2019 Old Federal Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
2019 Hogan’s Run Vineyard Reserve Pinot Noir

94 pts - The Pinot File

A very complex nose of earth, black raspberry, blackest cherry, herb garden and a hint of oak leads off. Hearty in a mid-weight plus style, with mouth filling and compelling dark cherry and berry flavors. Very long in the mouth through the cherry-laced finish. – R.G.

2019 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

92 pts - The Pinot File

Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Aromas of black cherry, rose petal and Doublemint gum lead the way. Light to mid-weight in style and highly agreeable with plenty of black cherry flavor saturating the midpalate and finish. Perfect harmony insures the wine’s allure at the dinner table – R.G.

2021 Rowe Family Vineyard Rosé of Pinot Noir
2019 Dalton Vineyard Marsanne-Roussanne

91 pts - Decanter

A delightful blend of 75% Marsanne and 25% Roussanne from a well-established, higher-elevation vineyard (460m) in the Sierra Foothills. Opens with buttery brioche aromas followed by ripe apple, pear and concentrated honeyed notes. Barrel fermentation and lees ageing add to the creamy layers, smooth texture and enduring richness. – S.L.

90 pts - Wine Enthusiast

Deep, layered and rich in texture, this full-bodied wine is not overtly fruity or oaky, but delivers plenty of flint and mineral aromas, white-pepper and peach-skin flavors. It was fermented in neutral barrels and aged on the lees, adding to its creamy mouthfeel. – J.G.

2018 Hogan’s Run Vineyard Reserve Pinot Noir

95 pts - The Real Review

Medium-full red with a tinge of purple, the bouquet is spicy and quite complex, showing spot-on ripeness and some foresty dried-herb, undergrowth notes, oak neatly understated. A hint of mushroom. It's intense and quite powerful, with a long lingering aftertaste and soft, fine-grained tannins. A superbly turned-out pinot, drinking beautifully right now. - H.H.

93 pts - The Pinot File

Dark cherry aromas are embellished with notes of oak-driven mocha and perfumery red rose petal. More richness of flavor than the Russian River Valley bottling in a middleweight style. Intense and provocative black cherry and black raspberry fruit flavors that really wake up the palate. Oak shows less presence on the palate. Gentle tannins make for easy approachability but a few years in the cellar would pay dividends. The finish is quite lengthy as befits a reserve wine. – R.G.

2018 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

92 pts - The Pinot File

Light garnet color in the glass. Enticing aromas of black cherry, cola and baking spices. The wine is bursting with cherry goodness in a mid-weight style with an added compliment of purple berry fruits and a shadow of oak. The tannins are very suave and the overall impression is brightness and balance. A classic Russian River Valley AVA Pinot Noir. – R.G.

This is a very solid wine featuring blackest cherry and black raspberry fruits that are married perfectly with the tannins and acidity. Peaking over time in the glass, this lovely wine has a lavish finish replete with fresh dark fruits that hang on – R.G.

91 pts - Wine Enthusiast

Fleshy and fruity, with a depth of black tea and dried herb, this light, bright and delicate wine shows good integration of both tannin and oak. The fruit is a mix of blood orange and wild strawberry, flecked in cardamom and white pepper. – V.B.

2019 O’Sullivan Family Vineyard Rosé of Pinot Noir
2018 Dalton Vineyard Marsanne-Roussanne
2016 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

91 pts - Wine Enthusiast

Concentrated, spicy and lingering in dark berry, white pepper and cardamom, this wine is juicy and well-integrated, with a fruit-forward style. It finishes in black tea and earthy forest notes that impress against the balanced richness. – V.B.

Moderate garnet color in the glass. Aromas of earth-dusted Bing cherry and cola. Discreetly concentrated spiced black cherry goodness with a hint of tobacco oak in the background. Silky and refined on the palate, with gentle tannins and a lengthy, cherry-laden finish. This wine is not a blockbuster, but is more in line with what most prefer in a Pinot Noir. Even better when tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. –RG

2015 Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon
2016 Reserve Pinot Noir
2016 Marsanne/Roussanne White Wine Blend

92 pts - Wine Enthusiast

Great concentration, full body and an almost thick texture make a big statement in this no-holds-barred wine that was barrel-fermented in old barrels that don’t add oaky flavors. It smells like honey, cream and vanilla, tastes nutty and buttery and coats the palate with a richness that continues to linger even after the last sip. – J.G.

Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Nicely appointed aromas of Montmorency cherry, spice and complimentary oak.

2013 Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc
2013 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

90 pts - Wine Enthusiast

A small-production Pinot that’s earthy in just-picked strawberry, this offers light color and smooth, soft, silky tannins that have integrated well, though the wine remains young and fresh in the glass. It becomes weightier on the finish, expressing just the right amount of oak. -V.B.
