Paul Lato Pinot Noir 'SRH' Sta. Rita Hills 2021, 0.75L
Pinot Noir from Sta. Rita Hills, California

“In order to make wines of the highest caliber, I select unique vineyards that are cared for by talented vineyard managers committed to excellence. I strive to locate and source from not only the best vineyards but the best blocks within each of these vineyards. During the growing season, yields are restricted to achieve maximum concentration of flavor. Harvest is based on physiological ripeness, which changes depending on the vintage characteristics.
Cellar work is based on minimal intervention, cleanliness and purity of intention. Because every vintage is different, I do not believe in recipes. With due respect to science, I do believe that true artisanal winemaking is based on intuition, sensitivity and passion. Keeping the lots small allows for gentle handling throughout the winemaking process.
I want my wines to give pleasure and keep your palate interested until the last drop from the bottle – I hope you like them at first sip and love them at the last.” Producer Notes

Racines Sparkling Chardonnay Grand Reserve (LGR19-2) NV, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Sta. Rita Hills, California

"This is the best American sparkling wine I've ever tasted. The 2019 vintage base also includes 25% reserve wines from the 2017 and 2018 harvests. This Grand Reserve Chardonnay made from the cool Sta Rita Hills is crafted with a Champagne pedigree, and it shows. This Blanc de Blancs from across renowned Sta Rita Hills vineyards has undeniable Old World charm and sophistication. The aromatics boast ample toasted biscuit notes and great yeasty complexity from the 30 months on lees. The palate has a fantastic depth of fruit, spiced pear, cardamom, nutmeg and bruised apples. There is a subtlety of savoury biscuits and hints of almond cream. Elegant, yet bold and wildly delicious." 96 Clive Pursehouse, Decanter Magazine

"The NV Chardonnay Grand Reserve (Sparkling) is compelling, especially in the way it straddles the line between still and sparkling wine. Creamy and resonant in the glass, the Grande Reserve is laced with apricot, white flowers and chamomile. This is a superb showing for the entry-level wine in what will soon be a range of sparklers from Racines. This release is a blend of fruit from Wenzlau, Bentrock, La Rinconada and Sanford & Benedict .... These new releases from Etienne de Montille’s Racines kick off with the first sparkling wine made in collaboration with Rodolphe Péters. The new Grande Reserve, all 2018 in its first release, will gradually become a multi-vintage blend in the style of Péters’s Cuvée de Réserve Champagne." 93 Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Sea Smoke Chardonnay Estate Vineyard 2021, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Sta. Rita Hills, California

"Our estate-grown Chardonnay fruit was picked and hand-sorted in the vineyard before spending the night in our cold room. Chilled grapes were softly pressed, and the juice was gently pumped into a stainless-steel tank and cold settled. Once the heavy solids were removed, the juice was racked to a stainless steel fer mentor, then inoculated for primary fermentation. Following primary fermentation, the wine was racked to barrels, inoculated for malolactic fermentation, then periodically stirred to enhance depth and mouthfeel. The 2019 Sea Smoke Chardonnay was aged for a total of 10 months prior to bottling with no fining and no filtration.” Winery Notes

Tyler Mae Estate Pinot Noir CP 2020, 0.75L
Pinot Noir from Sta. Rita Hills, California

"The 2020 Pinot Noir Mae Estate CP has a medium ruby-purple color and lush pomegranate and raspberry streaked with iron, pepper, charcuterie, mushrooms and dark spices from its maturation in 100% new French oak. Medium-bodied, it has dusty tannins, seamless freshness, soft waves of perfumed fruits and a very long, spicy finish." 96 Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate

"The 2020 Pinot Noir Mae Estate Vineyard CP is a six barrel blend of the best lots in the cellar. Dark fruit, spice, earthiness and imposing tannins are the signatures. Readers should plan on cellaring the 2020 for at least few years. Today, it is pretty brutish, and yet there is good depth lurking beneath those potent tannins and structure. Justin Willett [of Tyler Winery] continues to make big moves. Willett recently purchased the iconic Fiddlestix vineyard and is now setting up a new base of operations at his Mae Estate vineyard." 94 Antonio Galloni, Vinous
