Foyt Family Wines Sonoma County No. 61 Pinot Noir 2016, California

Ruby in color medium-plus intensity and the wide reddish rim.

Strong nose of bing cherries, earth, strawberries, spices, vegetables, barnyard, light alcohol, black pepper and licorice.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with bing cherries, red candy, light wood, earth, strawberries, light vegetables, dark coffee, herbs, tobacco leaf, spices, graphite and black pepper.

Medium plus on the finish with soft tannins and cherries.

This is a nice and easy drinking Pinot Noir from Sonoma County. Well balanced with a nice tang and a spicy finish. Showing mild complexity and a nice mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and good by itself. A nice wine to sip on by the pool. Very tasty and a good quality wine.

I gave it a light chill and paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Cuvée Alyce Hansel Family Vineyards Pinot Noir 2017

Great Sonoma Pinot, I really enjoyed this but it is a day two wine. On day one there were loads of wonderful flavours but some high acidity. On day two this has smoothed out and is delicious, the palate is full of sweet fruit, cinnamon, earth and cola with a long smokey and new oak finish. The rich smokey flavour is very apparent and of course this is the 2017 vintage, could be in my mind but is it possible that the fires had an influence? Either way this is great. — 4 days ago

Beautiful wine with pure fruit and not a hint of being over the hill (which I slightly expected). Perfect time to drink this and well paired with roasted chicken, black rice, and butternut squash. — 10 days ago

This is an easy-drinking Pinot Noir from Russian River Valley. Light and interesting with mild complexity and a nice mouthfeel. Soft and elegant with a tangy finish.

This Single Vineyard is good right out of the bottle. Spicy on the finish with nice structure.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a cheese plate and crackers, by the pool.

Estate Grown Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2012

Partnership w/Jim Clendenen at Au Bon Climat. Barbara Barham & Richard Mendelsohn planted 5 acres of Pinot on Lala Panzi Ranch in the RRV. They had similar visions on Pinot’s & thus led to this partnership. Aged in predominately new Allier & Vosges wood. Aromas of berry fruits with dusty earthy nose. On the palate, berry flavors come forth with hints of tea & spice. Medium+ length, fine tannins, ending with earthy mushroom character, it was good, lost its luster, at its prime now! — 7 days ago

Age has not soften the fruit at all. Acid is still strong and the aromatics are pleasing with just a tad of creaminess. Black cherries and a hint of spice. Other than that not much going on. Many yrs of life I predict given this was a 07 — 3 days ago

Drink it all in one day. Second day it fell apart.


Cuvée Natalie Silver Belt Vineyard Pinot Noir 2008

Perhaps the food and setting enhanced the experience, but this was gorgeous and in a great drinking window. Beautiful nose and just a touch of sweetness, but not over the top. — 9 days ago

Dairyman Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Dairyman Vineyard sits in the southern alluvial plains of the Russian River Valley near the ocean, a region where cooling fog comes in through the Petaluma Gap in the morning and once again in the evening. Bright Ruby with aromas of ripe berries and smoky spice notes. On the palate flavors of raspberry, black cherries and currents, herb, cedar and cacao. Smooth fine tannins, soft long finish with fresh acidity, great structure. Wow! A Fav! — a day ago
