Bishops Peak Chardonnay Central Coast 2015 Product #31659 (In Stock)
Bishops Peak Chardonnay Central Coast 2015 Bishops Peak Chardonnay Central Coast 2015

Back when the 2010 Bishop's Peak Chardonnay released at $15 per bottle, Wine Advocate said, "If there is a better California Chardonnay for the money, I would like to know about it," and Steve Tanzer's IWC said, "This delivers serious bang for the buck."  The only thing that's changed over the years is that the wine has gotten even better and - at least hear - not a $1 more expensive to you.

In 2015, 100% of the ripe Chardonnay fruit comes from Oliver's Vineyard in the Edna Valley - plenty sunny enough to get ripe flavors but so chilled by Pacific Ocean breezes that the wine finishes at 13.4% abv.  About half the wine ferments and ages in old (flavorless) French oak barrels - that gives the wine complexity and roundness.  And half is done in stainless steel tanks for maximum fruit and freshness.  Once blended, it's 100% delicious in a "Wow! - That's amazing!" kind of way.

"Meyer lemon, quince, white flowers and smoky minerals on the lively, incisive nose. Nervy citrus and orchard fruit flavors show very good clarity and a complementary subtle honeysuckle quality. Juicy and precise on the clinging finish, which strongly echoes the mineral and floral notes."  Vinous (Raynolds) 90 points

Talley Vineyards Pinot Noir Estate 2014 Product #31575 (In Stock)
Talley Vineyards Pinot Noir Estate 2014 Talley Vineyards Pinot Noir Estate 2014

Super bold and rich this vintage but still with elegance and focus to spare.  Lovely value.

"Brilliant ruby-red. Highly fragrant, spice-accented aromas of red and dark berry preserves and floral pastilles; a hint of vanilla emerges with air. Expansive raspberry and cherry-cola flavors are energized and lifted by juicy acidity and a late jolt of white pepper. Packs a solid punch but comes off lithe, finishing with excellent focus, well-knit tannins and strong persistence."  Vinous (Galloni) 92 points
