Pinot Noirs. Capiaux's Pinots are rich, fruit-driven and generous wines with considerable near and medium-term appeal. Capiaux nailed 2012 - his wines have great depth and richness, but aren't overdone. Even with all of their immediacy, I found these wines improved considerably with air, so I would open them at least an hour or two in advance.

"Blue/blackish fruit, violets, lavender, spices and white flowers all meld together in the 2012 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard. Here the flavors are rich, dark and enveloping to the core, with terrific depth and tons of pure intensity."

WINE MAKER'S NOTES - "Ultimately, the distinguishing characteristics of any exceptional wine are derived from the terroir of its vineyard sources. This 2012 Monterey Pinot Read More...
Noir is sourced primarily from the very expressive Panorama Vineyard (76%) nestled in the foothills of the Arroyo Seco AVA. The elevated structure, character and grace of this wine comes from the artistic blending of fruit from two small parcels by our talented wine making team; the Rincon Vineyard in Monterey (13%) and Clark Vineyard in Arroyo Seco (4%). These vineyards have been certified sustainable by the SIP organization (Sustainability In Practice) since 2008."

The balance of fruit, acidity and moderate tannins makes this wine a perfect companion to fine cuisine.

blending process just prior to bottling, the proportion of each varietal was chosen to accentuate the richness of flavor and maximize depth, complexity, mouthfeel and finish. The addition of a small amount of Muscat Canelli and Riesling, which are white wine grapes, may seem a little odd but it is actually a common practice in red blends to bring out the mid-palate and enhance the fruitiness.

The 2011 vintage of Gifft Red Blend is comprised of 10 different varietals, blended to showcase the fully-integrated bright fruit character of each component. With aromas of blackberry and ripe plum and loads of black fruit on the palate, it exhibits a smooth, silky mouthfeel on a mediumbodied, soft round frame with a touch of vanilla and sweet oak.

with evening coastal fogs that often linger until mid-morning the following day. This natural cooling effect causes a unique lengthening of the growing season, something that winemakers call “hang time”. Increased hang time leads to more intense flavor development and an enhanced richness of the fruit.

Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were gently whole-cluster pressed, chilled, and racked clean to a refrigerated stainless steel tank. The juice was slowly fermented at a cool temperature to accentuate the aromatic fruit components. About half of the blend was aged in stainless steel in order to retain the bright fruit flavors and crisp acidity. The other half was aged on 100% French oak to bring a rich texture, complexity and just a hint of buttery creaminess.

The 2012 vintage of Gifft Chardonnay exhibits richness, depth and complexity, balanced by a lively acidity and an essential freshness. Featuring the gorgeous tropical fruit flavors that are the hallmark of Monterey Chardonnays, Gifft Chardonnay strikes the ideal balance between rich and refreshing.

The Soberanes Vineyard is the latest exciting joint venture between the Pisoni and Franscioni Families. The site features tightly spaced vines and is planted to 33 acres of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah and sits on the Santa Lucia Highlands Bench adjacent to the Garys' Vineyard. The clonal material planted in the loamy, rocky soil is very diverse and features over a dozen of the most renowned heritage selections from California and Burgundy in pursuit of the finest wine quality.

What this vineyard captures, more so than any other Pinot Noir site that we have tasted, is both power and elegance. Bright and forceful Bing cherries and dark berries along with the slightest hue of roasted coffee bean on the nose. Immediate and broad textured tannins cover the palate as flavors of black raspberries, licorice and black tea leaves unravel. Oak-inspired overtones of crispy charred marshmellows and fall spice with balance acids elongate a finish that reverbs for hours.

this wine was a big standout! Brian Loring is well known for his luscious, forward and high-scoring Pinot Noirs from Monterey, Russian River Valley and Santa Barbara County. That being said, if this white is any indication, he will become known for Chardonnays, too! Sourced from the Rosella’s Vineyard, the wine was rich and loaded in the mouth with flavor but still had balance and vibrancy.
