2013 Flowers Sonoma Coast Chardonnay Top Pick!
2013 Flowers Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

93 points Wine & Spirits: "A captivating balancing act, this blend of fruit from the Camp Meeting Ridge estate and other coastal sites feels at once concentrated and weightless. The first impression is one of healthy, plump fruit-ripe apricot, perhaps a hint of caramelized sugar-but it hews to a clean line, the flavors growing more earthy as taut acidity pulls toward crisp, green-tinged suggestions of seashells and borage flowers. More than the flavors themselves, it’s the overall impression of satiny grace that gives this coastal white its beauty." (4/2015)92 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2013 Chardonnay (Son ...Read More »

2012 Flowers Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This beautiful Pinot Noir is a blend of various vineyards throughout the appellation. It shows classic coastal acidity, dryness and silkiness, with appealing raspberry, red licorice, cola and pomegranate flavors, wrapped into finely ground tannins. Decant and drink now." (6/2014) Antonio Galloni: "Sweet red berries, mint, flowers, hard candy and spices all inform the 2012 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast), the only 2012 Pinot that was in bottle at the time of this tasting. The 2012 is quite a bit racier and silkier than the 2011, a wine I have enjoyed on multiple occasions. There i ...Read More »

Known for their estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Spottswoode makes a fine Sauvignon of the Blanc variety, as well. In his review of the previous vintage, Robert Parker gave it 90 points and noted, "Medium-bodied but surprisingly intense and rich, this dry, crisp white is one of the better Sauvignons made in Northern California."

2013 Shafer "Red Shoulder Ranch" Carneros Chardonnay

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch looks like one of their all-time greats, and to date they’ve all been very impressive wines. The crisp tangerine, honeyed citrus, pear and white peach notes are prominent in this beautifully fruited medium to full-bodied Chardonnay that shows additional orange marmalade notes in the mouth. It’s textured, crisp acid, from having not gone though malolactic, gives it focus and zest, and the overall impression is one of brilliant richness subtly touched by smoke, but letting the fruit dominate.

2011 Grgich Hills "Estate" Napa Valley Chardonnay (Previously $40)

Connoisseurs Guide: "The Chardonnays of Grgich Hills are rarely, if ever, wines that trade on high ripeness and richness, but this very lean, nearly wiry young wine flirts with suggestions of greenness and proves to be very tight-fisted at this point. While we like its freshness and its hard-to-miss vibrancy, we would be happier if it were a little more outgoing in fruit, but given the winery's track record for slow-to-unfold, long-aging white wines, we are willing to set this one aside for several years."

2013 Pahlmeyer Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

93 points Antonio Galloni: "Pahlmeyer's 2013 Chardonnay is gorgeous and also a fascinating contrast to Chardonnay from the family's Wayfarer property on the Sonoma Coast. Here, though, it is the Russian River that speaks with notable eloquence. Orange blossom, butter, new French oak, apricot pit, mint and spice notes abound. The 2013 is quite extroverted in style, but less overt than in years past. The new Francois Freres barrels are evident but also very nicely integrated. The 2013 is the first vintage made exclusively from Ritchie Vineyard fruit, whereas in the past, grapes from ...Read More »

Finishes with good cut, grip and gentle tannins, leaving a note of orange marmalade behind."

Jayson is the second label of Pahlmeyer Wines, with a focus on quality and approachability. The 2013 vintage was dry and hot in Napa, and harvest was considerably earlier than usual. What resulted is a deep, delicious concentration in the wines. From the winery: "The intensity of this wine is first revealed by its garnet core, then from concentrated aromas of dark black cherry and coffee, nicely lifted by notes of candied red fruits, sarsaparilla and a hint of leather.

Nicely avoids the greenness of the vintage and finishes with a fine dusting of tannins, good energy and moderate length."

2011 Littorai "Cerise Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a high-altitude site in Anderson Valley, the 2011 Pinot Noir Cerise Vineyard is one of the wilder wines in this range. A deep, almost inky red, the Cerise shows the more animal side of Pinot in its game, tar, smoke, black pepper, licorice and black cherries. This is also one of the most powerful wines of the 2011s, but at the same time I find less elegance than in some of the other offerings.

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Merlot (3,000 cases) is a worthy rival. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, this blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc tips the scales at a heady 14.6% alcohol. Could it be better than the 1997? The wine is opaque black/purple-colored, with a knock-out nose of plums, black cherries, chocolate, raspberries, licorice, and toasty new oak. Viscous in the mouth, with superb purity, this is a riveting, mind-boggling Merlot that sets a new reference point for this varietal in California.
