Spotlight Collection PNX Carneros Pinot Noir 2017

A gracefully enjoyable #carneros #pinotnoir - two days in the wine fridge and this 2017 has awakened. Initial oak-forward aspect has dissipated, leaving subtle cherry, sous bois, cola nut aroma. Luscious spicy acidity on the palate with a deftness to the texture and soft tannins with a black coffee finish. I love to find elegance in a Pinot from Sonoma County, especially from a producer known for powerhouse Cabs. — 8 months ago

Domaine Carneros (Taittinger)

Cuvée de la Pompadour Brut Pinot Noir Chardonnay Rosé Blend

Bring on the rosé bubbles. Light salmon hue. Blanched almonds, yellow apple, apricot, chamomile, and chalk dust on the nose. Crisp and dry on the palate with more noticeable bread dough and citrus notes. 12% ABV. #taittinger #taittingertime #cuveedelapompadour #domainecarneros #rosebubbles #methodechampenoise #carneros #carnerossparklingwine #sparklingrosé — 4 years ago

Las Brisas Vineyard Albariño 2019

Lovely expression of #albarino from #carneros - This is best with a solid chill - 12°C or so. Tart citrus aromas, lemon oil, nice acidity on the palate with a pleasantly bitter grapefruit rind bitterness on the finish. Quite a nice pairing with moderately spiced Thai food if you don’t want to go with conventional wisdom of Riesling. — 10 months ago

Gloria Ferrer

Late Disgorged Blanc de Blancs Brut Chardonnay 2017

Sabred this lovely bottle! Love the Blanc de Blanca from #GloriaFerrer . Crisp and refreshing but still textured with tight bubbles. Citrus is balanced with brioche notes.

Sangiacomo chardonnay 2019

Despite the cooler #carneros AVA this #chardonnay comes in a bit overcooked for my liking. Pineapple, banana cream on the nose - richly textured palate, buttery overtones, decent acidity. — 10 months ago

Merryvale Vineyards

Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

Gold hue. Ripe cantaloupe, star fruit, Bosc pear, white flowers, and wet stone on the nose. Buttered popcorn and creme brûlée on the palate. Medium minus acidity. Full-bodied white that pairs well with pecan-crusted halibut, asparagus wrapped in prosciutto with a white truffle butter drizzle, and couscous topped with fresh thyme and gruyere. #merryvale #chardonnay #chardonnaywine #newworldwines #hydevineyard #hydevineyardchardonnay #carneros #calichard #malolactic #foodandwine #chardsohard — 4 years ago
