Arroyo Seco; Monterey Wine
Mineraly with some grass and mushrooms - like a forest floor. Also some melon and maybe even pineapple. A little bit weird, but smooth.

A recent Tasting Room selection; Bright pale silver gold in the glass.

Long finish of silky Toffee, Lemon, and Ripe Peach with Oak and Cola. Medium Acid... Read More

Cherry cola and cinnamon notes on the nose with classic black cherry and vanilla supporting. Elegant notes of black cherry, dark chocolate and licorice on the palate, with some clove and cedar notes, a touch of black pepper and a finish of vanilla.88 pts Read More

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
