Robert ParkerWe are excited to share with you that all of our wines recently received 90+ points by Robert Parker of the Wine Advocate

2015 Chardonnay
95+ POINTS

“Opening with expressive notes of ripe apricots, pink grapefruit and guava, the 2015 Chardonnay reveals underlying baker’s yeast, marzipan and butterscotch hints. Medium to full-bodied with a gorgeous satiny texture and wonderful intensity of stone fruit and citrus flavors, it delivers a lot of layers in the mouth with a long, lively finish sporting savory and mineral notes. Benchmark Russian River Chardonnay.”

 

2015 Pinot Noir
92 POINTS

“The pale to medium ruby colored 2015 Pinot Noir opens with fragrant floral notes of lavender and rose hips over a core of crushed red currants, raspberry leaves and Bing cherries, plus forest floor, game and garrigue hints. Medium-bodied with a great intensity of perfumed red berry and earth flavors, it has a great line of acidity; finely grained tannins carry the multi-layers to a long finish.”

 

2015 Frost Ranch Pinot Noir- SOLD OUT
94 POINTS

“Pale to medium ruby colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Frost Ranch gives an abundance of earthy/gamey notes to begin, revealing forest floor, moss covered bark and dusty earth over a core of mulberries, cranberry preserves and kirsch with a waft of potpourri. The medium-bodied palate delivers a great intensity of complex red berry preserves and earth layers with wonderfully silken-textured tannins and great vivacity, finishing long.”

  

2015 Goddard Ranch Pinot Noir
90 POINTS

“The 2015 Pinot Noir Goddard Ranch has a medium to deep ruby-purple color and opens with notes of black cherries, black raspberries and mulberries with suggestions of cinnamon stick, dusty earth, dried leaves and Provence herbs. The medium to full-bodied palate offers mouth-filling dried berry notes with firm, chewy tannins and a crisp acid line, finishing with raisiny nuances.”

2012 Zinfandel

2014 Zinfandel
92 POINTS

“Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Zinfandel delivers notes of baked plums and blueberry pie with hints of dark chocolate, spice cake and dates. Full bodied, voluptuously fruited and with a gorgeous velvety texture, if offers load of baked berry and spice layers, finishing very long.”

 2012 Petite Sirah

2014 Petite Sirah
93+ POINTS

“Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Petite Sirah has a beguiling nose of crushed black berries and blueberries, violets, dark chocolate and licorice with a waft of exotic spices. Full-bodied, rich and seductive in the mouth, while it possesses great concentration, this is no high-octane behemoth, but a beautifully styled expression of the grape with plenty of depth and harmony.”
