Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2010

Superbe Pinot de CA au style Bourguignon, belle surprise en suivant tous ces beaux Bourgognes, du fruit à revendre, ne faisait pas son age.

Very nice Pinot from CA, has a Burgundy feel and texture to it, lots of fruit, well balanced, not even showing his age, very classy. 91-92

Drank on 2nd day. Some buttery notes surprised me. Oak had faded. Still good but not great — 13 hours ago

Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2019

This wine was fun and delicious. Green apples and melons stood out on the palate. Definitely an enjoyable easy drinking wine. Paired well with charcuterie. — 14 days ago

Russian River Valley Syrah 2016

The wife and I did a fun Syrah blind tasting with the coravin. We ranked the wines exactly the same. I feel like a Modus Operandi fanboy, but their wines really do perform well in these blind tastings. #1 Modus Operandi 2018 Caldwell Vineyard Syrah #2 Dumol 2016 Wild Mountainside Russian River Valley Syrah # 3 Kimsey 2017 Syrah. The MO and DuMol were much better than the Kimsey. I was really disappointed in the Kimsey. It just wasn’t there. Since DuMol is tagged here, the nose had dark fruits and a bit of funk. Flavors were nice, and the finish lingered a bit, but not as long as I would have liked. Score is for the DuMol. — 14 days ago

Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2016

Deep Ruby, complex, yet delicate with aromas of dark fruits, spice and earthy notes. On the palate flavors of plum and cherry with smoky oak, pepper and cacao wrapped in generous acidity. Fine sweet tannins, long finish, great structure ending with fruit, cedar, spice and slight earthy tones. Nice! — 15 days ago

Cardinal Rule

Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2014

Thin and uninteresting at first , but after just half an hour of decanting this wine blossoms into something quite interesting. Another 30 minutes in the decanter brings very nice Russian River fruity and flowery aromas and flavors—strawberry and earth, gentle tannins and balanced acidity. Quite an improvement from the last bottle I tried four years ago. Enjoyed the 2014 vintage with USDA Prime New York steak. — 5 days ago

Such a smashing rendition of a SB. I can’t think of anything else quite like this on the market today.
The acidity is relaxing, suggesting that you should consider consuming these now.

Enjoyed a bottle of 18 last night. In the zone as we speak. I tend to agree with you. Not getting any better.

Amber Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019

Good but I expected more from the higher price point. Without tasting side by side it’s hard to say if this is any different although maybe fruitier? Than the base level. Not sure it’s worth it especially with other better options at this price. — 6 hours ago
