PINOT NOIR

Pinot Noir is a red wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. Pinot Noir grapes are grown around the world, mostly in the cooler regions, but the grape is chiefly associated with the Burgundy region of France. Other regions that have gained a reputation for Pinot Noir include the Willamette Valley of Oregon, the Carneros, Central Coast and Russian River AVAs of California, the Walker Bay wine region of South Africa, Tasmania and Yarra Valley in Australia and the Central Otago, Martinborough and Marlborough wine regions of New Zealand. Pinot Noir is also a primary variety used in sparkling wine production in Champagne and other wine regions. It is widely considered to produce some of the finest wines in the world, but is a difficult variety to cultivate and transform into wine. The grape's tendency to produce tightly packed clusters makes it susceptible to several viticultural hazards involving rot that require diligent canopy management. The thin-skins and low levels of phenolic compounds lends Pinot to producing mostly lightly colored, medium bodied low tannin wines that can often go through dumb phases with uneven and unpredictable aging. When young, wines made from Pinot Noir tend to have red fruit aromas of cherries, raspberries and strawberries. As the wines age, Pinots have the potential to develop vegetal and "barnyard" aromas that can contribute to the complexity of the wine.

    The 2013 A to Z Pinot Noir leads with aromas of cherries, raspberries, and blackberries, developing to iris, blueberries, strawberries and minerals. A beautiful attack has vibrant red fruit flavors and floral notes, then deepens with hints of blood orange and blueberry jam. Ripe tannins are balanced by perfect acidity and the mid-palate reveals spice, tobacco and earth notes adding richness and complexity. The finish is quite long which allows all the elements of the wine to come together and show the intrinsic balance and complexity of the 2013 Oregon vintage. WINERY NOTES

    The myriad of dark fruit and floral notes in this Pinot Noir come from the cool, windy Los Carneros American Viticultural Area (AVA) in the southern reaches of Napa Valley. Satsuma plum, blackberry, red rose and violet notes weave through the enticing aromas, mingled with warm nuances of vanilla and toasted oak from barrel aging. Silky, elegant flavors echo the aromas, adding blueberry and plum to the rich fruit complexity. You'll find this wine's lush flavors, bright acidity and fine tannins are perfectly balanced to complement a broad range of foods, from grilled salmon and chicken, to lamb and wild mushrooms.

    ANTONIO GALLONI'S VINOUS MEDIA 90 POINTS - "After extensive construction, work a fancy new tasting room and visitors' center has been completed at this strikingly scenic hilltop site, making Adelaida among the region’s most attractive spots for wine tasting. The quality, consistency and approachability of the wines has increased since 2012, when winemaker Jeremy Weintraub took the reins."

    "Ruby-red. Aromas of fresh dark berries, cherry and spicecake are complemented by subtle woodsmoke and dark chocolate nuances. Concentrated black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors become livelier with air, picking up a hint of candied flowers. Fine-grained tannins emerge slowly on a long, sappy finish that echoes the berry and spice notes. Pretty impressive for a Pinot from this region, which is hardly known for producing delicate wines."

    David Adelsheim and Ginny Adelsheim planted their first vineyards in Oregon's Willamette Valley back in 1972. Since producing their first commercial vintage in 1978, the Adelsheims have used sustainable farming practices and take great care to bring out the best in each of their unique vineyard sites. In the winery, they combine traditional and modern techniques, crafting wines in a style that centers on elegance, complexity and richness in flavor and texture.

    The Elizabeth's Reserve bottling is a "best of" blend, using only the best barrels in the cellar. With many wonderful lots representing different soil types, clones, site climates, fermenter sizes and barrel characteristics, winemaker Dave Paige pulls together a wine that truly reflects the vintage and character.

    This wine is both elegant and intense, offering layered aromas of red raspberries, fresh Oregon strawberries, brown spice and cedar. Aromas reflected on the palate are pure and elegant, it is exceptionally balanced with silky tannins and a persistent finish. This wine will pair beautifully with lamb, duck, grilled salmon and aged cheeses.

    With its broad array of origins and clones, this wine displays red aromas (candied cherry, pomegranate and raspberry) on the nose and the palate. In addition, one finds a light touch of brown spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, all-spice). True to Adelsheim's house style, it is elegantly textured with seamlessly integrated, silky, polished tannins. Pair it with salmon, ahi, veal, pork, poultry (think duck), beef or hearty vegetarian entrees.

    Adelsheim Vineyard began back in 1971 with Ginny and David Adelsheim purchasing 19 acres in beautiful Oregon countryside. They shared a dream with a handful of families that Oregon's climate and land could one day produce serious wines. A home was built, vines planted, and in 1978, the first commercial wines were produced. Over four decades, Adelsheim Vineyard grew up with Oregon's wine industry pioneering the way towards the future of wine production.

    WINE SPECTATOR 92 POINTS - "Lithe, supple, lively and expressive, layering boysenberry, pomegranate, floral and coffee notes on a sleek frame, with powdery tannins. Finishes with presence and persistence. Drink now through 2023."

    While he has become known for his insanely delicious Petite Sirahs from Paso Robles, winemaker Aaron Jackson has recently expanded his portfolio and added some new flavors! AEQUOREA - which means “of the sea” in Latin - is focused on single vineyard wines from extreme coastal vineyards amidst San Luis Obispo County. In addition to these wines, each year Aaron Jackson also produce the Seafarer Pinot Noir as a special cuvee that brings together the elements from each of his vineyards. The goal is to create a wine that is more about overall texture and depth than individual site expression.

    As always, Seafarer is the only vineyard blend Pinot Noir Aaron produces, bringing together fruit from all his coastal sites. The goal is to create a wine that is more about overall texture and depth than individual site expression. Based largely in the Stromsoe vineyard in Cayucos, along with Riven Rock (Cambria), Spanish Springs (Pismo Beach) and Derby West (San Simeon), the 2013 Seafarer is his favorite to date. The aromatics are intense - redolent of dried cranberry, red apple skin, white pepper, and Earl Grey tea. The palate is bright and vibrant, with a core of dark red fruit, uplifted spice, grated chocolate, roasted nuts, dried orange rind, and toasty oak. Only 225 cases produced!

    If you thought Revana was just a Napa Valley property, you were flat wrong! Less than a decade after he established his successful Napa Valley venture, Dr. Madaiah Revana set his sights on Oregon’s Willamette Valley. He fell in love with Pinot Noir and wanted to make Pinot Noir that would rival those from Burgundy. His search lead him to winemaker Lynn Penner-Ash, one of the most talented winemakers in Oregon, and a person Wine Spectator believes has "...the perfect blend of science, artistry and passion."

    Due to the transition of soil types from Volcanic to Sedimentary in the Revana Vineyard, the fruit tends to produce unique flavor profiles that stray slightly from what we have come to expect from the Dundee Hills. Pleasant earthiness is highlighted by aromas gushing with red fruit and cocoa nibs, culminating with a caress of sweet red plums. On the entrance, the Pinot Noir is delicate, and teases with red berry bramble, then explodes mid-palate with juicy intense fruit. The transition to the finish is refined, leaving beautiful flavors of red currants and terrior.

    Prismé is the truest expression of the Pinot noir grape. Anne Amie selects only their finest blocks of Pinot noir and gently press the grapes, liberating the free run juice, but not the color or tannins from the skins. It is then barrel-fermented, and aged on its lees in French oak barrels for 18 months. This structured white wine has a backbone of acidity, a voluptuous mid-palate and along, creamy finish. Prismé is named after the word prism - the splitting of white light into its corresponding colors. Anne Amie is doing precisely that in reverse, making a rich, textured white wine from Pinot noir.

    The Prismé starts with 100% Pinot noir free run juice that is settled and racked into barrels. It is entirely barrel-fermented in French oak puncheons; lees stirred, allowed partial malolactic fermentation (around 80%) and then aged on its lees for 18 months before bottling.

    The aromas is this wine begin with baked apples, fennel, vanilla bean, elderflower, cardamom, candied ginger, crème brulée, then moves to flavors of ripe pears, graham cracker, nutmeg, lemon meringue, and ripe fig, with a lingering finished laced with creamy acidity.

    The first wine that caught our attention from this Oregon stage producer was their Mueller-Thurgau; a white variety that is not often planted. But that wine was so clean and refreshing, we had to see what else was in their bag of tricks. Happily, we found their Willamette Valley Pinot Noir to be delicous, too! Anne Amie's estate and all vineyards they get fruit from are Salmon Safe and LIVE certified, which means they are dedicated to restoring and maintaining healthy watersheds for minimal impact on aquifers and wildlife.

    Thsi 2012 Anne Amie displays aromas of dark cherry, dusty road, orange peel, kirsch, cardamom, sweet tobacco, and dried rose petal. The flavors show sweet dark cherries, forest floor, anise, dark chocolate nibs, and chaim with a long, rich, and smooth finish.

    This vineyard is located a few miles from the Pacific Ocean, near the tiny town of Annapolis, and is farmed by Steve Campbell. At approximately 750 feet above sea level, it sits right at the boundary of the marine layer, ensuring that the cool, coastal climate delays ripening well beyond the warmer vineyards to the east. The fourteen-year-old vines grow on sandy, low-vigor Goldridge soil, which helps reduce yields to near two tons per acre.

    ANTONIO GALLONI 93 POINTS - "The 2014 Pinot Noir Campbell Ranch Vineyard is one of the more overt, fruit-driven wines in the lineup. The small berries here give the wine an intense, almost flamboyant sense of ripeness that stands out. Expressive floral notes round out the close. There is a directness and sense of immediacy to the Campbell Ranch that is compelling."

    Randy Peters and his father-in-law, Tom Mukaida, farm this vineyard outside of Sebastopol in western Sonoma County. The southern slopes of these hills form the northern edge of the Petaluma Gap, which rushes cool, marine air from the Pacific Ocean inland. The vines, a mix of Pommard and 777 planted twenty years ago, produce grapes that ripen unusually slow due to the oft-present morning fog.

    This site lies in the heart of the Green Valley appellation. Like many vineyards it was converted from an apple orchard a decade ago. Old timers have long known about the intense, fresh flavors in the crops that come from the area’s rolling hills. Owner and manager Ron Black had the foresight to plant his hillside very densely, in order to create more vine competition and lower yields that accentuate the combination of lushness and poise inherent to this site.

    ANTONIO GALLONI 93 POINTS - "The 2014 Pinot Noir Tina Marie Vineyard is one of the most expressive wines in the lineup. Intensely aromatic and layered, the 2014 fills out its frame with striking perfume and layers of deep, fleshy fruit. Bright saline notes add energy, while savory overtones add lift. This is a strong and very complete Pinot from Anthill Farms. The whole clusters are evident, but not obtrusive."

    This wine just sings classic Oregon Pinot Noir with delicate floral notes melding with ripe cherry and raspberry wrapped in a light robe of baking spices. The wine has a rich hued Burgundy color with a sparkling brilliance and great clarity. The wine opens with bright, clean flavors of black cherry and forest berries. The palate adds complexities of clove and nutmeg oak spice and hints of earthy tertiary flavors coming through. The long, elegant finish is complimented by Argyle's signature silky tannins. This is a wine that begs to be drunk now, but with self-control will pay the dividends of complexity and greater depth with aging.

    WINE SPECTATOR 90 POINTS - "Crisp and sleek, this shows a tart edge to its red berry and cinnamon flavors, gliding smoothly against peppery tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2019. 6,000 cases made."

    ROBERT PARKER 94 POINTS - "It sounds like a broken record, but Mark Aubert is certainly one of a handful of California's finest practitioners of Burgundy-styled, classic California Chardonnays. He's at the top of the pyramid for these extraordinary wines, and he's not that far behind when it comes to Burgundian-styled, rich, impressive Pinot Noirs as well. Of course, he has his own winery, and continues to acquire high-quality, cool-climate sites for his Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, with Cix, Eastside, Lauren Estate and Sugar Shack Estate all now part of Aubert's estate vineyards. Mark Aubert had an impressive resume long before he became this famous, mentored by Helen Turley when he was at Peter Michael, and from there spending impressive tenures at Colgin and Tom Futo's winery before he went off bound for glory. I am a big buyer of these wines every year, and often serve the wines to strangers at charity events. They are consistently the favorites that people taste."

    "As for the 2014 Pinot Noir UV, this wine comes two-thirds from the Calera clone of Pinot Noir and the rest from a Vosne-Romanee clone (which we all know, but no one's saying, probably emanated from the famous Domaine de la Romanee Conti estate). Lots of soft strawberry, sweet cherry and blueberry notes emerge from this wine, giving it a Cote de Nuits-like character. Slightly lighter than the Ritchie, feminine, fragrant, and beautifully round and juicy, this wine should drink well young and last ten or more years."

    Winemaker's Notes - "Stemming from a rigorous selection of some of my best Estate Grown cuvees, along with aggressive blending of barrels from some of the most amazing vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills, this bottling is now the focal point of my effort to create a true flagship wine for distribution throughout the US. Since 1/3 of the wine hails from my vineyard, you do get a little suggestion of Ocean's Ghost, but with the contribution from vineyards further west in the appellation, you also get a jolt of dark power; baked black fruits and cherries with gobs of earth and spice. Calling it complex does not do it justice. After it's open for a while, the oak comes together with the fruit, creating a nice mocha quality, and the mouth feel turns plush with a succulent viscosity. "

    Notes from Bryan Babcock - Why the name Ocean's Ghost for this cuvee? All of the soils on my ranch are the remnants of an ancient sea. From the deep sandy loams in our lower vineyards, to the shallow decomposed sandstone on TOP CREAM'S bench, evidence of the ocean's touch is everywhere. At various points above our ranch, on steeper hills, in places where erosion has taken away the skin of the mountain, you can see the pitch-white outcroppings of pure diatomaceous earth. It is no coincidence that some of the world's largest diatomaceous deposits are mined just outside of Lompoc. In digging around on our hillsides, I have not found too many arrowheads, but I have come across little gravelly deposits, the likes of which look like fractured seashells. The soil in Ocean's Ghost is very similar to that in Top Cream. The block, however, is situated on our westernmost mesa that is completely exposed to the daily ocean breeze, making it perfect for Pinot Noir. Beginning eons ago, the ubiquitous influence of the ocean continues.

    ROBERT PARKER 94 POINTS - "The star of the lineup is the 2014 Pinot Noir Ocean's Ghost, and this beauty comes from two adjacent parcels located off Highway 246 in the Sta. Rita Hills. It was completely destemmed and aged in 40% new French oak. Notes of red plums, wild strawberries, spice and lots of floral characteristics all emerge from this richly textured, mouthfilling and lengthy Pinot Noir that will put a smile on anyone’s face over the coming 7-8 years. My notes finished with 'I like it!'"

    ANTONIO GALLONI 93 POINTS - "Brian Babcock makes bold, racy wines from his estate vineyard on Route 246 as well as handful of top sites throughout the Sta. Rita Hills. The wines are generally fruit-forward and approachable, which makes them easy to appreciate pretty much right out of the gate."

    "The 2014 Pinot Noir Oceans Ghost, from Babcock's estate vineyard, is a classic Sta. Rita Hills Pinot rich in fruit and extract. Dark red cherry, plum, cloves, lavender and menthol give the wine its supple, fleshy personality. The round, creamy finish only adds to the wine's considerable appeal."
