2014 Hop Kiln Vineyard Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley – Carrying on the tradition of the 2013 vintage, this wine is a blend of both 777 and Pommard clones, and there's definitely a lot going on here! This wine was aged in a combination of 30% one-year used French oak barrels and 70% older French oak barrels for 11 months and bottled unfined and unfiltered in August 2014. It is dark ruby red in color and has flavors of cherries, raspberries, mocha and a touch of spice on the nose. The wine is medium-bodied yet intense as ripe tannins provide structure for a long, complex finish.
2014 "Block 21" Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley – Accolades: 93 Points, Wine Enthusiast. Using 100% Pommard clone from vineyard block 21, this Pinot is truly unique! The aromas and flavors that developed during the aging process were stellar, and the winemakers didn't want to mask it in any way. Therefore, they kept it as is with only one barrel of this wine being bottled, so quanities are extremely limited. It was aged 100% in a new French oak barrel for 11 months and bottled unfined and unfiltered in August 2014. Dark garnet in color, the wine has flavors of cola, black plum, blackberries and dark cherries with exquisite aromas of roasted nuts and spice on the nose. This wine is full-bodied and intense and has a long, complex finish. Definitely a wine to get lost in!
2014 "Complesso" Sauvignon Blanc, Russian River Valley – Complesso, or "complex," is exactly how to describe this wine. In addition to the neutral French oak and stainless steel, about 50% of this Sauvignon Blanc was aged in new French oak. Additionally, this wine has a bit of Viognier added, allowing it to stand up to its name. It is medium dark straw in color, and tropical fruit flavors of lychee, papaya and quinch are combined with French vanilla and toasted almond aromas. This wine is super silky with medium body and has a crisp, balanced finish.
