Today's release is the next vintage of one of our favorite Pinot Noirs, Lot 271 which scored 90-points. This next vintage, Lot 286 2010 Russian River Pinot Noir is even better than the last. Possible? Yes. The fruit from the 2010 vintage was fuller and rounder. Same intense aromas of dark plum and cherry-raspberry as 2009, now with a more dominant accent on the spice. The same oak regimen, combined with this luscious fruit delivers a smooth, rich wine with incredible value. Compare to a $45 Pinot Noir.
Our second release, Lot 269 2010 Santa Barbara Sauvignon Blanc is a delicious, mouthwatering wine and perfect for warmer weather. Beautifully aromatic with aromas of honeydew melon, bell pepper and kiwi fruit. The palate is all fruit, beautifully balanced and round on the midpalate, finishing with bright acidity. Perfect springtime wine.
