91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Lots of blue fruits, bacon fat, and plenty of peppery, meaty notes emerge from the 2017 Syrah Santa Lucia Highlands. This is another delicious, high-quality wine from this team that over-delivers. Giving up lots of upfront fruit, a rounded, sumptuous texture, and classic cool-climate Syrah notes, it’s going to deliver the goods over the coming 4-5 years." (06/2019)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "There is a strong woody touch to the nose of this bottling along with dried peach and dried mango aromas. The palate begins with a strong citrus-peel flavor then leads into green-pear and cider-apple flavors. The finish is a unique touch of kaffir lime leaf and lemongrass, which would go well with a wide variety of food. (MK)" (12/2018)

Mer Soleil Chardonnay is brought to you by the Wagner family, founders of Caymus in Napa Valley. This reserve bottling is full-bodied and aged in French oak, although only a portion undergoes malolactic fermentation so that a bright acidity is retained.
Price: $27.95

Connoisseurs Guide: "Pushy oak jumps ahead on first nosing here while likeable, red and black cherry fruit makes a slightly delayed appearance, and, if the wine is tad narrow and nowhere as rich or expansive as its more fully filled, single-site siblings, it possesses a good line of clean and continuous, slightly pert fruit with the energy to ensure several years of attractive drinking." (11/2019) K&L Notes: 92 points Anthony Dias-Blue in The SOMM Journal: "Earthy nose; lush and ripe with smooth texture and juicy cherry fruit; crisp and long, balanced....

92 points Vinous: "Bright ruby-red. Smoke-tinged dark berry and cherry aromas are complemented by suggestions of cola espresso and candied flowers. Nicely concentrated but lively as well offering sweet red and blue fruit flavors that are energized by building spiciness. Subtle tannins build on the persistent finish which leaves cola and floral notes behind. (JR)" (10/2018) 91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The entry-level Santa Lucia Highlands cuvée is the 2016 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands, a mix of all the single vineyards, fermented with 15% stems. Black r...

Top Pick!
93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of red-cherry reduction sauce meet with mud, clay, purple flowers, peppercorns and herbs on the dynamic nose of this single-vineyard bottling. The palate is quite dry and herbal with flavors of fennel frond, anise, and thyme, but there's a solid mulberry and exotic red-fruit core. (MK)" (12/2018)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Plum, black cherry and raspberry meet with cardamom, tomato and slate on the dynamic nose of this bottling. It's fresh and taut on the palate, with more raspberry, a hint of charcoal and caramel flakes on the finish. Tightly wound tannins will unfurl with patience. Drink 2020-2035. *Cellar Selection* (MK)" (12/2018)

Top Pick!
93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Lemon balm, pink grapefruit pith and a touch of sour cream show on the nose of this bottling, which quickly freshens up into more citrus elements as it sits open. There is strong tightness to the palate, where fresh lemon, nectarine and warmer pineapple tones are dusted with acidity and sea salt. (MK)" (12/2018)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Snappy raspberry and sweet hibiscus aromas are layered with dewy herbs on the fresh nose of this bottling. The palate is both high toned and fruity, with fresh flavors of raspberry, dried rose petal and Earl Grey tea riding on zippy acidity.

Offers crunchy minerality midpalate, with a finely textured, minerally finish. (KM)" (08/2019)


93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A strongly mineral kick of wet slate meets with apple peels, marmalade, toast and wool on the nose of this bottling. The palate is tense and taut with flavors of lime peel and kiwi, framed by a chalky minerality. (MK)" (08/2019) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Offers mouthfilling richness, with generous flavors of butterscotch, baked apple and glazed pear, accented by a twist of citrus zest. Spicy and toasty notes fill the finish. Drink now through 2023. (KM, Web Only-2019)" Connoisseurs Guide: "We tend to think of Chardonnays f...

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Light and slightly cloudy in the glass, this appellation blend offers aromas of red plum, caramel, soy sauce and Chinese five spice on the nose. The palate is loaded with bright strawberry and red cherry, with oaky hints of caramel throughout. (MK)" (07/2019) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Spicy, featuring finely textured dried raspberry and cherry tart flavors, accented by tea and cola notes. The minerally finish is focused and fresh-tasting, with some peppery hints. Drink now through 2022." K&L Notes: The Franscioni family pl...

94 points Wine Spectator: "A gorgeous version, ultrarich, supple and graceful, with plump plum, black cherry and wild berry flavors imparting mouthwatering juiciness and presence. Silky in texture, this is smooth and round, long and lingering. Drink now through 2022. (JL)" (09/2016) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Delivering what I consider a classic expression of this site, the 2014 Pinot Noir Rosella's Vineyard offers terrific notes of framboise, leafy, sappy herbs, crushed flowers and black currants. Elegant, medium to full-bodied and live...

92 points Vinous: "Limpid pink. Fresh red berries, candied rose and a building mineral element on the incisive nose. Silky and expansive on the palate, offering juicy, densely packed raspberry and cherry flavors that slowly turn sweeter on the back half. The floral note comes back strong on an impressively long, focused finish that shows no rough edges. (JR)" (08/2019) 90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Made by the Pisoni team from estate Pinot Noir, the 2018 Rose of Pinot Noir offers a fresh, elegant style as well as impressive notes of citrus, strawberries, ros...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sean Capiaux’s 2010 Pinot Noir Pisoni Vineyard is striking for its layered, deeply sensual personality. This is a relatively delicate, understated Pinot from the Pisoni Vineyard, a site that typically yields wines of exuberance and weight. Ripe red berries, crushed flowers, sweet herbs and licorice are some of the many nuances that grace the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. (AG)" (12/2012) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright dark red. Good peppery lift to the powerful aromas o...

93 points James Suckling: "Very floral and beautiful with plum and citrus with hints of smoke. Medium to full body, creamy texture and beautiful length. Firm and silky. Dry and beautiful. Drink or hold." (05/2017) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Tight and spicy, with a sassafras edge to the wild berry and raspberry flavors, offering a hint of anise and licorice. Lively acidity keeps this fresh and zesty. (JL)" (09/2017) 90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands is made in a more forward, pretty, ethereal style and offers lots of ch...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "As to the Pinot Noirs, the 2017 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands is a gem of a wine that’s unquestionably at the same level as the single vineyard releases. Mulberries, black raspberries, spring flowers, and forest floor notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, elegant Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir that leads with its fruit. It will keep for 7-8 years." (06/2019) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This appellation blend is a compelling show of the region, starting with fresh and lively aromas of black cherry, raspberry, loa...

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rich, clean and powerfully mineral-driven on the nose, this single-vineyard expression shows black cherry, tangy raspberry, crushed slated and damp gravel on the nose. There is tremendous depth of flavor to the intensely elegant palate, where strong but perfectly ripe dark fruits are balanced by tightly woven tannins, fresh acidity and more rock and soil flavors. (MK)" (06/2019) 94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Completely destemmed, the 2017 Pinot Noir Garys’ Vineyard has a beautiful fruit-forward character as well as notes of bright...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of my favorites in the lineup, the 2012 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard shows its 15% whole cluster fermentation with the darker fruit, ground pepper, herbs and background meatiness that shows on the nose. A rich, full-flavored, yet still seamless and elegant Pinot Noir, it has solid underlying structure and beautiful focus that comes through on the finish. It can be consumed anytime over the coming 5-7 years. This was another stacked lineup by the team of Dan Kosta and Michael Browne. All of these wines showed th...

93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Tipping the scales a bit to ripeness and richness without veering to heaviness at any point and a wine that shows nuanced touches of loamy soil as well as hints of crème brûlée to its ongoing theme of decidedly succulent ripe cherries, this full-bodied working is spot-on with respect to Pinot Noir suppleness now and is certain to reveal more of the characteristic velvety feel of its variety as time passes. That is not to say that its enjoyment is conditional upon further age, but cellaring will bring even more polish and gr...

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Lighter in the glass, this bottling is a somewhat more delicate style than usual for the Franscioni family, but just as delicious if not more so depending on preference. Aromas of raspberry, pomegranate and wild thyme lead into a palate that's loaded with strawberry, white pepper and bay leaf, finishing on vanilla cream. (MK)" (07/2019) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Contoured, featuring lilting flavors of dried raspberry, cherry and underbrush, supported by medium-grained tannins. Beefy notes emerge midpalate, leading to a silk...

93 points Vinous: "Brilliant red. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes ripe raspberry, cherry-cola, star anise and rose oil, along with smoky mineral and vanilla overtones. Shows deeper dark fruit character on the palate, offering sappy smoke-laced black raspberry, licorice and spicecake flavors that are enlivened by a spine of juicy acidity. Closes with repeating florality, fine-grained tannins and excellent, spice-tinged persistence. (JR)" (11/2017) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "There's a compelling mix of sweeter fruit and dry earth on the nose of th...

This is Master Sommelier Emmanual Kemiji's first winery, established in 1995 and followed by a string of other successful labels including Candela, Almvs, Antigv and Acvs. Small production and rare to find at retail, this fits Kemiji's style--big, bold and fruit-driven--and quite characteristic of this famous vineyard from the Santa Lucia Highlands.
Price: $29.95

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Tart and candied berry aromas meet with tangy pomegranate and hibiscus on the nose. The palate combines more cranberry and pomegranate flavors with dried herbs, all framed by energetic acidity and firm tannins. *Editors’ Choice* (MK)" (05/2019) Connoisseurs Guide: "As fruity as it is ripe and nicely focused on dark cherries all the way from first nosing through to its lingering, lightly tannin-firmed finish, this full and wide-open wine emphasizes the juicy aspects of Pinot above all else but gets a slight lift in sweetness ...

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Sourced from the northern part of the Santa Lucia Highlands, the 2017 Pinot Noir Highlands offers more dark cherry, spice, and bouquet garni notes and has a medium-bodied, darker, cooler-climate vibe on the palate. With good acidity and plenty of texture, think of it as a high-quality Côte de Nuits Village wine to enjoy over the coming 4-5 years." (06/2019) K&L Notes: Winery notes: "Full-bodied and complex with bright aromatics. Our flagship wine is sourced from several sustainably farmed vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands. ...

94 points Vinous: "Limpid ruby. Heady aromas of black raspberry, cherry cola and candied rose, plus exotic spice and vanilla flourishes. Sappy and impressively concentrated, offering cherry liqueur, dark berry and spicecake flavors complemented by sweet suggestions of mocha and cola. Comes off rich as well as lively, with no rough edges. Tightens up slowly on a sweet, extremely long finish shaped by smooth tannins that add gentle final grip. (JR)" (10/2018)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chardonnay Sleepy Hollow Vineyard delivers intense grapefruit, lemon curd and white peach notes with hints of cedar, nutmeg, fresh ginger and marzipan with a waft of beeswax. The medium-bodied palate delivers on flavors, with bags of citrus and spice characters, supported by a creamy texture and just enough freshness, finishing long. (LPB)" (09/2017) 92 points Vinous: "(50% new French oak): Limpid yellow-gold. Displays potent, mineral-accented aromas of tangerine, white peach, honey and tarragon. Sappy...

92 points Vinous: "(20% new French oak) Light bright yellow. Pungent mineral-accented Meyer lemon and pear nectar scents show very good clarity and hints of fennel and smoky lees. Minerally and focused in the mouth offering sappy citrus and orchard fruit flavors along with deeper buttered toast and melon nuances that build on the back half. Finishes supple smoky and very long with a sexy honeysuckle nuance hanging on. (JR)" (10/2018)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The more medium ruby-colored 2016 Pinot Noir Rosella's Vineyard has a terrific sappiness to it as well as loads of floral nuances, medium body, bright acidity, and straight up fabulous elegance. It’s not the biggest or richest in the lineup, yet is pure class, with perfect integration in its fruit, tannins, and acidity. It’s great today and will be great in a decade." (02/2019) 93 points Vinous: "Limpid ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red berries, incense, vanilla and candied flowers, and a spicy nuance builds w...

Wine Spectator: "Floral notes accent the crunchy green apple and pear flavors in this white, along with plenty of rich, spicy shadings. Offers butter pastry hints on the finish. Drink now through 2021. (KM, Web only-2018)" K&L Notes: Lifted citrus and floral aromas open the gates to a rich depth of textured fruit in our 2017 Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay. White peach and lemon cream fill the palate, enveloped by woodsy herbs, green tea, and jasmine. These fruit and floral elements continue to blossom over time, as a thread of graphite emerges to wind...

Completely destemmed and aged in 40% new barrels, it offers textbook notes of bright berries, strawberries, rose petals and sappy flowers, medium-bodied richness, a charming, forward style, and a clean finish. I...




90 points Wine Spectator: "Though light in color, this is nonetheless intense and concentrated, marked by dried cherry, raspberry, mineral and dusty cedar notes. Ends with a tasty aftertaste of cherry and raspberry. Drink now through 2017." (06/2011)


Producer's notes: "2017 turned out to be another exceptional vintage for Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay. Unlike the weather that resulted in the short 2016 crop, the 2017 vintage was nearly perfect climatically and the wines possess a number of notable attributes. This SLH bottling offers a great overview of our AVA; asian pear and baked apple compliment hints of vanilla wafers, toasted almonds and plenty of tropical fruit. A vibrant silky texture with plenty of crisp acidity, this Chardonnay should continue to evolve and improve over the next few year...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Pinot Noir Moulin Rouge looks to be the stronger wine, with plenty of raspberry and black cherries again, but more forest floor, earth, and violets. It is lush, ripe, and best drunk over the next 8-10 years. (RP)" (12/2015)

Most impressive for the subtle structure and delivery. (JL, Web-2016)" 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the purchased fruit, the 2014 Pinot Noir Le Moulin Rouge Pisoni Vineyard displays a decent plum color, plenty of straightforward black cherry fruit, spice, forest floor and loamy soil undertones. It is a delicious, excellent Pinot Noir, but pales in comparison to the estate offerings in 2014...

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Very light in the glass, this appellation blend is shows off aromas of earth, cherry, dark strawberry and a hint of wet wool.

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the top examples I was able to taste from this terrific vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands, the 2014 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard is a big, rich, concentrated effort that gives up full-bodied notes of savory herbs, scrub brush, black currants and the classic savory, earthy and mineral characteristics that this site is known for. Fermented with 25% whole clusters, it has lots of texture, lots of tannin, and lots of length. It's a smokin' wine to drink anytime over the coming 10-12 years. (JD)" (09/2016) ...

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Le Moulin Rouge Pisoni Vineyard is scented of red currant jelly, baked cherries and rhubarb pie with hints of black tea, garrigue, lavender and dusty earth.
