2018 Charles Heintz Vineyard Chardonnay
94 Points: Superb; a great achievement

“From the great coastal site, this white sings in fruitful intensity and complex layers of flavor, a burst of Meyer lemon and grapefruit crispness complemented by richer undertones of Meyer lemon meringue and toasted pineapple.”

2018 The Key Chardonnay
94 Points: Superb; a great achievement

“High acidity leads the way to a lively, fresh palate of grapefruit, kiwi and lemon in this lengthy, textured white. Impressive from start to finish, it shows a nice integration of oak and tannin, with hints of baking spice, flint and stone.”

2018 Olivet Lane Pinot Noir
94 Points: Superb; a great achievement

“This tiny production is delicate in color and texture, offering nuanced notes of pomegranate, rhubarb and rose petal. With an edgy elegance, and impressive length on the palate, it finishes with a citrus-driven burst of acidity that lasts for days.”

2019 Bacigalupi Vineyard Chardonnay
92 Points: Excellent; highly recommended

“This wine offers balanced richness and intensity, a signature of the site, flowing in pineapple, Gravenstein apple and melon flavors. The texture is smooth and opulent, with a note of sea spray, wet stone and lasting hint of anise.”

2019 Durell Vineyard Chardonnay
92 Points: Excellent; highly recommended

“A whiff of matchstick leads to layered and intense fruit flavors, a bold, deep and fleshy expression of oak, pineapple and crème brûlée. The acidity is nuanced and supportive and the texture grippy and youthful.”

2018 Terra de Promissio Pinot Noir
92 Points: Excellent; highly recommended

“Exuberant in a mélange of spicy cherry, raspberry and sea-spray-like salinity, this balanced red shows underlying elegance and coastal influence. Black tea, clove and forest floor provide savory contrast and complexity that lasts through a lengthy, energetic finish.”
