Santa Lucia Highlands 2015: The Grapes of a Wrathful Vintage

The relatively small Santa Lucia Highlands region is the source of some of California’s finest Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays. While quality has been on the upswing in recent years, drought conditions and strange weather have had a severe impact on production.

Vinous Favorites

2015 Hahn Family Wines Chardonnay ($25.00) 90

2015 Hahn Family Wines Chardonnay, 90 points

Fresh melon, nectarine and honey on the nose and on the palate, with vanilla and floral nuances building in the background. Juicy and focused in style, with acidity adding cut and back-end lift. Closes silky and long, with a hint of smokiness and a touch of refreshing bitter citrus pith. (JR)


Cellar Favorites

2009 Sperling Riesling Old Vines Okanagan Valley British Columbia

Sperling’s 2009 Riesling Old Vines is a lovely Okanagan Riesling that is aging gracefully. What I like most about the 2009 is its remarkable balance, and how young it still is.
