Prettay...prettay....prettay good, in the words of Larry David. Superb QPR at this price. Change from an Andrew Jackson is a great result here.

Almost has a Malborough-esque nose and palette. Very slightly creamy (definitely a positive) and eminently juicy. I’ll be stocking up on more.

One of the better Sebastiano vineyard offerings. Darker in the glass than I expected, offering a very appealing deep crimson.

Raspberry liqueur, redcurrant, and some loamy aromas. Backend hint of cassis and blackcurrant leaf.

Entry on palate is seamless, acidity is held in check. Loads of raspberry, blackberry, and blackcurrant flavors commingling beautifully. Finish is medium +.

Loads of aromas leap out of the glass; lime curd, grapefruit, pomelo. You can smell the tangy acidity.

The palate largely follows the nose, but there’s body and finesse. The acidity is so focused and intense that it slices like a katana. There’s a tiny bit of oak on the back end to go with some grapefruit pith. Harmony and lightness in abundance.

Perhaps the best CA Chardonnay I’ve had in a long while. If you’ve got $50 to spend on a new world Chardonnay that’s drinking great now but can take on some age, this is it.

92+. Probably one of the best values in Sonoma for Pinot. Zesty without being sharp. A slight roundness in the mouth but great balance with the tannin already. Raspberry/choc truffles on nose. Berries follow. Good length on finish with a hint of orange zest. Great stuff especially at $25/bottle.

Popped and poured, no decanting this time. Still fresh on entry, wonderful balanced acidity. Red fruit, iron, touch of earth. Fruit is still there. Easy 92.

92+ Surprisingly good. Wears the 15%+ alcohol well with well-integrated tannins, loads of black and red berry fruits, especially cherry and blackberry. A touch of spice on the backend and some good length as well. Could easily go another 3-5 years in bottle. Impressive QPR at $26.99

Great launchpoint CdP. Ready to drink now but could also hold for another 12-24 months.

Silky entry on mouth, black fruit, spice, hint of leather. All sorts of good stuff going on. Finish is well-integrated.

A steal at sub-$30.
