2013 Dehlinger "Estate" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

2014 Patz & Hall "Dutton Ranch" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

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."

Equal parts pretty and funky, it’s a tightly wound, savory, fruity wine that’s elegant and compelling.

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.

It saw 80% new oak because it was so concentrated, and it seems to have sucked it up and only reveals just a slight wood spice to its full-bodied, beautifully textured, black raspberry and blackberry fruit.

2013 Twomey Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine was sourced from three vineyards, including Gap's Crown atop what may one day be officially known as the Petaluma Gap, and the estate property known as Last Stop Ranch. It offers a mix of smoky charcuterie alongside tart cherry and cranberry, a balance of savory and sweet. Lightly textured and bodied, it finishes in piquant cinnamon spice and ginger." (12/2015) K&L Notes: Did you know that the Duncan family, the folks who've been making Silver Oak's legendary Cabs form more than 30 years, are the same family behind Twomey? It turns out they know a thing or ... Read More »

2014 Raeburn Russian River Valley Chardonnay

Wine Enthusiast: "This is a 100% varietal wine made to be widely distributed and enjoyed by a range of palates. With a slight perception of sweetness, which may just be ripeness, it gives way to fleshy flavors of baked apple and pineapple. (VB)" (6/2016)

2012 Donum Estate "Ten Oaks" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This flirts with reduction and while it's subtle, it's enough to take the top notes off of the red cherry, currant and subtle plum scents; if you're going to try a bottle young I would suggest decanting it for 20 minutes or so first. The lush, round and very generously proportioned medium-bodied flavors possess a highly seductive mid-palate before concluding in a dusty finish that really fans out. I like the complexity and if your taste runs to big, bold and rich Pinots, this would make for a good choice." (10/2015) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "From an estate-farmed property in the Ru ...Read More »

2012 Gary Farrell "Russian River Selection" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Once again not a wine that introduces itself with a big flourish of ripeness and oak, this one starts out just a bit on the lean side but fills in and fills out as it goes. It is comfortably fruity with a nice mix of citrus and both ripe and green apples as its central message, and, while not absent of oak, it keeps the latter to a judicious minimum. If by a slight margin the most forward of the Farrell clan, it nonetheless possesses fine potential for aging and will improve for several years." (7/2014) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "A mix of fruit spanning across the Russian River Vall ...Read More »
