2012 Walter Hansel "Cuvee Alyce" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Pinot Noir Cuvée Alyce, a blend of clones 115 and 777 grown in heavy clay soils, was made from tiny yields of one ton of fruit per acre.

2012 Walter Hansel "South Slope Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid ruby. Sexy red berry and rose pastille aromas show very good clarity and a good dose of Asian spices. Silky, sweet and expansive on the palate, offering energetic raspberry and cherry flavors and an exotic touch of blood orange that adds a bitter edge. Pure and precise, with excellent finishing lift, cut and gentle tannins that fold into the lively red fruit.

2012 Emeritus Russian River Pinot Noir

89 points 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) 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)

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."

2010 Alysian "Russian River Selection" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Connoisseurs Guide: "If not a wine for fans of extract and high ripeness, this relatively mild-mannered offering is both balanced and accessible with a good fix on Pinot Noir. It very much follows the Alysian model in that it is lithe and light on its feet, and it tenaciously hangs on to plenty of buoyant, red-cherry fruit even as it takes a turn to last-minute tartness." (10/2014) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. Musky red berries, cherry pit and dried flowers on the nose.

Dark red cherries, blueberries, cloves, lavender and mint flesh out in a juicy Russian River Pinot full of near-term appeal. There is a savory, delicate quality in the 2013 that makes it irresistible. About 40% of this fruit is estate."

Youthful, highly perfumed red and dark berry scents are complemented by deeper notes of cola, mocha and black cardamon, with a sexy floral nuance building in the glass. Smooth, sweet and expansive, offering mineral-laced black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors that become weightier with air. The supple, smoky finish is framed by velvety, slow-building tannins.

Their even-handed approach clearly paid off in the moderate 2012 growing season, resulting in this sleek, vivid apotheosis of Russian River pinot noir.

2006 Kistler "Cuvée Natalie Silver Belt Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Silver Belt Cuvée Natalie Pinot Noir appears to be top-notch. It exhibits rich, medium to full-bodied flavors of forest floor, black cherry, raspberry, licorice, and earth. (RP)" (12/2008)94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red color. Loamy red berry and cherry aromas expand with air, picking up strong floral and smoky mineral qualities. The floral note gains strength with air and carries onto the palate, adding complexity to the wine's deep, chewy cherry and dark berry flavors. This is like two wines in one, with a high-pitched nose and a deeper, weightier palate. The finish ...Read More »

2012 Paul Hobbs "Lindsay Estate" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dense, rich 2012 Pinot Noir Katherine Lindsay Estate may turn out to be the finest of these 2012s. It offers exuberant black raspberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with spring flower, forest floor and a touch of oak characteristics. This gorgeous 2012 should drink well for a decade. (RP)" (12/2013)94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2012 Pinot Noir Katherine Lindsay Estate is one of the brighter, more lifted wines in the range. There is plenty of intensity and depth in the glass, but a dollop of whole clusters here adds compelling floral and savory overtones. This delicious, su ...Read More »

2009 Williams Selyem "Westside Road Neighbors" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid ruby-red. Heady, intensely perfumed scents of raspberry and cherry preserves, sandalwood, dried rose and gingerbread. At once precise and deep, offering sweet red and dark fruit flavors lifted by tangy acidity, with silky tannins providing support. This tactile, palate-staining, lively midweight finishes with excellent definition and lingering spiciness." (6/2011)91 points Wine Spectator: "Very complete, complex and balanced, with subtle cherry, plum and raspberry fruit that's supple and graceful. Medium- to full-bodied, gaining depth and richness on the finish, where the ...Read More »

2007 Williams-Selyem "Flax Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Plant the old-line Pommard clone in the fractured sandstone soils of the Russian River Valley and you get a silken beauty like this 2007 Flax. The vines, planted in 1996, produced a wine with the textural richness of great Russian River pinot and the transparent red fruit clarity Pommard can achieve in top sites. The floral fruit and tannin meld seamlessly, fragrant, cool and foresty. And for all its concentrated flavor, it tastes as clean and fresh as rainwater. For quail roasted with hedgehog mushrooms." (4/2010)94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Despite firm tannins and tough acidity th ...Read More »

1999 Rochioli Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Pinot Noir Estate enjoys about one-third new French oak (all Francois Freres). The finest regular Pinot Rochioli has yet produced, it exhibits a dense ruby color as well as a gorgeous nose of black cherry jam intermixed with earth, smoke, vanillin, and spice. The grapes were picked very ripe, which is reflected in the wine's sweet black fruit character. Drink this impressive Pinot Noir over the next 4-5 years. (RP)" (12/2000)91 points Wine Spectator: "*Highly Recommended* Tight, well-structured California Pinot here, with a firm band of cherry, blackberry, raspberry and s ...Read More »

2011 Kosta Browne "Keefer Ranch" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "We have often found a singular and very identifiable purity to the fruit of Russian River's best Pinot sites, and this lovely version from Keefer Ranch is perfect example of just that. It is optimally ripened and very rich right from the first with a long and very deep complement of juicy, red-cherry fruit, and its teasing suggestions of sweet oak and dried flowers only make a good thing even better. It manages to be lively and lithe and fairly substantial all at once, and its lengthy, amazingly vital finish further marks it as a decidedly collectable wi ...Read More »
