    This wine offers both the sweet and the savory, with a heady mix of violet, Kirsch, smoked meats, anise and black olives. On the palate, it is firm and full-bodied, with an age-worthy, almost Cabernet like structure. An acid-driven freshness underscores the flavors, adding length and dimension to this sophisticated Syrah.

    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.

    This appellation is widely described as `sprawling` as it encompasses half or more of the county. Anthill Farm`s fruit comes from two of the coolest, most coastal parts of this appellation.The low coast, west of Sebastopol on the edge of the Petaluma Gap; and the high coast, the first or second ridge inland from the ocean farther to the north. These sites are united by the direct influence of the Pacific‘s cool, marine air, delaying ripening well into October. The 2013 is one of the most precise Sonoma Coast wines Anthill Farms have made to date: detailed aromas of fresh-cut cranberry mix with satsuma rind and cracked fennel seed. The palate is warm and inviting, with waves of gentle, liquid tannin spilling over the tongue, all leading to a long, gauzy finish. This wine is quite approachable on release, but three or four years of aging will be very rewarding.

    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.

    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

    This wine is fermented in 100% neutral French oak. This is made in a European style with high acidity and lots of mouth feel. The vineyard sits at 2000 feed and is close enough to the Pacific to be able to hear the ocean waves. The Pinot is particularly affected by the fog which gives the wine great tension, undercutting the blackberry and mushroom notes. (Drink from now)

    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.

  • Wine

    Elegant and beautifully balanced, this Pinot Noir has aromas of ripe cherry, vanilla and a hint of savory herbs, while on the palate it is juicy and refined with a hint of dusty cherry. The wine has a big rich mouth-feel, silky tannins and a long finish. This wine possesses a classic Rochioli character.

    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 Hagan Vineyard perches high above the edge of the continent fully facing the cold Pacific Ocean on the esteemed Taylor Lane west of Occidental.

    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.

    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

    Similar to the Mt Carmel 3 5 bottling, except with more tension and vibrancy, the 2013 Pinot Noir Mt Carmel Vineyard spent 16 months in 33% new French oak, with the balance all in neutral oak, before being bottled unfiltered in March, 2015. It offers lots of rose petal, sappy underbrush and liquid-rock characteristics to go with ample cassis and black cherry fruit. Thrillingly textured, pure and seamless, with medium-bodied richness and depth, this is a sensational Pinot Noir from the Sta. Rita Hills that stays fresh and vibrant without making any concessions to fruit or texture. It will have 10-15 years of overall longevity. " 96 points, Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate.

  • "Fleshing out beautifully since I tasted it from barrel last year, the 2013 Pinot Noir Mt Carmel Vineyard 3 5 offers lots of minerality and saltiness to go with darker-based fruits, crushed violets and cassis. Slightly reserved aromatically, it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, a supple, expansive texture and a big finish. Fermented with a tiny 5% whole-cluster and aged 11 months in 48% new French oak, it`s an incredible Pinot Noir that has no problem standing beside the more expensive Mt Carmel bottling. Drink it anytime over the coming decade." 95 points, Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate.
