2017 Patz & Hall Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir$33.00Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 90 ~ The 2017 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast was made with 100% whole cluster and aged in 45% new oak. Pale to medium ruby-purple, it has expressive aromas of red and black cherries, roasted cranberries, woodsmoke and orange peel with a classy frame of allspice-like new oak plus earth and charcuterie touches. It’s light to medium-bodied and silky with good intensity, mouthwatering acidity and grainy tannins, finishing long.
2018 Littorai ‘B.A. Thieriot Vineyard’ Chardonnay$96.00Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 94 ~ The 2018 Chardonnay B.A. Thieriot Vineyard is shy at this stage, offering touches of gunflint, saline and white blossom with notes of hazelnut, toast and quince. The medium-bodied palate takes its time to open to bright, tangy flavor layers in a rounded, satiny frame and with a long finish. Give this the time it deserves in bottle, as it's currently very shy.
2017 Occidental ‘Occidental Station Vineyard’ Pinot Noir$105.00Jeb Dunnick 96 ~ Coming from a more inland vineyard that’s one of the first to be harvested, the 2017 Pinot Noir Occidental Station Vineyard sports a deeper ruby/purple color as well as a tighter yet intense style carrying lots of almost blue fruits, violets, peppery spice, and spring flowers. Despite showing ample power and richness, it has a vivid spine of acidity, ripe, present tannins, and a great finish, all pointing to a solid decade or more of prime drinking. I think it will show every more complexity with a year or two of bottle age.
