  • "The 2016 Pinot Noir Abbey Harris Vineyard is one of the most powerful and tightly wound wines in the range. Layers of fruit are wrapped around a spine of tannin in this hugely promising Pinot. Even though the wine is still recovering from its recent bottling, there is more than enough complexity to make me think all it needs is time. -- Antonio Galloni 93+ "

    With this Pinot, Anthill Farms look to create a food-friendly, nuanced wine that represents the unique character of the Anderson Valley. Somewhat remote from most of Northern California’s wine-growing districts, this valley shelters a surprisingly harmonious blend of the wild and the civilized. in one vista, one can see sheep ranches, redwood groves, apple orchards, and impenetrable oak scrub.

    The 2013 is a delicious and serious wine, racy and focussed, with sublime balance and length. This is high-class juice in every respect, packed with bright citrus flavours, subtle stone fruit and full of mineral complexities, possibly outshining any other Californian white we`ve tried (that has even been close to this price point). The impressive phenolics give a breadth and texture that you simply don`t see from other winemakers and there`s a chalkiness and tang to the wine that is reminiscent of Grand Cru Chablis. It`s almost impossible to resist now, but will only get better and better and we wouldn`t hesitate to cellar for up to 5-8 years (or beyond!). Just gorgeous!

    "The 2016 Pinot Noir Campbell Ranch Vineyard opens with a serious burst of fruit. There is terrific depth and intensity, but today the oak is showing a bit more prominently than is typically the case with the Anthill Pinots. The 33% whole clusters are not at all evident. The Campbell Ranch has quite a bit of potential. -- Antonio Galloni 93+"

    This very unique Trousseau grows on limestone soil, the perfect environment to make a pure and mineral red wine. Combe 2016 is light-bodied showing subtle hints of dried herbs, bright red cherries, cranberries and rubharb. The underlying stony minerality and very delicate tannins makes it the perfect match for cheese or a light lunch, served straight out of the eurocave for fresher temperature.

    This 30 year old vineyard made up from seven acres of Pinot Noir and eight acres of Chardonnay was planted by the Demuth family. The age of the vines enables the vineyards to be dry farmed to improve sustainability.

    Very fresh and complex on the nose, this wine delivers aromas of lemon curd, honeysuckle and juicy pear. Lychee, pineapple and hints of honey add weight and textural richness to the palate. A slight nuttiness rounds out the minerality, creating a long, complex finish.

    Brilliant garnet in colour, the nose reveals classic Durell notes of light spice and blackberry tart. Coffee grounds, pine and clove add to its complexity. On the palate, a unique fusion of rhubarb and tart black cherry flavors create a succulent finish, while maintaining Durell’s signature spice and smooth, unctuous mouthfeel.

    The hallmark of this wine is the spicy, smoky quality that underpins the dark fruit character. Concentrated and with great tension, this is delicious now due to its ripe fruit and balance but could have a long future ahead of it if it is allowed to. In 2000 16 acres of Pinot Noir were densely planted to protect the vines from the ocean winds and to provide heat from the soil. Duvarita starts at around 180 feet, rising to 370 feet and it is farmed bio-dynamically. (Drink from now)

    This is a new wine from the stars at Varner which fits neatly between the Foxglove range and the small production single vineyard offerings. It is ripe and rich with some spice yet fresh enough to lift it above its peers. Drink from 2015

    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

    It is so difficult to find Pinot Noir of this quality at this price point and that is just what the Grace Bridge delivers. Lodi once again proving to be the source of wines of terrific value and quality. Bright, juicy and rich, this is a great introduction to Californian Pinot Noir. The Californian sun has led to ripe fruit flavours but there is more than enough acidity to keep this taut and fresh. Hugely crowd pleasing.
