95 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"A crazy good value, the 2017 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley is the appellation release from this team, and it comes from all of the estate vineyards across the Green Valley, Laguna Ridge, and Sebastopol regions. Complex notes of strawberries, cranberries, violets, pine forest, and flowers all flow to a medium-bodied Pinot Noir that has a kiss of salinity and marine notes, ripe tannins, and a great finish. This beautiful wine competes with wines costing 2-3 times the price." - Jeb Dunnuck (6/14/2019)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant notes of warm cassis, baked blueberries and plum preserves plus hints of cigar box, pencil lead and wild sage. Medium-bodied, the palate has great bags of juicy fruit with a chewy texture and just enough freshness, finishing on an uncomplicated blackberry note. 310,000 cases were made." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (9th Apr 2020)

90 Points - Vinous:
"Brilliant yellow. Aromas of fresh peach and honeydew melon are given urgency by hints of chalky minerals and lemon pith. Juicy and seamless in texture, offering pliant melon and pit fruit flavors that slowly tighten up on the back half. Finishes silky and long, with a discreet floral note hanging on." Josh Raynolds - (Nov 2019)

94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"One of the flagship cuvées from this estate that’s produced in every vintage, the 2015 Reserva is a blend of 70% Tempranillo and the rest Garnacha, Mazuelo, and Graciano that spent 24 months in used French and American oak. Blackberries, currants, cigar wrapper, cedar box, and hints of vanilla all flow to a medium-bodied, concentrated, beautiful Rioja that has ripe tannins, beautiful balance, and a great finish. You couldn't go wrong with a case of this." - Jeb Dunnuck (9/6/2019)

Notes From the Winemaker:

The Sonoma Bench Pinot Noir is a concentrated mélange of dark cherry and raspberry with hints of mushrooms and layers of French Oak. The fruit was harvested from vineyards in the Russian River Valley in the area surrounding Sebastopol. In this area the soft rolling hills of the Russian River Valley combine with layers of yellow clay that limit productivity and concentrate this exceptional fruit. Consider serving this fine Pinot Noir with rack of lamb grilled over smoking rosemary coals and line caught king salmon.

13.5% ABV

93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Wild rosemary, thyme and camphor aromas lead off, with concentrated flavors of blackberry and black currant. An iron edge sinks in as this unfolds to the long, staining finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2020 through 2032. 11,000 cases made, 5,500 cases imported. — BS" (Issue Oct 15, 2018)
