    Stolpman`s largest cuvée, amounting to some 4,400 cases, is the keenly priced 2016 Syrah Estate, which reveals a classic nose of blackberry, violets, rose petal, cracked pepper and grilled meat. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, expansive and juicy with an ample core of sweet fruit and good length and persistence. Some chalky tannins assert themselves on the finish, but it`s already drinking well. William Kelley 92

    The well-drained Ohlson Ranch sandstone soils naturally limit vigor while the cool sunshine, moderated by the fog covered Pacific Ocean, maintains balanced ripening throughout the growing season.

    Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Home Field Vineyard gives up notes of black tea, scorched earth, raspberries and wild blueberries with fragrant wafts of lilacs and rose hips plus a suggestion of charcuterie. Medium-bodied, intensely fruited and tightly wound, the palate is taut, muscular and lively with bags of energy down to the long, perfumed finish. 94+/100 Lisa Perrotti-Brown

    Exotic spices, musky pheramones, minerality, darjaleeng tea, a temptress.

    Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Bodega Vineyard has a compelling animal/meaty waft over a core of baked cherries, warm strawberries, rhubarb, fertile loam, dried Provence herbs and lavender. Medium-bodied with a great mid-palate of muscular red fruit, it has a solid line of grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long with loads of mineral and earthy layers. 94/100 Lisa Perrotti-Brown

  • The 2016 Chardonnay Haynes Vineyard, from a site in Coombsville planted in 1964 on St. George rootstock, stands out for its translucence and class. Weightless and yet phenolic in feel, the Haynes is a wine of total distinction. A host of savory and mineral inflections give the Haynes its flavor signatures, but above all else, this is a Chardonnay of structure. 94 points Galloni

    On the nose this shows ripe red apple fruit along with orchard blossom and citrus aromas as well as a saline wet stone minerality. The palate is much tarter than the nose suggests with fresh yellow apple flavours, grapefruit and orange juice. The wine has a precise acidity, subtle toasty flavours of vanilla and cinnamon from oak barrels and has a medium plus length. Drink from 2017.

    The 2013 Pinot Noir Hidden Block is a very pretty, lifted wine. Sweet red cherry, mint and floral notes grace the palate in an understated, surprisingly gracious Pinot from the Varner brothers. The Hidden Block is one of the more delicate, acid-driven Pinots I have tasted from Varner. This is the first block that is picked, which likely contributes to the wine`s laid-back personality and expressive aromatics. Antonio Galloni 93

    Another brilliant wine in this range, the 2016 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard is superb. Dense, powerful and beautifully layered, the 2016 exudes richness in all of its dimensions. There is plenty of Hudson textural resonance, but the 2016 is at the same time quite polished and refined. I very much admire the sense of balance. 94 points Galloni

    Jessie enjoys the steepest aspect of the estate and produces arguably the most Burgundian-like wine of all the single vineyard offerings. This 2013 has a delightful mix of spice, red fruits and fresh, brambly Pinot character. Drink. 2019-2024

  • The 2015 Syrah John Lewis is the most youthfully reserved but also the most incipiently complex of these offerings from Gramercy Cellars, unfurling in the glass with notes of violets, potpourri, sweet black fruits, tapenade and Egyptian musk. On the palate, it`s medium to full-bodied, multidimensional and complete, with excellent concentration, bright balancing acids and fine-grained but youthfully chewy tannins. This will need 5 or 6 years in the cellar and continue to develop for 15 years thereafter.- William Kelley 96+

  • 100% chardonnay from two adjacent vineyard on the North Fork (Macari and Mattebella). 1/3 of fruit was skin-fermented in open-top puncheons, 2/3s was juice-fermented in neutral wood--spontaneous fermentation. An homage to Abe`s mentor, John Kongsgaard and the infamous wine, the Judge - Abe Schoener

    Greg Harrington MS’s wines never cease to amaze, always full of fruit concentration. Lagniappe 2014 does not disappoint, with notes of black cherry, blackcurrant, and meaty with oak spice. Drinking really well now, but it will improve if you are patient enough to cellar it.

    (all from Red Willow vineyard; made from a clone that Harrington believes originally came from Hermitage, while the John Lewis is 100% Phelps clone, which is rumored to come from Guigal in Côte-Rôtie; vinified with 100% whole clusters): Healthy ruby-red. Tight, high-pitched scents of blueberry, blackberry, mint and minerals. Distinctly dry but rich on the palate, conveying a strong impression of berry ripeness. Serious tannins spread out to saturate the palate, but the long, rising finish maintains brisk fruit intensity. -Stephen Tanzer 93

    Translucent pale ruby in hue, the 2016 Pinot Noir Los Alamos Vineyard offers up an earthy bouquet of beetroot, spice, citrus rind and cola. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, supple and open-knit, albeit a little ephemeral, with melting tannins and juicy acids. This is structured for near-term consumption. William Kelley 89

    Chanin`s 2016 Chardonnay Los Alamos Vineyard opens in the glass with a youthfully reserved nose of buttered citrus, apples, flowers and fresh nuts. On the palate, the wine is glossy, rich and quite lees influenced, with good concentration and depth and a moderately long finish. - William Kelley 91

  • (vinified with 60% whole clusters): Bright, dark red. Sexy purple aromas of black raspberry and violet accented by spices and a suggestion of wild herbs that`s no doubt partly from the stems): Firm but rather open-knit for this bottling; distinctly less hard than in the early years. Offers a solid deep core of tart red plum and spices and finishes with a fine dusting of tannins, noteworthy length and no rough edges. Harrington was a bit less specific about food matches for this wine: "with a grilled or roasted four-legged animal." - Stephen Tanzer 90
