2016 RAEN ‘Home Field Vineyard’ Pinot Noir$110.00WA 94JS 97Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 94: Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Home Field Vineyard gives up notes of black tea, scorched earth, raspberries and wild blueberries with fragrant wafts of lilacs and rose hips plus a suggestion of charcuterie. Medium-bodied, intensely fruited and tightly wound, the palate is taut, muscular and lively with bags of energy down to the long, perfumed finish.James Suckling 97: This has impressive, fragrant complexity with an abundance of sweetly spiced red cherries and wild berries. Super expressive nose. The palate is seamlessly delivered with pristine red cherries and a smoothly layered texture that has been expertly crafted. Stunning Sonoma Coast pinot. Drink or hold.
2015 Dana Estate ‘Lotus Vineyard’ Cabernet Sauvignon$608.00WA 100JS 99JD 99Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 100: A barrel sample due to be bottled in January 2018, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Lotus Vineyard has a deep garnet-purple color and very primary black and blue fruit nose of warm plums, blueberries and black cherries plus hints of spice box and pencil shavings. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and firmly structured with ripe, grainy tannins, it has bags of depth and a very long, multilayered finish.James Suckling 99: Extremely complex aromas of iodine, dark fruit, oyster shell, forest floor and blackberries follow through to a full body. Great intensity and integrity. Tannins are chewy now. Excellent tannin quality.
2016 Clos Apalta$160.00WS 94WA 96JS 99VN 93Wine Spectator 94: Refined, with savory richness to the mineral-infused raspberry, red currant and herbal shadings. Creamy hints emerge midpalate, leading to a crisp, well-structured finish that lingers with slate and cast iron notes. Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.James Suckling 99: This is really focused and refined with fantastic dried flowers and dark berries. Dried-lavender and mint undertones. Medium-to full-bodied with refined and polished tannins that are all together and so focused. Really integrated and melted together on the palate. Compact and very linear. Please give this two or three years to come completely together, but it’s already breathtaking. Better to drink after 2022.
