2015 Nielson Pinor Noir Santa Maria Valley
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 89 Points
Genteel and pretty, this mature Pinot Noir offers an elegant bouquet of plum tart, strawberry-rhubarb pie, berry compote, nutmeg, coriander seed, mace and baking spice scents. It shows both fine evolution and a bit more savory depth on the palate, where accents of mace, coriander seed, tobacco leaf and a hint of cardamom support fruit flavors centered on baked red plum, strawberry and red boysenberry. A trace note of forest mushroom appears as the wine airs. Dry and softly tart, it is built for food service and fully ready to enjoy. 570 cases produced.

2015 Gregory Graham Syrah Lake County

San Francisco Wine Panel Score 89 Points

Greg Graham’s Syrah is always soft-edged and forthcoming and the nose offers a genteel melange of plum, cherry and peppercorn aromas with a hint of sweet-savory spice in the background. It is medium-bodied, supple in texture and delivers lingering flavors of plum, cherry, dried cranberry and tobacco along with a hint of peppercorn. It is ready to enjoy and will be tasty with a wide variety of entrees.

2018 Odonata Malbec Pedrigal Vineyard San Benito County

San Francisco Wine Panel Score 90 Points

Although varietally on-point, this Malbec has a character quite different from previous Odonata bottlings. The nose offers an almost textbook blueberry, currant, mocha and sandalwood combo, yet those scents are perfumed by intriguing counterpoints of laurel, rosemary and pumpkin pie spice. Fruit takes center-stage on the palate along with sweet tobacco and baking-spice notes to push the herbal exotica into deep background. This wine may prove even more fruit-centric in another year, although a supple texture makes it an easy drinker already. 400 cases made.

2018 Whitehall Lane Cabernet Sauvignon Rassi Vineyard Sonoma Valley

San Francisco Wine Panel Score 91 Points
Black raspberry, black currant preserves, dark sour cherry and sweet dark plum join hazelnut, baking-spice and sweet vanilla scents in the nose of this notably well-priced Cab. Black currant, blackberry and mulberry flavors dominate on the palate, where polished tannins join nut husk, black tea leaf and graphite undercurrents to bring depth and firm the mouth-feel. The result is a gutsy, lingering medley of all that the aromas promise. A fine companion to steaks and winter stews right now, it is likely to improve for at least eighteen months.

2012 Clos Pizzarra “El Ramon” Proprietary Red Wine Bellmunt Vineyard

San Francisco Wine Panel Score 92+ Points

Very ripe, rich yet structured nose of strawberry jam, cassis, black currant, sour red cherry, pomegranate syrup, white and black peppercorn, sumac berry, licorice root, hazelnut toffee, dark pipe tobacco and dried dark rose. On the palate, it is ultra palate-coating and shows sturdy tannins and dark minerality to create a gutsy overall feel. The finish is youthful and extremely long, and it finishes with a push of strawberry jam, red cherry, red currant, cassis, pomegranate, cedar, toffee and vanilla poised above a rich vein of dark earth. It is unfiltered and has thrown some sediment. 580 cases produced.

2020 Sobon Zinfandel ‘Fiddletown” Lubenko Vineyard Amador

San Francisco Wine Panel Score 90 Points

This is a soft-edged and richly fruity Zin with aromas of dark cherry, sweet red plum, dried cranberry, raspberry and star anise which rise above undercurrents of black peppercorn. It is just as fruity on the palate, with a plump mouth-feel and all the promised flavors along with notes of violet and blueberry. Long, balanced and satisfying all the way, it is a pleasure now and may bring more next year. 1100 cases produced.


2020 Whitehall Lane Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley

San Francisco Wine Panel Score 91 Points

Scents of honeydew melon, stone fruit, lychee, grapefruit pith and preserved lemon create a rich harmony in the nose of this well crafted bottling. It is gently palate-coating and attractively zesty in the mouth, where the same mix of melon, stone fruit and citrus carries through a lingering finish. It is ready to enjoy and will be a versatile companion to fish or fowl or easygoing summer picnics.

2019 The Fields Chardonnay Sonoma Coast

San Francisco Wine Panel Score 90+ Points
This is a bright and forthcoming Chardonnay with an racy, food-friendly balance. The nose combines scents of fresh apple, green apple skin, lemon, lime and a hint of peach pit. Fresh applesauce, quince, preserved lemon, key lime and hints of clove and vanilla join mineral notes on the palate, where the texture is sleek and rather Macon-like. The finish lingers well and the wine will be easy to enjoy with a wide variety of appetizers and entrees. 450 Cases produced, by Baker Lane Winery.

2019 Dashe Chenin Blanc “Les Enfants Terribles” Clarksburg “Concrete Cuvee”

San Francisco Wine Panel Score 91+ Points

Rich in fruit, if clearly dry, the nose of this deftly balanced bottling is a harmony of fresh pear and apple, baked green apple  (skins on), quince and lemon blossom scents, with quiet mineral undertones. It is supple and attractively zesty on the palate, where flavors of fresh pear and apple, baked green apple, membrillo and suggestions of dried lemon and orange peel rise above a subtle mineral background. It finishes zesty and lingers with a gently tongue-coating impression of fruit. It is ready to enjoy and should prove a handy match for a wide variety of holiday dishes. 843 cases produced.


2018 Foley Johnson Chardonnay Carneros

San Francisco Wine Panel Score  91+ Points
From the moment the cork is pulled this wine speaks of ripe fruit and creamy oak. The nose melds scents of baked apple, yellow peach, pineapple core, toasted meringue, caramel, vanilla, nutmeg and a hint of buttered popcorn. In the mouth it proves as opulent and palate coating as expected yet surprises with a fine dinner-balance. Lingering, dry finished and an fine sipper, it would be a nifty companion to apple-stuffed roast chicken and is ready to enjoy.

2019 J. Wilkes Pinot Blanc Bien Nacido Vineyard Santa Maria Valley

San Francisco Wine Panel Score 91+ Points

J. Wilkes is one of California’s best Pinot Blanc producers and the 2019 is another hit. The aromas are vibrant, focused and forthcoming, with scents of fresh apple, dry peach, Asian pear, chamomile, preserved lemon and background hints of lavender, white pepper and flint. On the palate,  it proves silky in texture, while flavors of green apple, Korean melon and dried golden mulberry take center stage. The finish is dry, flavorful and lingers with appealing refreshment. It is ready to enjoy. 2240 cases produced.

2017 Altopiano Pinot Grigio Terre di Cheti, Italy
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 88 Points
Forthcoming in fruit and immediately engaging, this pretty pool-side white offers aromas of golden fig, Sharlyn melon and honeysuckle, with a kiss of citrus. It is as easy-going as expected on the palate, where honeysuckle, chamomile, fig and melon flavors find a genteel harmony. Quietly lingering and gently zesty, it is a fine gulper, built for food service. Best served chilled.
