Walter Hansel North Slope Pinot Noir 2015From Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 10/28/16, issue 227: "100% Dijon clone 115, also performed spectacularly, no doubt because of the extremely tiny yields. This wine has a dense purple color, a gorgeously compelling nose of forest floor, spring flowers, blue, red and black fruits, followed by a full-bodied, layered and concentrated Pinot Noir that is as light as a ballerina on the palate, but at the same time, intense and rich. The finish just goes on and on. Drink it over the next decade or more." 810 cases produced.
O'Shaughnessy Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015Winery Notes: The 2015 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is the marriage of our estate properties on Howell Mountain and Mount Veeder. This classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon captures the essence of the vintage with its lively bouquet of violets, sandalwood, wild plum and kirsch. The palate is dense and focused with integrated tannins and layers of boysenberry, crème de cassis, bittersweet chocolate and tobacco. This is a wine that immediately impresses and will have a long life in the cellar.
Bevan Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay 2016Winery Note: Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay is our consistent stunner. The long, even-growing season in 2016 allowed us to leave the fruit on the vine longer than we normally do. This, combined with the fact that we only got 1.6 tons per acre, allowed the fruit to develop incredibly thick skins, which equates to power and richness. The nose is more Cote du Beaune than any Chardonnay we have ever made, but the mouth is all California. It is oily and layered. Fruit dominates, but there is a minerality to it that also plays a major role. There is also a slight green tint to the wine as we aggressively fought to limit oxygen exposure, so we could capture as much of the wines verve as possible. You can drink her now or wait for five to seven years and she will still be a beauty.
Louis Sipp Osterberg Grand Cru Gewürztraminer 2010Winery NotesThis Gewurztraminer 2010 offers a fine and airy nose, of great purity. In the mouth, its richness of attack is immediately balanced by a beautiful frame of freshness typical of the vintage 2010, which confers finesse and length. This mouthfeel is characteristic of Osterberg, a terroir that is particularly successful with Gewurztraminer. A great wine of guard! It is suitable for all rich dishes with character: foie gras, smoked fish, fish sauce, spicy cuisine.
Baldassari Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2016Winery Notes: We source our grapes from the Sonoma Coast Viticulture Area. The Sonoma Coast is one of California's best cool climate growing regions. The foggy mornings, chilly evenings and generally cooler temperatures allow heat sensitive varieties like Chardonnay to thrive and develop intense varietal character. This wine has only partial Malolactic Fermentation and the flavors reflect the area where it is grown. Exotic fruit and texture focused around a juicy core of juicy acidity make this wine both delicious and intense in varietal character.
