Flowers Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2015This Chardonnay is a wine of distinction, with bright aromas of Meyer lemon peel and orange blossom framed by an herbal note of spearmint and hints of wet stone and shortbread. The elegant, balanced palate is driven by citrus and stone fruit that carry over onto a long finish marked with the distinctive acidity of the Sonoma Coast.
Orin Swift Slander Pinot Noir 2017An elegant nose presents, with complex aromatics of ripe cherries and dried rose petals, a touch of white pepper and a hint of alpine forest. Balanced and integrated, the palate comprises of sweet strawberries, cranberries, and traces of rhubarb. The wine closes at length with a finish of toasted brioche, a dash of caramel and fresh raspberries.
Belle Glos Las Alturas Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017Deep garnet in color with an aromatic medley of black cherry, marionberry, ripe plum and a hint of anise. Dark fruit on the palate with flavors of wild berries, caramelized oak and cacao nibs complemented by subtle notes of vanilla, cedar and a hint of lavender and forest floor. Rich and unrestrained, this wine's abundant fruit is beautifully balanced by firm acidity and layers of red and black fruit.
Maison L'Envoyé Two Messengers Pinot NoirThe nose is a vibrant mixture of red berries, rhubarb, vanilla essence and clove. Crunchy cranberries and vibrant purple fruits fill the palate and are complemented by a savory truffle nuance. The palate is opulent but focused and the wine feels alive throughout its impressive length. Possibly the best Two Messengers made to date.
La Crema Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2017Aromas of pomegranate and sweet tobacco are followed by flavors of berry fruit and plums with subtle hints of exotic spice and toast. On the palate, the wine has balanced acidity and fine tannins that drive a long finish.
Rodney Strong Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2016The 2016 Estate Russian River Valley Pinot Noir has lovely aromas of red fruit, floral and earth. With a soft and silky texture, on the palate dark cherry, cranberry, and baking spice characteristics shine through with balance, acidity and a nice lingering finish. This medium bodied wine was aged for 14 months in small French oak barrels, which added a hint of toasty vanilla and spice complexity. Enjoy this Pinot Noir now with charcuterie, wild mushroom risotto, grilled pork tenderloin or cellar it for enjoyment for the next 2 to 4 years.

Argyle Reserve Pinot Noir 2016Nose: Perfumed, floral, and red cherry weave with delicate mocha and five spice. Mouth: The tannins are firm, but rounded, an underlying minerality which drives the mid-palate through the long finish. While delving for pure fruit flavors and juicy acidity, we hang our phenolic hat on our trademark silky texture, which has been enhanced through cold soaking and fermenting in small, 1.5-ton fermentations.
Cristom Mt. Jefferson Cuvee Pinot Noir 2018This Pinot Noir is a medium garnet color. On the nose it is showing cola berry, oolong tea and wild berry aromas. It has the 'signature' Mt. Jefferson liveliness on the palate with bright, juicy red cherry flavors that echo on the finish. There are more complex flavors of earth and spice evident on the palate but they need a little time to show through more completely. This Pinot Noir will develop nicely in the short to medium term.
