Kendall-Jackson 2005 Seco Highlands Estate Pinot Noir (Arroyo Seco)

  1. $35
A beautifully crisp Pinot, dry and silky and loaded with ripe cherry, raspberry, cola and Asian spice flavors. Tastes so opulent in fruit, yet has a subtle complexity leading to a long, spicy finish. This Pinot, from one of Monterey County’s top growing areas, is a sommelier’s dream.  — S.H.  (6/1/2007)

Cobblestone 2005 Chardonnay (Arroyo Seco)

  1. $29
Tastes superoaky, with a heavy layer of wood spice and butterscotchy char, but the underlying fruit is powerful enough to support it. The pineapple tart, peach custard and cinnamon flavors are crisp and juicy with acidity.  — S.H.  (4/1/2007)

Ventana 2003 Due Amici Red (Arroyo Seco)

  1. $28
The best thing about this wine is the acid-tannin balance. Sure, it’s ripe in blackberry and blueberry jam and cocoa flavors, but so are plenty of other red wines. But it has a cool-climate structure that makes it impressive. The Sangiovese in this blend with Cabernet Sauvignon lends a peppery, meaty note.  — S.H.  (12/15/2006)

J. Lohr 2002 Arroyo Vista Vineyard Chardonnay (Arroyo Seco)

  1. $25
Long in candied lime, papaya and buttered toast flavors, this lovely sipper is also crisp in acids. All the fruit drinks clean and minerally pure, like mountain water.  — S.H.  (5/1/2005)

La Crema 2012 Chardonnay (Arroyo Seco)

  1. $30
Made in a drier, tarter style than the winery’s Russian River bottling, this Chard favors elegance over opulence. It’s streamlined and crisp, with subtle notes of green apples, kumquats and honey, gently touched by smoky oak.  — S.H.  (6/1/2014)

The Mission 2011 Chardonnay (Arroyo Seco)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $20
This tastes bone dry, with cleansing acidity and firm minerality. It offers subtle layers of green apples, figs and tropical fruits, plus an edge of sweet vanilla.  — S.H.  (4/1/2013)

McIntyre Vineyards 2007 Mission Ranch Pinot Noir (Arroyo Seco)

  1. $36
This little appellation in the Salinas Valley is on an upswing with Pinot Noir, as evidenced by this fine bottling. It’s rich, as you’d expect from the perfect 2007 vintage, and well balanced, with the cherry, raspberry, cola and spice flavors bracketed by crisp acidity and smooth tannins. Probably not an ager, but a wine to watch.  — S.H.  (5/1/2011)

La Rochelle 2009 Mark's Vineyard Pinot Gris (Arroyo Seco)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $24
Brilliant, mouthwatering acidity marks this refreshingly clean wine. It’s very ripe, showing pineapple and lemon sour candy, papaya, green melon and vanilla spice flavors. Straddles the border between bone dry and just off-dry, although the honeyed sweetness might not show up officially. Great with Thai, Vietnamese and Asian-fusion fare.  — S.H.  (2/1/2011)
