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)

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)

Wente 2007 Reliz Creek Pinot Noir (Arroyo Seco)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $25
Few Pinots at this price are this nice to drink so soon. The wine is dry and elegant, crisp and silky, offering deep flavors of cherries, raspberries, cola, cinnamon spice and sweet, smoky oak.  — S.H.  (2/1/2011)

Mercy 2008 Chardonnay (Arroyo Seco)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $22
Good price for an upscale Chardonnay this rich and interesting. It’s oaky, with vanilla and buttered toast flavors, but the underlying pineapple and Meyer lemon fruit easily supports the wood, while brisk, refreshing acidity provides balance.  — S.H.  (8/1/2010)

Martin Ranch 2008 J.D. Hurley Sauvignon Blanc (Arroyo Seco)

  1. $17
Break out the prosciutto, potstickers and other delicious appetizers for this crisp, fruity wine. The zesty acidity brightens fresh flavors of lemons, limes and kiwis. Shows how beautifully this little appellation in the Salinas Valley treats white wines.  — S.H.  (11/1/2009)

Radog 2006 Sauvignon Blanc (Arroyo Seco)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $16
The Arroyo Seco is a rocky bench between the Salinas Valley and the Santa Lucia Highlands. It’s really great terroir for white wines because the conditions allow for extraordinarily long hangtime, while cool, foggy nights preserve vital acidity. You couldn’t ask for a fresher, more vibrant Sauvignon Blanc than this one. It’s bone dry and zesty and rich in pineapple…  — S.H.  (12/15/2007)
