2012 Walter Hansel "North Slope" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Slightly better is the 2012 Chardonnay North Slope, which comes from California clones 95 and 76. Made from much smaller yields than the Cahill Lane, it sees about 40% new French oak, and reveals terrific fruit intensity along with a full-bodied mouthfeel, a good underlying wet gravel-like character, and loads of peach, pineapple and honeysuckle notes. The wine exhibits a light green hue to its color (which I always consider a positive). It can be drunk over the next 5-7 years."

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 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.

2012 Jordan Russian River Valley Chardonnay (Elsewhere $35)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "The winery is making new strides by finding the best sites for its wines rather than trying to grow everything on its estate. This Chardonnay is a case in point.

2011 Williams Selyem "Bucher Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "**Cellar Selection** Raspberries, cherries, cola, exotic spices and sweet cedar mark the flavors of this Pinot Noir.

Deeply pitched aromas of poached pear, almond and honey are brightened by a suggestion of minerally oyster shell. Round and velvety but at the same time showing vibrancy to its ripe orchard fruit and melon flavors. A late jolt of lemon pith adds bite to a supple, clingin ...Read More »
