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.

BRIGGS 13 PN RRV
$39.95
Quantity

The Russian River Valley has established itself as one of the premier locations for Pinot Noir in the world and accounts for nearly 20% of all the Pinot Noir plantings in California. Read More...
The characteristically cool climate, which is affected by fog generated by the valley's proximity to the Pacific Ocean, makes it a perfect site to grow these fickle grapes. The fruit for this vintage comes from the Dutton-Lorenzo Vineyard which lies to the south of Forestville in the very cool Green Valley of the Russian River Valley AVA. This area normally sees summer fog that burns off late which allows the grapes to thrive while picking up extra complexity from the Goldridge sandy loam soil.

This is quintessential Russian River Valley Pinot Noir and shows off its true Burgundy character. Upfront effusive aromas of Bing cherry, raspberry, pie crust and pine needles make the bouquet intoxicating. It is elegant and plush on the mouth feel with a mélange of red fruits and toast. The finish is long and lingers for a while which makes you want to take another sip.
CASTALIA 13 PN ROCHIOLI
$54.95
Quantity

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.

The 2013 vintage produced 370 cases. The wine was kept for 15 months in oak, 25% new, all French. This has given the wine a much softer feel at release. As always the wine is 100% from the Rochioli vineyards. The Flad Vinyard was planted to the West Block Clone back in the late 1980s and also from the River Block, a West Block clone planted at the same time. These blocks give Castalia its special character. The rest of the wine is from Dijon clones 777,115 and 667 from three different vinyards. This wine should age for at least ten years and be in it’s prime in from 4 to 7 years. Castalia Pinot Noir possesses the full-bodied complexity and subtle cherry essence that are so typical of the finest Russian River Pinot Noirs.

there was no malolactic fermentation. Intensely perfuned yet quite brisk on opening, this shows textbook white peach, honeysuckle, lemongrass and nectarine.

ROBERT PARKER 92 POINTS - "As I have written in the past, this is a beautiful partnership between owner Kerry Murphy and the brilliant winemaker Andy Smith. Approaching its 20th anniversary, the breadth of high-quality, complex Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs as well as a Viognier and Syrahs they have consistently produced is stunning."

"The 2012 Viognier Lia (a 230-case cuvée of 100% Viogner) was aged in larger French hogsheads with no malolactic and only 20% new oak. The vines were 14 years of age in 2012. It reveals that steely, wet pebbly, gravelly character that adds a complex nuance to the honeysuckle, peach and apricot fruit. This floral, medium-bodied, steely beauty can be enjoyed over the next 3-4 years."

DuMol's Russian River Valley Chardonnay is comprised of fruit from seven prestigious vineyards, including their Estate Vineyards, Dutton Ranch, Heintz, Hyde, Ritchie, and Lorenzo. Read More...
Hand harvested grapes were sorted in the vineyards then whole-cluster pressed. Barrel fermented with native yeasts and native malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged for 11 months in 35% new French oak.

This is a wine that can be enjoyed now for its citrus and grapefruit intensity or aged for five to six years to allow the natural hazelnut/truffle characters to emerge. With time in the glass a lovely beeswax/honeyed quality comes forth quich nicely offsets the wine's inherent dry, precise structure. Youthful aromas of sea shells, honeydew melon, grapefruit, lilies, and white peach develop in the glass. On the palate, lime sherbet, slate, and mineral are constantly appearing. The finish is intensely mouthwatering, as honey and lemon richness linger.

DUTTON GOLDFIELD 13 PN DUTTON

WINEMAKERS NOTE'S- "With its tiny crop and unusually cool summer, the 2011 vintage gave us an extraordinarily fresh and sleek Dutton Ranch Pinot. Though Read More...
the fundamental bright berry core and silky Green Valley tannins are always part and parcel of this wine, there is a particularly vivid aromatic freshness this year, which carries through in its bright acid and low alcohol in the mouth. Red berries combined with black cherry fruit in the nose is underlain with candied rhubarb and a hint of sandalwood and cinnamon. In the mouth, the cherry flavors are carried through on the wonderfully fine tannins--like warm cherry vanilla ice cream in a glass. The finish is exceptionally lengthy, and serves up the accompanying sweet berry cream pie. With our stellar salmon season this year, we like to use a bit in our marinade to make the pairing even more ideal. But don't limit yourself. A beauty of this wine is the boundless possibilities, from herb crusted poultry to grilled fish to slices of goat Gouda. Production: 2,486 cases."

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 2013 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.

Winery's Notes: "Tasting our way through each barrel of newly fermented Syrah, it was clear that 2012 was going to be a tremendous year for this variety. Atoosa’s vineyard Read More...
caught our attention early and we felt it was time to let this one shine almost on its own since it fits so perfectly between the boisterous Kalen’s Big Boy blend and the darkly serious Las Madres vineyard designate. That is a long way of saying we love it and want to share a few cases with you… hence our 2012 Barrel Climber Syrah!

"Gorgeously aromatic with suggestions of framboise, black fruit, pepper and blue flowers, the nearly impenetrable electric purple color may lead you to believe it is a monster, but not so! Alcohol levels are firmly in check and the balance and structure suggest this wine has a long life ahead. If you choose to pop one open sooner rather than later, decant for an hour or two, or drink over several days for maximum enjoyment. We can't seem to help ourselves and are reaching for the bottles already!"

This vintage brings together fruit from some amazing Russian River Valley vineyards with a number of sites new to the Gary Farrell cellar. They anchor the blend with the naturally Read More...
balanced character of Westside Farms, while fruit from Rochioli Vineyard brings great concentration and structure. Among the new sources is Pellegrini’s 65-acre Olivet Lane vineyard featuring the Wente clone, which adds nice citrus tones and excellent acidity. And just north of Rochioli- Allen, the Bacigalupi Goddard Ranch site brings intriguing floral tones and stone fruit character.

Enticing aromas of stonefruit, honeysuckle and lemongrass fill the glass, followed by a flavor profile ofexceptional intensity and vibrant acidity, balanced by a rich, creamy texture thatcomes from extended lees stirring during malolactic fermentation. This wine expresses pure, unadulterated Russian River Chardonnay intermingled withdistinctive cool-climate notes such as lemon oil, citrus peel, honey, lime andexcellent acidity.
