2014 Patz & Hall "Dutton Ranch" Russian River Valley Chardonnay Top Pick!
2014 Patz & Hall "Dutton Ranch" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This voluptuously seductive wine is also elegantly balanced. Citrus, wet stone and sea salt lift the minerality to pronounced levels, accented by a crispness of lemon peel and papaya wrapped in blossoming jasmine. Many of the vines on the site date back nearly 40 years, a demonstration that in age there is beauty." (9/2016) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch is a rather complex blend of multiple heritage clones from California, such as the Wente, Robert Young, Rued, the U.C. Davis Clone 4, and the Spring Mountain Clone. The wine offers up plenty of white pea ...Read More »

Stuhlmuller Vineyards sits at the southern edge of Alexander Valley where it borders both Chalk Hill and the Russian River Valley AVAs.

2012 Alysian Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Praise from the Prince of Pinot for the winemaker: "Gary Farrell is considered by many the father of Russian River Pinot Noir. Since the 1980s, his wines have been among the best from the Russian River Valley." Winemaker's tasting notes: "Many of the vineyard lots used to make this cuvée sat on skins for about a week after fermentation. My intention was to increase the tannin to add more complexity in the mouthfeel after some cellaring.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid ruby-red. Wilder and deeper in pitch than the 2011 version, displaying powerful black raspberry and boysenberry scents and smoky floral and herbal nuances. Juicy acidity adds lift and structure to the ripe, subtly spicy dark berry flavors. The finish features chewy tannins, an echo of candied flowers and very good persistence."

Equal parts pretty and funky, it’s a tightly wound, savory, fruity wine that’s elegant and compelling. The tannins and oak are lightly imprinted around strawberry-rhubarb and fresh-cut rose, and the texture seductively silky. This is a delicious treat of a wine that should also age."

The wine is at once slightly viscous, fairly mouthfilling and very energetic, and, while never impressing as a powerhouse, its potent but polished flavors last and last.

The new oak is relatively restrained, and the wine offers plenty of old Wente, the classic hallmark of white peach, but in this case, backed up with crushed rock and white pebble notes suggesting minerality.

2013 EnRoute "Les Pommiers" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

90 points Wine Spectator: "Focused on pure, rich, vivid raspberry, blackberry, anise and loamy earth flavors. This is pleasantly persistent on the finish, losing some fruit velocity.

This is one of the profound 2014s and should drink well for 15-20 years. (RP)" (3/2016) 92 points Vinous: "The 2014 Pinot Noir Bondi Home Ranch is a powerful, intense wine. Game, smoke, tobacco, licorice and red stone fruits meld together in a deep, vi ...Read More »
