Pessagno Winery-Sleepy Hollow Vineyard-Chardonnay-Santa Lucia Highlands-California-2006-$32.00-A nose of citrus and spice, golden yellow in color.  A smooth, full bodied Chard, lemon zest, minerals, grilled pineapple, perfect acidity.  I have had this Chard a couple vintages in a row and they have been great, drinks like a $60 Chard.            WE-92            CR-4.5-5            Good with chicken, seafood, salads.

Sea Smoke Cellars-Southing-Sta Rita Hills-Pinot Noir-Santa Barbara County-California-2004-$65.00-A beautiful nose of dark fruit and spice, dense ruby color, a little darker than some Pinot’s.  A lush, smooth full bodied Pinot, black currants, black cherries, cola, great acidity, spice, a full minute finish.  When you buy a wine a few years back and know if you lay it down it will get better and the wine rewards your patience, that’s special.  One of the top two or three Pinot Noir’s I have ever had, was disappointed when the last drop was gone, amazing.  What drinking wine is all about.              RP-90+             WS-93             WE-93             CR-5              Good with lamb, chicken, veal.
