Even before Ian Brand was named the SF Chronicle’s 2018 Winemaker of the Year, the big silly wine mags - the ones that usually focus on Napa trophies -- were spazzing out over Ian’s new batch of wines, like this one. One mag threw a big number at it, named it a “Cellar Selection, and declared, “Ian Brand is the most interesting vintner in Monterey County.” We don’t often agree with those cigar-smoking old dudes, but here we do: this is a Chateauneuf-du-Cali: loaded with red fruit, black pepper, and dried red flowers, and tuned more toward "pretty" than "powerful." Decant if drinking tonight; hold if you’re more patient than we are.
