|2009 Chardonnay (PennyFarthing)|
How seldom today does one find Chardonnay permitted to express its true nature, resembling more a lush, sweet golden delicious apple than the oppressive toast and butter we see nowadays.
We all know that California Chardonnay has become something of a beast.
|2005 Pinot Noir (Second Fiddle)|
Fiddlestix is a magical playground of differing sites and clonal selections, owned and farmed by Kathy Joseph. I adore her wines and have wished for many years to do a Pinot project with her, having come to know her as my former UC Davis study partner who then went on to found the wonderful Fiddlehead Cellars brand in the early 1980’s. Later, she planted the Fiddlestix Vineyard in the famed Santa Rita Hills appellation of the cool central coast with a mélange of sexy scions.
