Tyler Santa Barbara Chardonnay 2013
Tyler's 2013 Chardonnay Santa Barbara County, a blend of Santa Maria and Sta. Rita Hills fruit, is just gorgeous. Stone fruit, smoke and spice notes are pushed forward, but it is the wine's pliancy and overall textural balance that stand out most, especially at this level. The 2013 spent just under a year in barrel followed by a few months in tank, a classic Burgundian-influenced aging regime.
Cristom Mt Jefferson Pinot Noir 2015
Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Mt Jefferson Cuvée Pinot Noir has vibrant red cherry and black raspberry notes with suggestions of baking spices, fertile soil and violets. Medium-bodied with a good core of rich, ripe red berry flavors and a solid backbone of grainy tannins, it finishes with a refreshing lift." Drink Date 2017-2022
Betz "Clos de Betz" 2011
Moving to the Bordeaux blends, the 2011 Clos de Betz (67% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot) shows the vintage profile with its mid-weight, lively and overall fresh feel. Black currants, spring flowers, mint and hints of lead pencil and cedar flow from the glass and this medium-bodied, lively and balanced red has bright acidity that’s balanced by good concentration and depth. Give it another 2-3 years in the cellar and enjoy bottles through 2023.
