with a smooth fresh mouthfeel medium + mouthwatering acidity and medium fine tannins that lead to a long red fruit earthy finish. On this Wednesday heading over the hump towards the weekend let us all remember all the good things that we have and family and friends we dearly cherish. Have an exciting rest of your week in hopes the weekend will refresh our hearts. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

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

Ridge Vineyards

Estate Monte Bello Vineyard Chardonnay 2020

Touch of oak. Good bit of acidity. Little hot and alcoholic. Not bad. Lacking creaminess and some fruit that my favorite Cali Chardonnay has. — 2 days ago

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
