VALERIE'S VINEYARD 11 PN SONOMA CARNEROS

PINOT REPORT 92 POINTS - "Ninth vintage. Aged 18 months in French oak barrels. Moderately light deep red color in the glass. Rather exotically scented, offering aromas of strawberry, cherry, briar, white pepper, rose hips tea and seasoned oak. Mid weight core of tasteful strawberry, raspberry and cherry fruits with a bombastic cherry finish. Seamless, with soft, tame tannins and balancing acidity. Spend some time with this wine and you will discover plenty of spicy nuances come and go. Quite elegant and easy to drink now but will age. 14.1% alc., 90 cases"

TASTING PANEL MAGAZINE 90 POINTS - "Smooth and bright with juicy raspberry and cherry fruit; tangy and balanced with elegant style and good length."

A single wine sourced from a 1-acre vineyard in Sonoma Carneros. The vineyard is a group managed affair, the result of a partnership between Sonoma County public relations person Michael Coats, his wife Valerie, her parents Chuck and Jerry Hanson, and Valerieís sister, Vicki Brown. Each of the partners share equally in the work of the vineyard which is organically farmed and overseen by viticulturist Phil Cotourri. The vineyard was planted in 2000 to a clone from a secret Russian River Valley source. The wine is crafted by B.R. Cohnís Winery winemaker, Tom Montgomery. Limited Sonoma Valley and New York restaurant distribution. I have enjoyed many vintages of this wine. Visit the website at www.valeriesvineyard.com

The 9th vintage, the 2011 Valerie's Vineyard Pinot Noir continues where each previous vintage left off, incredible! Valerie's one-acre Carneros vineyard is really coming of age and we think that vintage to vintage this one is another winner. The winemaking and attention to detail has never been better. They had solid success with the 2009 which received great press scoring 90 points in the Pinot Report, Pinot File and from Burghound.

There were only 90 cases produced of the 2011 vintage so get this while you can!
