2014 J. Wilkes Santa Maria Valley Pinot Blanc

The Pinot Blanc is enticing and seductive, as you swirl your glass be prepared to be overcome by Fuji apple, lime zest, nectarine flesh, orange blossoms.  Faint hint of saline minerality.  Aromatics are bright, alluring, complex and primary.  Summer in a glass.  It has great balance, peach skin, nectarine flesh, white flower, minerality and broad mouthfeel, solid crispness, attack and cut (bright, mouth-cleansing acidity).  No need to age this wine with so much deliciousness and youthful verve.  But expect some honey, slate/mineral and hazelnut to emerge in 3-7 years.  May go longer in a proper cellar for those that prefer complexity and conversation to youthful beauty.

2013 J. Wilkes Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay

Our award winning Chardonnay has a wonderful marriage of bright apple flesh and skin, pear, orange blossom, echoes of topicality and a chalk-like mineral note, enough fine French oak/browned butter to show proper elevage, but the oak treatment elevates and spices the delicacy and balance of the wine’s aromatics.  Seamless transition in the palate from broad and savory attack (entry), a bright and oak-influenced mid-palate, and a lingering finish that shows just enough malolactic character to give a hint of butter and roundness to tame the just-less-than-stern acid structure from the Santa Maria Valley’s foggy mornings and cold nights.  The wine is perfectly balanced for cocktail hour or delicious plates tonight, but will continue gaining richness, nuttiness, a honeyed edge and depth for the next 3-5 years.

2013 J. Wilkes Central Coast Chanda Reserve Pinot Noir

Chanda’s Pinot Noir Reserve is lively and delicious from start to finish, absolutely classic Central Coast character showing both the elegance, fog, cool winds and sandy maritime soils of the Santa Maria Valley and Monterey growing areas.  Throw a dart at any menu in the county and this wine will likely match the dish perfectly.  From flasky white fish with a bit of tomato or mushroom in the recipe, light to strong artisanal cheeses, comfort food to starred Michelin cuisine, this will match it all.

2013 J. Wilkes Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

A proud recipient of two Gold Medals from prestigious wine competitions, this Pinot Noir has bright red berry fruits, dried cherry, earth and a hint of ‘sauvage’ make the aromatics of this young wine both bright and complex.  Restrained and ripe simultaneously, the nose shows brilliant harvest timing which captures the elegance of the vintage without giving up primary fruit or an earthy complexity that speaks of place with a hint of sexy baking spice. The wine is simultaneously light on its feet and rewards the curious palate with a deep rabbit hole of complexity, ripe red berry fruits and dry cherry, beautiful structure and a profound food-friendliness that will reward the freshest of ingredients by allowing the food to show through the wine. Vanilla-scented cherry and raspberry notes are complimented with a cool-climate structure and earthy depth that makes great pinot noirs.

2013 J. Wilkes STA. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

The Pinot Noir from the Santa Rita Hills has a fabulously complex nose that will remind many drinkers of Cote de Beaune.  A nice balance of ripe black berry fruit, tart red fruits and loamy earth dominate the aromas in the glass--not at all a fruit bomb--more of an earth-bomb with plenty of bright cherry and blackberry fruit to keep it lively and delicious.  Refined, complex aromas wait those who search for them deeply in the glass: cranberry, rhubarb, candied orange peel, hibiscus tea, beet-root all peek out meekly behind the enticing and understated fruit expression.  On the palate again, reminiscent of a young Burgundy wine from the Cote de Beaune--a tight-lipped young man concealing his character for the future.  Drunk young, the structure and complexity of this wine begs for food--the higher in fat the better.  Young, tight and grippy on the attack with firm structure and admirable fruit/earth in the long finish.  Complex persistence from mid-palate through finish, very rare for a new release.  Evoking both the Old and New Worlds simultaneously, this is a wine that will appeal greatly to those who pursue the earthy magic of Burgundy, but still want the California fruit/sunshine and a reasonable price point.
