Klipfel - Gewurztraminer SGN
Bright fruit of pears and mangoes, on the sweet end of Gewurtz's, but works with dry goat cheese.
Artesa - Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve
Gritty cabernet with plenty of tannins, notes of chocolate, tobacco and smoke. Very dry. Short finish. Not one of my favorites.
Imagery Artist Collection - Petite Sirah Port (Paso Robles)
Excellent P.S. Strong fruit, dark cherries and chocolate, well balanced tannin with light pepper, long smooth finish to a slight smoke.
Artesa - Chardonnay Estate Reserve
Yellow in color. Medium rim variation. Medium legs. Lemon. Light/Medium bodied. Juicy texture. Medium finish.
Au Bon Climat - Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County
Without a doubt, this is a SB pinot. More acidic, somewhat astringent, with berry overtones. Not my favorite pinot, but stands up to medium-well beef.
