  • Okay, getting back to the topic at hand, in effect the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA is the other side of those mountains.  Arroyo Seco is basically due east of Big Sur.  And there's San Antonio Valley a little further south.  (Pierce Family, whom I have touted on the "Completely Different" thread, are down there.)  Here's a nice map: http://wine.ap...

  • J. Lohr Estates Falcon's Perch Pinot Noir 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Dark and distinguished color in the glass. Light purple fruits break apart on the palate, scattering a strawberry pink-fruit essence. Lots of heat on the front and back palate with a distinct overlay of blackberry and cherry notes. Read More

  • J Lohr Chardonnay Riverstone Arroyo Seco Monterey 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Nearly sparkling with a hint of sweetness, but overall on the dry side. Lemon lime fizz, brass doorknobs, and apricot spice on the palate. At only 12% alcohol, it's decent for a Wednesday evening. Read More

  • Muirwood Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Monterey 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Excellent value Cabernet from the Central coast. Prunes, pepper, and a few earth tones. Tannins are not as round as I like, but good nonetheless. At this price, this will become a regular drinker. Read More

  • Wente Vineyards Reliz Creek Pinot Noir Arroyo Seco 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Very Pinot on the nose with black cherry, earth, and a nice shading of oak, over a little rhubarb and herb. Opening with lovely spice on the palate this is soft and gentle yet moderately intense on the palate with lots of a raspberry and cherry. The style that recalls Pinot from an earIier time, Attractive clarity on the palate with nice mineral... Read More
