So, onto the wines:
Nose: Toasty hazelnut, ripe apple and Meyer lemon aromas.
Palate: Apple and citrus flavors, nutty and strong acidic finish that mellow as the wine was open longer. If drinking, I would decant for 30 minutes or so to mellow out the finish.
2005 Sea Smoke, Pinot Noir "Southing", Santa Barbara Hills AVA, CA
Nose: Lush Blackberry and Blueberry, dusty oak
Palate: Blackberry and Blueberry, dusty oak and some nice minerality. Excellent tannic structure, firm but not overdone.
Nose: Creamy peach and spicy apricots, some older subtle oak aromas tell of age. Some orange blossom emerges later.
Palate: Rich flavors and texture, yet light on its feet - not cloying or overbearing. I can drink this all night! Creamy peach, apricot, orange blossoms and honeysuckle. Great acidity still remains in this wine and refreshes the palate!
Nose: Earthy with herbal tea and some cherry
Palate: More of the same, red fruits, herbal tea and earth, some minerality. Fine-grained tannins finish it off.
Nose: Red currants, meat and cedar.
Palate: Red currants and cherry, spicy cedar, older herbs like bay leaf, loads of tannin on the finish.
Cheers and enjoy the days leading up the big holidays coming up in December!
