Ryan Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

The namesake of my brother, this was my first sampling of the Ryan Vineyard. It was outstanding! Through August, this is easily in my top 3 bottles so far this year! — 7 days ago

Williams Selyem

Peay Vineyard Pinot Noir 2008

First Peay from the WS portfolio and truly enjoyable. Sweet rhubarb and cherry with earthy spices. First of a 2008 pairing from top wineries, and I think it bested the Calera. — 3 years ago

Failla

Hirsch Vineyard Pinot Noir

Couldn't find entry, logging Stella Sonoma Coast Pinot 2017 here: 225 and Calera clones. Elevated acidity, med tannins. Cola nuts, faint herbs, red plums, blackberry, med+/elevated concentration, overripe strawberry, black tea bag, lavender, tomato, stony characters. ~13% abv. 2017 was super hot in Sonoma, >100 degree heat spikes in June-July cause vines to shut down, rapid ripening more akin to Oregon of erratic growing season (whereas usually California boasts of constant long growing season). Gravel loam soil. 10-40% whole cluster, hand punchdowns, stem inclusion. Foot treaded. WC raises pH as high acid -> more stem inclusion to balance the pH. Failla picks on pH at ~23-24 Brix which would be a bit too high. — a day ago

Domaine de la Côte

Bloom's Field Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2013

Pale ruby color. Expressive nose of rose petals, potpourri, leather, cherries, spices, and herbs from stem inclusion. Beautiful balance evident on the palate which cranberry and bitter cherry accompanied by dusty tannins and only 12.5% ABV. Made from a lot planted to Calera and Mt. Eden cloneswith 90% whole cluster inclusion. $80. — 3 years ago

Like a flabby-ish Calera single vineyard. Killler value for $5 at gross out. — 2 years ago
