2015 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay Tasting Notes
On the nose, lovely notes of summer melon, peach, and spicy pear mingle with hints of green fennel and minerality. The palate echoes the aromas, with abundant flavors of peach and cantaloupe, as well as rich crème brûlée and marzipan notes. A streak of lively acidity adds poise and purity throughout.
2015 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir Tasting Notes
Aromas of black cherry, cranberry, and cinnamon, as well as deeper notes of mulled spice, black licorice, dark chocolate, and earthy forest floor. On the palate, it is light on its feet, without ever being light, displaying wonderful drive and dense, fine-grained tannins that add structure.

Riedel Glasses & Decanter
Every wine lover needs some nice glasses which is why I recommend Riedel for serious wine drinkers. The glasses are gorgeous and they have incredible decanters which are just as essential as wine glasses for those drinking heavier reds such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Bordeaux blends.
A few of my go to Riedel items are below, including:
La Voix Pinot Noir Gift Set
A wine brand I have become very familiar with in Santa Barbara’s Wine Country is La Voix. Made by winemaker Steve Clifton, these Pinot Noir wines are extremely balanced, beautiful, and crowd pleasing every time I have shared them at a dinner party or as a gift.
Gift the La Voix Pinot 3 Pack for $175. Purchase online here.
Pottery Barn Fur Wine Bag
With every fabulous wine you’re gifting, gift an even more fabulous gift bag. I adore this Pottery Barn Fur Wine Bag and it really adds that extra touch when you show up at a party with a bottle of wine for the host or any holiday wine gift. At $16 it’s such a great extra touch, shop at Pottery Barn here.
