mouth feel. The complex bouquet includes key lime, lemon peel, peaches and apricots. The crisp tartness complements the wine’s natural viscosity and creates balance and elegance. This wine is extremely versatile with food. It's textured and plush enough to compliment rich seafood like lobster, crab and scallops, but also has a crisp acidity and fruit flavors that can pair nicely with more diverse flavors like grilled pork tenderloin with a fresh apple reduction sauce.

CASTALIA 11 PN ROCHIOLI

Terry Bering is the cellarmaster for Rochioli Vineyards. When he isn't busting his hump helping out the Rochioli family produce fantastic wines, Terry works on his own Pinot Noir Project! Read More...
Terry makes flavorful, aromatic, and wonderfully nuanced wines that do justice to his Rochioli vineyard source.

In 2011 the crop yields were small, and the weather was cold. Many other producers produced the same yields and were greeted with diluted wines. But since Terry kept the yields small, those grape clusters were able to fully mature, and the resulting is a thing of beauty! The 2011 vintage has a PH of 3.55 (perfect). Full of dark fruit with a touch of cranberry on the finish, it is framed with a subtle tannin structure. All point to a wine that should age very well; only 300 cases were produced!

from this iconic region, and they always seem to be one of the best Pinots we taste all year! Yields are small, which means production is small, but that also means better wine! The wine possesses a brilliant, dark rose color, and pure aromas of fresh cherry, raspberry, sassafras, rose petal, and orange peels draw you in. Layered, juicy red fruits such as sour cherry, damson, pure raspberry, cranberry, and crisp red apple skin caress the palate. Silky fine texture, and always lively, poised, and mouth watering, this should drink well into the end of this decade!

River Valley, creating the perfect climate to nurture fruit to ideal ripeness. A discrete group of select clones and growing areas combine to produce the Les Brumeux blend. The Wente clone benefits from the warmth of the northernmost vineyard along Westside Road and contributes an oily texture and tropical notes. The Rued clone, grown in the cool climate of Green Valley, brings beautiful perfume and floral notes to the wine. The Heritage clone provides notes of pear and citrus from a vineyard cultivated in the Goldridge sandy loam along Vine Hill Road in Sebastopol.

Crisp and flinty, this wine opens with abundant layers of peach, orange blossom, citrus and subtle notes of pineapple. These fruit-dominated aromas slowly give way to floral and mineral notes with citrus zest. Upon entry, beautiful creaminess and stone fruits evolve into warm, toasty oak with an oily texture that coats the entire palate. The wonderfully bright and lively acidity keeps the mouthfeel balanced and leads to a mouthwatering and refreshing finish.

of Cabernet producers dabbling in Pinot noir, one taste left us wanting seconds, thirds and fourths! Now that the 2012 has dropped, it is every bit as good as its predecessors. En Route owns two fantastic Pinot Noir properties: Graton Vineyard and the highly-esteemed Amber Ridge Vineyard! Both vineyards are planted to several different clones for added complexity and nuances.

The 2012 EnRoute Pinot Noir reveals beautiful aromatics of cherry, raspberry, and perfume with subtle floral and mineral notes, baking spices and toasted vanilla. On the palate, the wine enters with a juicy, red fruit presence and progresses into Pinot Noir’s hallmark silky, coating tannins. The finish is elegant and mouthwatering as the natural acidity leaves you refreshed and wanting more.

Floodgate, Bacigalupi and McIntyre are in the slightly warmer Middle Reach subdivision, which is in closer proximity to the river. Stephens, Galante and Hallberg are all within the boundaries of the much colder Green Valley sub-appellation where the vines are exposed to more extreme and much cooler conditions.

This wine exudes complex aromas of sour cherry compote, candied ginger,cedar, tangerine zest, black pepper and sweet cherry wood followed by anintriguing flavor profile of wild berry preserves, hibiscus, pomegranate liqueurand plum chutney. Incredibly balanced and nicely nuanced, the finish offersvelvety tannins and bright, crisp acidity.

Gamba Vineyards is a small, family owned vineyard and winery business in Sonoma County, California. The 100+ year-old 27.5 acre Gamba Estate Vineyard parcel rests on the Eastern Read More...
edge of the beautiful Russian River Valley Appellation, on gently rolling benchland above the valley floor. Planted to Zinfandel in 1900, the Gamba Estate Vineyard consists primarily of Old Vine Zinfandel, as well as small separate blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon. With ideal Southern exposure, the vineyard is bathed in sunlight during the growing season. On average the yield is small, in part due to nature, but also by design-approximately one half ton, and occasionally up to one ton per acre is harvested, depending on the vigor of vineyard block and severity of pruning.
HANSEL 11 PN SOUTH SLOPE

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "I was quite taken with the wines I tasted with proprietor Stephen Hansel earlier this year. In particular, Read More...
the 2010 Chardonnays have turned out far better than I had expected. A year prior, the wines were heavy and clunky. Today, they are complete and beautifully balanced to a degree that is surprising. According to Hansel, in 2010 the Pinots were less affected by the heat spikes that year than the Chardonnays, echoing a common refrain among growers. As was the case throughout California, 2011 was an exceptionally long and cold growing season. Hansel lost the fruit for the Meadows bottling, a casualty of the October rains. At the risk of sounding repetitive, it is impossible not to realize how exceedingly fairly priced these wines are in today’s market. Stylistically, the Hansel Chardonnays show the richness from stirring of the lees and the use of 40-60% new oak. The Pinots are made from fully destemmed fruit and also tend towards the bolder side of things. Hansel reported that sugars were about a degree lower in 2011, especially for the Chardonnays. Consequently, he gave the Chardonnays a little less new oak than normal, but at the same time increased lees stirring to give the wines a bit more body. Ripeness of the Pinots was more consistent across the two vintages.

"In 2011, the Pinot Noir South Slope is richer and bigger than the North Slope, the exact opposite of 2010. A blast of dark red fruit hits the palate, followed by game, tobacco, incense, licorice and smoke. A big, broad-shouldered wine in this vintage, the 2011 needs another 6-12 months to settle down. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020."
