2018 1849 Wine Company Au Jus Monterey County Chardonnay
13.5% alc., pH 3.62, $24.99. Aged 6 months in French oak barrels. · Light golden yellow color in the glass. Aromas of confected lemon, vanilla and dried herbs. Better on the palate, with flavors of lemon, yellow apple, spice and a subtle herbaceous thread. A lighter, rather austere style that is soft and creamy in texture and has appealing gentleness, but I wanted more acid verve. Score: 87. Reviewed June 19, 2019 ARTICLE »
2018 1849 Wine Company Iris Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
14.5% alc., pH 3.58, $29.99. Released July 2018. Widely distributed in retail outlets. Striking label that is part of the 1849 Contemporary Art Collection. Aged 10 months in new French and Hungarian oak. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Leading off are aromas of black cherry and dark berry fruits and toasted oak. The modest, silky tannins are folded in around the mid weight black cherry fruit core that is imprinted with oak. There is a burnt quality to this wine on both the nose and palate. Will do in a pinch. Score: 85. Reviewed June 19, 2019 ARTICLE »
2013 1849 Wine Company Iris Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
14.0% alc., $25.70. Produced and bottled by 1849 Winery, Lodi, CA. Artwork on label is “Tool of Dissent” by Saber, a legend in the graffiti world and an urban art pioneer. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Deep aroma of well ripened dark fruits with hints of vanilla, toast, spice and rose petal. A explosion of very ripe black raspberry and blackberry fruit flavors greets the palate. Well-structured tannic backbone with a touch of oak and some finishing persistence. Powerful fruit is the main feature of this wine. Score: 89. Reviewed September 24, 2017 ARTICLE »
