Patz & Hall Chardonnay 2015

Sonoma Coast, California, United States
593 days ago

Pam scored this wine: 94/100

Rich, opulent, creamy, concentrated Chardonnay! Nose of apple, pear, butterscotch , honey. Complex and elegant wine with a lot going on in a glass. Incredible fully bodied wine with balanced acidity with a long concentrated mineral finish. At this price, it is for the cellar and a special occasion.

Mas Cavalls

Marimar Estate Mas Cavalls Pinot Noir 2013

Sonoma Coast, California, United States
593 days ago

Pam scored this wine: 91/100

Medium ruby colour with a nose of cherry, clove and a bit of earth. Ripe but restrained red fruit, and spice and some earthiness on the palate. A medium bodied Pinot Noir with noticeable but smooth tannins. Balanced acidity makes this a food friendly wine. Marimar Estate wines are always a favourite when you can get a hold of them!

Heitz Cellar Chardonnay 2015

Napa Valley, California, United States
593 days ago

Pam scored this wine: 91/100

This is what a great Chardonnay should exemplify - rich, round mouthfeel but not before you get a nose of restrained white tree fruit, apple and lots of minerality. The tertiary flavours are starting to emerge and will integrate with a bit more time in the cellar. Lovely long concentrated finish.

Decoy

Duckhorn Wine Company Decoy Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Sonoma County, California, United States
593 days ago

Pam scored this wine: 89/100

Deep berry with a fruit forward nose of blackberry and currant. Lively with medium tannins, easy and smooth. Balanced acidity with a medium long finish. Like all the Duckhorn wines, this one is delicious too.
