2012 Alysian Russian River Valley Pinot Noir Top Pick!
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. This wine is quite approachable and crowd pleasing and I recommend opening the bottle about 15 minutes before drinking ... Read More »

2013 DuMol Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

91 points Vinous: "The 2013 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley) is a wonderful introduction to the vintage. Plump, juicy and forward, but with good underlying energy, the 2013 is impeccably balanced from start to finish. Dark red cherry, blueberry, spice, new leather and menthol are pushed forward in an impeccable appellation-level wine to drink now and over the next handful of years.

2013 Gary Farrell "Russian River Selection" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

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." (12/2015) Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* Perhaps, because it is not quite so severe, we like this bottling a tad better than its mate below. It is, o ...Read More »

2012 Joseph Swan "Cuvée de Trois" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

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." (6/2014) K&L Notes: An entry level Pinot Noir from one of K&L's longtime favorite producers.

Expressive spice notes wrap around a core of dark red fruits in an expressive Pinot that delivers the goods, and then some. Stephen Hansel is one of the most intelligent winery owners in Sonoma.

It is dark ruby, lush, medium to full-bodied and ideal for drinking over the next decade.

2014 Failla Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Supple and beautifully layered throughout, the Sonoma Coast hits all the right notes. A final burst of fruit rushes across the palate on the refreshing, inviting wine. There is so much to like.

2012 Joseph Swan "Saralee's Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Wine Spectator: "Complex, if on a modest scale, with graceful plum and raspberry fruit, shaded by fresh earth and spice notes. Holds focus and gains depth on the finish. Drink now through 2022." (9/2014) K&L Notes: Winemaker Rod Berglund, who inherited the job from his father-in-law, the legendary Joseph Swan himself, first made a Pinot Noir from one single row of Saralee's. By 2012, it was an important vineyard source for Swan, but the last vintage under the guidance of the late Saralee Kunde.

2015 Cep (Peay Vineyards) "Hopkins Ranch" Russian River Pinot Noir Rosé

Connoisseurs Guide: "Freshness rather than fruity volume is the major message here, and, if the wine is light on richness, it gets good marks for vigor and its close-to piquant, red cherry and strawberry traits. Its acidy inflection becomes more pronounced at the finish, and it may prove to be a little too tart for some tastes, but it will make useful drinking with entrees that call for a crisp Rosé with decidedly zesty acidity as a mate."

The 2014 Pinot Noir Russian River, which is in bottle, displays a seamless integration of acidity, tannin, medium to full body, and lots of raspberry and black cherry fruit that moves toward bluer fruits on the palate.

2014 Neyers "Placida Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

The fruit for this wine is from Chuy Ordaz’s Placida Vineyard, on the Gold Ridge Clay of the Russian River Valley, west of Santa Rosa. They harvest the fruit by hand, sort the berries, remove 50% of the stems, ferment in open top fermenters using native, wild yeast, and they punch down the cap manually several times daily. The wine is subsequently aged for one year in 60-gallon French oak barrels and has its own unique Burgundian profile.

More of a fruit bomb than the sharply focused, perfumed 2011 release but Bill Hunter assured me that in spite of this wine's impression of sucrosite, it finished with less than two grams per liter of residual sugar."

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.

2010 Williams Selyem Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

2014 Kosta Browne Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

From the producer: "There are many differences between vineyards in this small appellation but the majority of them do share a common influence – the cooling effect that follows the Russian River inland from the Pacific coast. This fog helps keep nights cool and offers vines a respite from daytime temperatures. In turn, these diurnal temperature swings slow down ripening and promote more evolved flavors in our grapes. We work with vineyards that span a diverse and varied view into a region that many would call the heartland of California Pinot Noir. Our ... Read More »

Pungent, spicy and broad, offering good weight to its dark berry jam, herb and spicecake flavors.

Rod Berglund is another grower/winemaker who told me that as seductive as the 2012s can be, the 2011s probably intrigue him more because "there's a freshness, a balance and a restraint to them that's just so classically pinot."

The grapes undergo a long, cool fermentation on wild yeast before the juice is transferred into barrels to complete the very end of fermentation. The wine is aged on its gross lees in 70% new French oak before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. From the winery: "The 2012 Bella Vigna Pinot Noir exh... Read More »

2013 Castalia "Rochioli Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

From winemaker Terry Bering: "I first made Pinot Noir as a home winemaker in 1985. I have been employed at Rochioli Winery since 1990 and worked the 1988 & 1989 crush, and have been Cellar Master at Rochioli for the last twenty-six years. I created the Castalia label in 1992. The 2014 vintage produced 348 cases. The wine was kept for 15 months in oak, 25% new, all French. This has given the wine a much softer feel at release. As always the wine is 100% from the Rochioli vineyards. The Flad Vinyard was planted to the West Block Clone back in the late 1980... Read More »

2009 Rochioli Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pinot Noir Estate exhibits copious cherry aromas intermixed with hints of root vegetables and spring flowers. It is a soft, round, generous, pure, strikingly seductive Pinot Noir to drink over the next 5-6 years." (2/2011) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Openly fruity, with plum, black cherry, mineral and spice notes that show a touch of cedar. Medium- to full-bodied, retaining its delicate profile. Drink now through 2017." (9/2011) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Powerful black raspberry and cherry pit aromas are complicated by sexy oak spices and a hint of mocha. Lush and round, with dark berry ...Read More »

2008 Kosta Browne Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

94 points Wine Spectator: "Dense, rich and extracted with deep currant and berry fruit, with mineral, sage and tea. (Web Only—2012)" 93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "As generously filled and as carefully balanced as any Pinot in this month's review, Kosta Browne's Russian River Valley bottling is absolutely brimming with succulent cherries overlain by lots of creamy oak. What it may lack in complexity, it more than makes up for in its ebullient young fruit, and we would not rule out an increased sense of the former after it has had a couple of years in which to develop. Still, it is so rich and inviting right now t ...Read More »

2013 Martinelli "Moonshine Ranch" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

94 points Vinous: "The 2013 Pinot Noir Moonshine Ranch is one of the juicier, more overt wines in this range. Dark red cherry, plum, spices, mint and dried flowers meld together in the glass. Pliant and expressive on the palate, the Moonshine Ranch is quite intense and voluptuous, but it also possesses a good amount of brightness and terrific overall balance. Rose petals and sweet red cherries add the final layers of nuance. I wish every Vinous reader could sit down for a tasting with the Martinelli family as I have had the privilege of doing for the last handful of years. ...Read More »
