2018 Boars' View Pinot Noir The Coast

Lastly, the 2018 Pinot Noir The Coast saw the standard complete destemming and spent 10 months in 50% new French oak. It shows a killer bouquet of sweet black raspberry fruits as well as baking spices, forest floor, licorice, darker, earthy notes. With full-bodied richness, nicely integrated acidity, and a great finish, it's a step up over the 2017 (and the 2016) and is going to impress for a solid 10-12 years.

These rich, powerhouse wines are made by Thomas Rivers Brown. They don’t come cheap, but they’re brilliant wines across the board.

2018 Boars' View Chardonnay Sonoma Coast

I can't decide if I like the 2018 or the 2016 more, but both are brilliant wines. The 2018 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast has a slightly fresher, more vibrant style while still being packed with ripe peach, apricot, honeysuckle, and brioche aromas and flavors. Despite being brought up in new barrels, it's soaked up the élevage beautifully and is balanced and full-bodied, with terrific freshness and a big finish. It should drink well a decade or more.

2017 Boars' View Pinot Noir The Coast

Similar levels of forest and spice notes emerge from the 2017 Pinot Noir The Coast, which shows the more focused, savory style of the 2017 vintage nicely. Plenty of black cherry, toasted bread, baking spice, and forest floor, medium to full body, and rock-solid overall balance all make for a beautiful Pinot Noir. It will keep for at least 10-12 years.

2017 Boars' View Chardonnay Sonoma Coast

Slightly lighter gold-hued than the 2016, the 2017 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast is another riveting Chardonnay from Thomas Brown. Honeysuckle, marmalade, caramelized peaches, and spice notes all dominate the bouquet, and it's a more focused, linear wine compared to the 2016 yet still has beautiful depth and purity. This is another powerful wine that will be loved by California Chardonnay lovers out there. Drink it over the coming 7-8 years.

2016 Boars' View Chardonnay Sonoma Coast

Coming all from the Fort Ross-Seaview region of the Sonoma Coast and aged 15 months in new oak, the 2016 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast sports a deeper gold hue as well as a blockbuster bouquet of buttered stone fruits, toasted almonds, marmalade, brioche, and crème brûlée. These carry to a full-bodied Chardonnay that has good acidity, a rounded, opulent mouthfeel, and a great finish. This rich, powerful, Burgundian style effort is drinking beautifully today yet should easily evolve through 2028.
