Arroyo Seco; Monterey on Snooth

  • Scott Family Estate Pinot Noir Arroyo Seco Dijon Clone 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of crushed blackberries and clay greet the nose followed by some spicy oak and barbecue sauce nuances. Pretty bright and fresh on entry with very fine-grained, stiff tannins underpinning a rather big if slightly blousey core of blueberry fruit. This shows off a bit of spice on the mid-palate, which remains quite dry and firm. Gains some cas... Read More

  • J. Lohr Fog's Reach Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Dense ruby leading to garnet in the glass. Big toast and smokiness on the nose with hints of cocoa, vanilla and some light funk. Once that gives way, there is lush, dense strawberry, raspberry and cherry fruit. Very light suggestions of sage and white pepper. On the palate, it has a spicy entry. Oregano and thyme, followed by denser crushed... Read More

  • Ventana Vineyards Chardonnay Arroyo Secco 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is from a long line of great Chardonnays from this producer. This is the Gold Stripe designation. Their 2010 tastes partly barrel fermented and partly stainless fermented. It has characteristics of both (Malolactic notes, oak, citrus). Rich fruit--Very nice effort. Lots of extract-- My rating 92. Tasted twice in Aug 2012-- Exc value at... Read More

  • Carmel Road Pinot Noir Arroyo Seco 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Rather floral on the nose and quite perfumed. Gentle leesy edges add nuance to the core of peach and almond toned fruit that has a distinctive cherry note to it. Unusual but attractive on the nose. Medium plus-bodied in the mouth with an early rush of lemon candy that settles into a baked apple and lemon groove on the mid-palate. This has a gent... Read More

  • The Monterey Vineyard Arroyo Seco Chardonnay 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This stunning Chardonnay is of the big style with rich Monterey fruit, oak, nice gold color and long finish. Its 14.5% alc indicated a late harvest. Still good in 2011 but fading a bit in 2012. Tasted again in early 2013-- It is still doing well. My rating--- 94. Read More

  • Kendall-Jackson Sauvignon Blanc California Vintner's Reserve 2009

    Snoothrank:

    The nose showed ripe peach up front with notes of kiwi and lime. With time in the glass, aromas of green grass and spicy minerals joined the ripe fruits to present a very balanced bouquet. On the palate, it was crisp yet medium-bodied with melon, rich white fruits and a hint of bitter citrus. The finish tapered off with lasting pear and mouthwat... Read More
