95 points Jeb Dunnuck
A crazy good value, the 2017 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley is the appellation release from this team, and it comes from all of the estate vineyards across the Green Valley, Laguna Ridge, and Sebastopol regions. Complex notes of strawberries, cranberries, violets, pine forest, and flowers all flow to a medium-bodied Pinot Noir that has a kiss of salinity and marine notes, ripe tannins, and a great finish. This beautiful wine competes with wines costing 2-3 times the price.

RP88 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 28th Apr 2017
“The 2016 Gewurztraminer comes from vines planted back as far as 1987. It has a composed and pure bouquet that expresses the variety with style: Lychee, white peach and hints of tinned apricot flowing from the glass. The palate is well balanced with orange sorbet and mango notes on the entry. The 10 grams per liter of residual sugar making this very seductive and easygoing, although the acidity keeps everything in balance. Drink over the next 4-5 years.”

Vibrant ruby violet in color, the 2015 Oppenlander Vineyard Pinot Noir embodies the classic, brooding dark fruit and earth of Mendocino Pinots, but with the startling concentration and intensity found only in such historic vineyard sites as this. On the nose, it leads with loamy mushroom, jammy berry and soft cedarwood – all notes that harken to the own-rooted vines in heavy clay soil. The palate follow suit and does not disappoint: primary flavors of pomegranate and bing cherry quickly recede, setting the show for sweet aged leather, dark chocolate, violets and dusty minerality. Soft, yet chewy tannins balance the cool-climate acidity and bring the wine into balance. Complex and layered, this bottling promises to reward those who can wait 5-8 years in order for the wine to mature and fully realize the intensity and concentration of the site.
