Master Sommelier Sara Floyd, one of only 14 women in the world to hold this prestigious title, teamed up with California’s famous Pisoni family to make these wines which emphasize the lush fruit of the Santa Lucia Highlands, but de-emphasize oak flavors.
The 2009 Chardonnay, according to Robert Parker, “exhibits abundant notes of caramelized oranges, nectarines and white peaches in a tropical fruit-scented and flavored style. Terrific fruit intensity, medium body, wonderful purity and no noticeable oak make for a totally captivating Central Coast Chardonnay fruit bomb”.
Adds Parker, “As for the 2009 Pinot Noir, it is an early bottled, wonderfully fruity Pinot offering notes of damp earth, plum sauce, blueberries, raspberries and a hint of spring flowers. Round and ripe with velvety tannins and a lovely texture, this hedonistic 2009 is a captivating as well as reasonably priced Pinot Noir that truly over-delivers”.
Both of these wines are made for food and are a real steal at $22.99!
