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 »

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Pinot Noir is a seductive style of Pinot, with a medium ruby color, notes of black cherry and raspberry, light tannin, and not much depth, but it is superficially attractive and supple. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. (RP)" (3/2016)

2013 Dehlinger "Altamont" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

95 points Wine Spectator: "*#19 on Top 100 of 2015* A seamless, fleshy expression of juicy, enticing plum, cherry blossom and rose petal, with black cherry flavors at the core. A remarkably charming and seductive effort. Drink now through 2022." (9/2015) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Pinot Noir Altamont, which comes from the hilltop parcels spread across the family’s 45 acres of estate vineyards, is a smaller production cuvée. It offers more intensity, plenty of black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, with hints of licorice, underbrush and forest floor. It is round, juicy, full-bodied, and again, very pure ...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.

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."

This exuberant, flamboyant Pinot is sure to deliver considerable pleasure over the next few years. The addition of the fruit that would have been used for the Sonoma Coast bottling has improved the Russian River Pinot.

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

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.

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."

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."

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.

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."

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "The producer's larger-production offering, this in no way suffers from not having a vineyard designated. Instead, it shows the prowess of blending, delivering a big, bold style with elegance and grace. Tangy cranberry and orange rind wrap themselves around powerful acidity and a silky body, finishing with notes of earth and cardamom. (VB)" (6/2016) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An outstanding example of Pinot Noir, the 2013 Pinot Noir has a beautiful dark ruby color, nice earthy, plum, black cherry and berry scent, medium to full body, good acidity and ripe, well-integrated tannin.

2009 Rochioli Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

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. (JL)" (9/2011) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pinot Noir Estate is a gorgeous, sensual wine. Sweet red cherries, flowers and spices waft from the glass in the layered, exquisite Pinot. Rochioli’s Estate Pinot is easily one of the very finest wines in its price range. A long, silky finish leaves a lasting impression. This is all polish and elegance. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016. (AG)" (2/2012) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. ...Read More »

2001 Kistler "Kistler Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (Previously 110)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red-ruby. Pretty, nuanced nose combines raspberry, red cherry, flowers, earth and mint. At once dense and juicy, with lively raspberry and floral flavors complemented but not dominated by spicy oak. This should develop more complexity with bottle aging, but it's already captivating today thanks to its sappy freshness. Finishes very long and firmly tannic, with lingering raspberry and black cherry flavors. There are 1,500 cases of this wine, making it by far Kistler's largest cuvee of Pinot Noir. (ST)" (5/2004) Wine Spectator: "Mature, showing supple, elegant and spi ...Read More »

2012 Chasseur "Umino" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep ruby-red. Black cherry, loamy underbrush and high-pitched exotic spices on the nose and palate. Creamy-sweet and highly concentrated. 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." (5/2014) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Pinot Noir Umino (200 cases produced) exhibits sweet plum, raspberry and black cherry fruit, medium to full body, a fleshy, opulent mid-palate, and a long, pure, well-endowed finish. ...Read More »

1995 Williams-Selyem "Olivet Lane" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

93 points Wine Spectator: "Smooth, rich and polished, with a broad, ripe core of supple black cherry, plum and berry notes. Long, complex aftertaste keeps pumping out the flavors. (JL)" (6/1997) 92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Completely primary, extremely fresh and remarkably complex aromas blend seamlessly into intense, delicious, dense moderately structured flavors that possess serious length. There is real elegance and simply flat out wonderful purity and this was easily the best wine in the flight. This could be drunk now or held." (7/2004)

2013 Holdredge "Rolling Thunder" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

This small family winery makes fewer than 2000 cases of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir each year, which enables them to truly handcraft each wine. The 2013 Rolling Thunder is powerful but precise, with juicy dark-berry aromatics, ripe tannins, and structured acidity. The winemaker estimates that this will peak in another 7 years, and hold for years beyond that--so grab a bottle for now and save a few for later!

2013 Capiaux "Chimera" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

90 points Vinous: "Bright cranberry, spice, red cherry, mint and cinnamon lift from the glass in the 2013 Chimera. The flavors are bright, high-toned and lifted throughout, with lovely energy and tension throughout. This is a terrific introduction to Sean Capiaux's wines. The Chimera is raised in 350 liter, thick-staved barrels, which naturally allows for less exchange with oxygen than standard barrels. (AG)" (9/2014)
