2013 Walter Hansel "North Slope" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Absolutely magnificent is the 2013 Pinot Noir The North Slope. This wine is deep, rich, with forest floor, blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, licorice and Asian spices. It is full-bodied, somewhat primordial and dense, but muscular, rich, concentrated, and has the biggest upside and potential for complexity of all of the 2013s. Give it another several years of bottle age and drink it over the following decade. Some of the best values in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir emerge from Stephen Hansel’s winery in the Russian River Valley. He also has the wonderful W ...Read More »

Honey, white flowers, butter, orange blossoms and an element of exoticism on the creamy finish. What a gorgeous wine this is. Stephen Hansel is one of the most intelligent winery owners in Sonoma.

2013 Ridge "Geyserville" Alexander Valley Zinfandel Top Pick!
2013 Ridge "Geyserville" Alexander Valley Zinfandel

94 points Vinous: "The 2013 Zinfandel Geyserville is every bit as fabulous from bottle as it was from barrel last year. Ripe and voluptuous on the palate - yet with a super-classic conception of structure, the 2013 offers superb depth and impeccable overall balance. Waves of dark red cherry, pomegranate, spice, tobacco lead to more savory/ferrous notes that develop in the glass. Saline notes give the 2013 much of its energy and vivacity. This is a tremendous effort from Ridge. As is my custom, I have included Ridge's Sonoma wines here for ease of reference. Readers should ...Read More »

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*#12 in Wine Enthusiast's The Enthusiast 100 of 2015 and an Editors' Choice* This might be one of the best values on the market, given the quality. 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 97% Zinfandel and the rest mixed old-vine black varietals planted probably by the first or second generation of Italian immigrants.

2013 Walter Hansel "Estate" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 1,260 cases of the 2013 Chardonnay Estate, a great bargain. At a retail price of $25 a bottle, it is hard to get more flavor and complexity in a Chardonnay than this cuvée possesses. Notes of poached pear, honeysuckle and white peach notes are offered in an elegant, medium-bodied, lively style. Like all of the Walter Hansel Chardonnays, it went through 100% malolactic fermentation, and was aged 10 months in 30-40% new French oak. Consume it over the next 5-6 years."

2011 Ousterhout "Nance's Vineyard" Alexander Valley Zinfandel (Previously $28)

Douglas and Nancy Ousterhout purchased the vineyard in 2009 and hired a pinot noir winemaker, Micah Wirth of Joseph Jewel, to create this silky, delicate zin. It’s as bright as a red cherry fresh off the tree, feeling almost weightless on the palate.

This is a multi-dimensional, profound Chardonnay (as it often was when made by Helen Turley) from a vineyard planted with an Old Wente clone as well as the Hyde clone of Chardonnay.

2013 Limerick Lane Russian River Valley Zinfandel

It finished at 14.6% alcohol and shows plenty of classic Mediterranean roasted herbs, pepper, spice and full-bodied blackberry and cherry fruit. It’s a classic Zinfandel, very pure, impressively crafted and should drink nicely for up to a decade."

2013 Joseph Jewell Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Joseph Jewell saw enormous success with their 2012 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir which was named one of the "Top 100" wines of the year by Wines & Spirits Magazine. The 2013 has not yet been professionally reviewed, but the strength of the vintage puts it in excellent position to once again get noticed at this very attractive price point. From the winery: "Blended from three different vineyard sites, this medium-bodied wine is a transparent ruby hue. It offers a perfume of cherry liqueur, cassis, wild rose, vanilla, and baking spice. Bright red fruits ... Read More »

2012 Ravenswood "Belloni" Russian River Valley Zinfandel

95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Three Stars* One of our favorite Ravenswood Bellonis to date, this immensely appealing effort is absolutely brimming with very pure, keenly varietal, berry-like fruit, and, while is does not stint on ripeness, neither is it defined by it. It is moderately full-bodied and solidly structured with plenty of flesh and not a hint of extra fat. It is so forthright and juicy that it can be enjoyed in its youth, but, make no mistake, this one is guaranteed to repay keeping and should grow for years." (1/2015) 94 points Wine & Spirits: "Ravenswood winemaker Joel Peterson has worked with Bel ...Read More »

2013 Twomey Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

It turns out they know a thing or two about producing delicious, palate-pleasing Pinot Noir, too. The 2013 vintage of Twomey's Russian River Pinot Noir is made from fruit from three Russian River vineyards.

2012 Emeritus Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Wine & Spirits: "In 2012 the dry-farmed vines at Hallberg gave a simple, welcoming pinot noir with dark fruit that suggests black plum and blueberry. The plump texture finds its balance against juicy acidity, ready for a pork chop roasted with a sprig of rosemary." (4/2015) Wine Enthusiast: "This is a high-toned, structured wine with vibrant acidity that is layered in earth, spice, raspberry and black tea. After a medium-sized weight to the midpalate, it finishes soft and round." (2/2015)

2010 Stonestreet "Estate" Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A lovely Cabernet, ripe and delicious, yet complex enough to hold your interest. It’s just beginning its journey in the bottle. Very dark in color, with hard tannins, it has an immense core of blackberries and cherries. Give it at least 6–8 years, but it could still be rocking in 2022." (8/2013) 91 points Decanter: "Concentrated flavors of brambly blackberry and cassis supported by notes of bay leaf, pepper and graphite. Full and mouthfilliung, the wine's tannins are stout but polished. Drink 2015-2023." (9/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Monument is gorgeous and totally juicy ...Read More »
