Estate Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2016

Power Outage on Valentine’s Day. We are f’ed. But very romantic. A great estate wine! Low % plenty of acid. Blend of red berries. Now power back on at 7:52. Quite subtle may be Raspberry. The best US Estate wine I have had so far! — 8 months ago

Green Ranch Riesling 2016

This is the Green Ranch riesling. Really nice wine - reminds me of a good vintage Alsatian riesling. I bet it will age very well. — 2 years ago

Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2017

A ton of fruit needs to settle down. Not a long finish right now. No cherry at all very dark overripe raspberry touch of cassis in a Pinot? 13.9%! A good wine but to rich for me. — 5 months ago

777 Clone Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2016

Fun stuff just 75 cases. Alan bottled 3 different clones from one single vineyard and made them the same way. This is the first - 777 is dark cherry driven has a sour blackberry undertow and a hint of earth. Next I post on the Pommard Clone! — 8 months ago

Saltonstall Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

New to me. Excellent savory Pinot. Low %. Great balance and stance. Cherry and rocks. Very well made in a style which leans on the Burgundian way with CA fruit. A winery to watch! Their Riesling and Gewürztraminer are also real standouts. Tasting room is in Healdsburg. — 10 months ago

75 cases Pommard clone. Quite fruit driven and plummy. More California in style and 14%. Not my style but well made. Has mandarine components - limited acidity. From Alan’s experiment bottling different clones from the same vineyard in different bottles. — 8 months ago
