    2014 Rayhill Vineyard Pinot Noir

    Earthy baked cherry and a strong streak of cardamom make for an impressive entry to this wine, flavors that persist on the palate. Beautifully rich without being ridiculous, it finds balance in complex, layered textures and nuanced characteristics, with a length of rose petals on the finish. —Virginie Boone, October 2016

    2014 Damaris Reserve Chardonnay

    Spicy, lemony acidity balances out a classic barrel imprint of oakiness and toast in this medium-bodied, concentrated wine. Silky-smooth on the palate, it rewards patience in the glass and will pair well with rich, creamy foods. —Virginie Boone, October 2016

    2014 Grand Detour Pinot Noir

    Shy and reserved on the nose, this wine is invitingly smooth and velvety in texture, with an intensity at its core. Anise, black tea, rose petals and cherry pie all figure in, with a juicy succulence making it pleasurable from first sip to last drop. —Virginie Boone, October 2016

    2014 Flocchini Chardonnay

    Dark in color and voluptuous in body and texture, this wine was aged in French oak, 35% of it new. With a sizable presence on the palate, it generously reveals brooding flavors of apple and pear. —Virginie Boone, October 2016

    2014 Overlook Chardonnay

    Alluring aromas of smoky, toasty oak and rich flavors of fig, apricot and melon give this an appealing, drink-me-now character. Drink now. —James Laube, July 2016

    2014 Rayhill Vineyard Pinot Noir

    A Pinot of character and style, focused on dusty wild berry, cherry, blueberry and gravelly earth flavors, all pulling together, giving this a sense of power and presence. Drink now. —James Laube, 2016

    2014 Kosich Vineyard Pinot Noir

    The 2014 Pinot Noir Kosich Vineyards is from a site in Carneros. This is a strong, dense, concentrated Pinot Noir with a deep plum/ruby/purple color, loads of black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, underbrush and forest floor, medium to full body, and a long finish. This is impressive Pinot Noir to drink now or cellar for a decade or more. —Robert M. Parker, Jr., February 2016

    2013 Damaris Reserve Chardonnay

    Reminiscent of baked apple tart, opulent fruit provides richness and concentration equally buoyed by lemony acidity. Vanilla and honey make appearances on the palate before structured crispness forms on the finish. The wine is a blend from the Sangiacomo and Rodgers Creek vineyards. —Virginie Boone, December 2015

  • Wine Advocate 91 POINTS

    2013 Grand Detour Pinot Noir

    The 2013 Pinot Noir Grand Detour is a Sonoma Coast selection showing a dense ruby/plum color, plenty of black cherry, wild strawberry, raspberry notes, earth, spice, and a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel. This is terrific Pinot as well that will merit drinking over the next 5-6 years. —Robert M. Parker, Jr., February 2016

    2013 Grand Detour Pinot Noir

    From a mix of vineyards within the vast Sonoma Coast, this wine offers dark color, tannic proportions, sizable oak and a touch of black pepper and anise, bringing out rich, bold, full-bodied flavor. Concentrated and dense in wild strawberry compote, it finishes in dried herb. —Virginie Boone, December 2015
