2014 Rodgers Creek Chardonnay – 93 pts

Wine Enthusiast (May 2017)

Beautifully floral in honeysuckle tones complemented by bright acidity, this white is textured and focused. Its layers of preserved lemon, lemongrass and key lime flavors are lifted by a flinty undertone and a hint of ginger on the finish.

 

2014 Rayhill Pinot Noir - 91 pts

Wine Advocate (April 2017)

“Pale to medium ruby in color, the 2014 Pinot Noir Rayhill Vineyard gives ripe cranberries, red currants and raspberry leaves notes over suggestions of mossy bark, dried leaves, Provence herbs and lavender. The medium-bodied palate provides a great intensity of red berry, earth and herbal flavors, marked by grainy tannins and ample freshness, finishing long and layered.” – Robert Parker

Wine Advocate (April 2017)

“The 2014 Chardonnay Lorenzo Vineyard offers aromas of green mangos, honeydew melons and golden delicious apples with touches of cedar, toast and butterscotch. Medium-bodied, the palate gives a good concentration of tropical and melon flavors with a lively backbone and suggestion of viscosity, finishing long and toasty.” – Robert Parker

 

2014 Damaris Reserve Chardonnay – 91 pts

Wine Advocate (February 2017)

The 2014 Damaris Reserve Chardonnay displays a nose of ripe apricots, musk melon and marzipan with hints of butterscotch and brioche. Medium-bodied with a touch of appealing oiliness to the texture, it delivers a great concentration of flavors, carrying through to a delicious butternut finish.

 

2014 Grand Detour Pinot Noir – 91 pts

Wine Advocate (February 2017)

Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir Grand Detour displays pretty rose and violet notes with a core of red currants and Bing cherries, plus hints of Provence herbs and loam. Medium-bodied, the palate reveals a nice interplay between the floral, berry and earth characters, supported by fine-grained tannins and finishing with a spring in its step.

 

2014 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir – 92 pts

Wine Enthusiast (February 2017)

Baked plum, underripe raspberry and cola aromas meet with roasted meats, strong fennel, composting flowers and pencil shavings on the complex nose of this appellation blend. The palate is just as hearty, with thyme, anise, marjoram and Indian spice giving depth to the rounded cranberry base. Bitter orange rind and tangy green-olive touches push it even deeper.

2014 Rayhill Pinot Noir – 92 pts

Wine Enthusiast (December 2016)

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.

 

2014 Damaris Reserve Chardonnay – 91 pts

Wine Enthusiast (December 2016)

“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.”

 

2014 Escolle Road Pinot Noir – 94 pts

Wine Enthusiast (December 2016)

Sandalwood and smoke kick off the nose on this deliciously complex bottling that also shows aromas of black-plum skin, crushed slate and light fennel on the nose. Tangy cranberry and pomegranate make for a fresh entry to the sip, and then come herbal touches of white sage, bay leaf and peppercorn.

 

2014 Grand Detour Pinot Noir – 90 pts

Wine Enthusiast (December 2016)

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.

 

2014 Damaris Reserve Chardonnay – 89 pts

Wine Spectator (December 2016)

Fans of smoky, toasty oak will find this alluring, as the wood adds flavor, texture and nuance to the core of grapefruit, citrus, peach and nectarine notes. Drink now. 644 cases made. –JL        

 

2014 Hilliard Bruce Chardonnay – 91 pts

Wine Enthusiast (December 2016)

Dried apples, a touch of lime zest, fresh chamomile and a ripe nectarine-flesh element show on the nose of this bottling. The palate plays to the citrus side of the grape, with underripe tangerine and tangy lime forming laser-sharp focus across minerally chalky touches.

 

2014 Rayhill Pinot Noir – 90 pts

Wine Spectator (December 2016)

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. 408 cases made. –JL

 

2014 Overlook Chardonnay – 90 pts

Wine Spectator (July 2016)

Alluring aromas of smoky, toasty oak and rich flavors of fig, apricot and melon give this an appealing, drink-me-now character. Drink now. 32,500 cases made. –JL

2014 Kosich Pinot Noir – 91 pts

Wine Advocate (March 2016)

“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.”

 

2013 Rayhill Pinot Noir - 94 pts

Wine Advocate (March 2016)

“Absolutely sensational Pinot Noir, the 2013 Pinot Noir Rayhill Vineyard shows a lavish amount of red and black fruits, spice box, forest floor and underbrush. It is full-bodied, rich, sexy and lush. This is a big-time winner and highly recommended. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.” – Robert Parker

 

2013 Rodgers Creek Chardonnay – 90 pts

Wine Advocate (March 2016)

The third Chardonnay, the 2013 Chardonnay Rodger's Creek Vineyard is from a coastal site. The wine has slightly more minerality than the other two, lemon honey, orange rind, crisp acidity, white peach and honeyed citrus notes. This is full-bodied, nicely structured, rich Chardonnay that should age well for 5-8 years.

 

2013 Grand Detour Pinot Noir – 91 pts

Wine Advocate (March 2016)

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.
