Our 2019 Big Bend Chardonnay from the Sonoma Coast expresses beautiful stone fruit aromas of white peach and scents of juicy melon that leap from the glass. The complimentary oak spice, hints of vanilla, toasted nuts and caramel support the judicious fruit. The richness of the wine boasts flavors of white pear, green apple and kiwi which give it an elegant balance that is seamless from start to finish.
You are first introduced to crushed red fruit, with plum skin with a hint of brown sugar coming forward as the aroma evolves. On first taste the entrance is soft and rich with toasted oak, blueberries and a touch of rose water. The mouthfeel is full with a medium long finish.
Vinous on approach with wild briar patch red fruit. These aromas blend into the flavors further enhanced with ripe raspberry, leather and toasted brioche on the long finish. A warm and wild Carignane that will benefit from decanting for one hour prior to serving.
Anderson Valley in the heart of Mendocino County has long been a favorite location of ours for Pinot Noir. Since 2001 we’ve sourced fruit from some of the most sought after vineyards in the area. The Hein Vineyard, Savoy and Day Ranch, just to name a few. In 2020 we sourced the fruit for Black Bird Pinot from two separate locations. The wine displays the complexity the valley is known for with a core of dark concentrated fruit, complemented by the nuanced aromatics that are reminiscent of a more “old world” style Pinot Noir. It yields a wine that is elegant and complex, brimming with floral aromas of violets, dried rose petals and gamey scents of wet earth.
The wine opens gracefully on the palate with lavish mouth filling black cherry, red licorice and spice notes. Black tea essence, piquant dried raspberries and a hint of cedar emerge in the lengthy finish which is broadened by the moderate tannins of the wine. While it pairs beautifully with a variety of foods, we find it especially intoxicating with smoked meats and anything “gamey” off the grill.
The wine is drinking wonderful at release, but Anderson Valley has always produced wines that age beautifully for 5-8 years in the bottle. This wine will be no exception.
The 2020 Red Birds' aromatics express rich notes of freshly picked Bing cherries, dried rose petals and a hint of sandalwood. Tart pie cherry and red plum interplay with baked cinnamon and a touch of earthiness on the palate. The wine is complex, well balanced and will continue to develop as it ages in the bottle over the next few years.
Owned and farmed by our old friend and long-time Roessler Lover, Mike Cooper, the Bogey is a rustic, ripe and lovely mountain grown Pinot Noir. With its southern exposure, affording views all the way to the Bay Bridge, cool winds come off the San Pablo Bay and make for extra hang-time and gentle slow flavor development.
Right out of the glass, the 2017 Bogey Pinot Noir expresses scents of blackberry and plum that intermingles with a slight hint of potting soil. The delicious flavors portray a harmony of dark cherry pie, fig and black tea that lingers through the long lived finish.
Originally thought to be too cold for Pinot Noir, this far deep-end Vineyard at the North Western boarder of the Anderson Valley really is pushing the limits of where our favorite grape will grow. This cold site requires excruciating attention to ensure even and slow ripening while keeping the elements at bay. The result? Nothing less than perfect. Whereas in other years, the aromas are a bit more on the red fruit and floral spectrum, the 2015 Hein has an unmistakable aroma of lightly roasted coffee, white pepper and gingerbread. The flavors are a sinilar blend of spice to pair with black fruit and an earth finish.
A beautiful dark ruby in color, the 2013 Sanford and Benedict Vineyard Pinot Noir immediately gives note of the signature earthy aromas of dried flowers and roasted herbs that are represented by fragrances of deep plum, raspberry and a touch of star anise. Once in the mouth, the wine's seamless texture shows the integration that comes with bottle aging. Medium bodied, the flavors of spicy plum, cranberry and rich cherry pie intermingle nicely with a touch clove and tobacco on the. The refreshing acidity of the wine is a major part of the lingering finish.
Lennox vineyard is a stunning site located in the cooler southwestern edge of the Russian River Valley, only 8 miles from the Pacific Ocean. The vineyard's owner, Dr. Alison Hannah, uses her biochemistry background to meticulously maintain the property with her father John. The 2017 Lennox Pinot Noir shows aromas of wild strawberries, bright cherry and cola. High toned red fruit and integrated oak flavors interplay nicely with ripe raspberry, red beet and dark cedar notes. The wine’s balanced texture is filling yet subtle with moderate tannins and bright acidity.
Our girl Sasha was more than just another winery dog. She brought joy to our lives each and every day and is missed dearly by all of us. It was fitting that the special fruit from one of our most valued winegrowers in the far reaches of the Sonoma Coast AVA became available to us in 2018. It allowed us to produce this special bottling in her honor. She is truly the Saint looking over us from above!
The wine’s beautiful dark garnet color gives way to briar patch aromatics. You’re first introduced to crushed black cherry, with plum skin and a hint of potting soil. The lush texture and rich mouthfeel delivers complex layers of blackberry, more Bing cherry and a touch of baking spice. Over the next few years, the wine will continue to become even more seamless, integrating the new French oak and showcasing its abundance of nuances.
Our Three Barrel Blend is a combination of our three favorite single vineyard Pinot barrels each vintage. The 2014 3BBL joins two barrels from a cool Sonoma Coast Vineyard and one barrel from a stunning Russian River site. The result is a beautifully layered and lush Pinot Noir that expresses elegant notes of blueberry, rosemary, and a touch of cedar. There is an intermingling of crisp acidity and concentrated fresh red berries, orange zest, and tea flavors that linger thru the extended finish.
The 2016 Wolf Run Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is resplendent with ripe plum and bittersweet chocolate leaping from the glass. A touch of dried sage and candied pecans add additional complexity to this voluptuous wine. On first impression, the texture is soft with velvety tannins that build for a backbone structure that carries the flavors to a long finish. Blackberry and cassis combine with the plum and herb suggesting a wonderful accompaniment to grilled meat rubbed with middle eastern brown spices. Expect this well proportioned wine to improve over the next 10 years.
