94The Wine Advocate

...intense, layered nose of mixed berry preserves, violet, oolong tea leaves, forest floor, moss-covered bark and mineral notions with touches of charcuterie, cracked cinnamon stick and amaro...light to medium-bodied and silky in the mouth with explosive flavor layers, a firm frame of pleasantly chewy tannins and lip-smacking acidity, finishing very long and layered.

94Wine Enthusiast

Rich, ripe and warmly spiced, this full-bodied wine is also firmly structured, with fine-grained tannins and subtle acidity. Luxurious aromas of cinnamon, clove and black cherry precede opulent fruit and oolong tea flavors.

94Jeb Dunnuck

...savory, earthy style in its blue and red fruits as well as lots of dried herbs...beautiful on the palate and is medium-bodied, has a balanced, elegant texture, and present yet ripe tannins.

92Wine Spectator

Very suave and well-knit, with concentrated blackberry, red currant and raspberry flavors that are richly spiced. Creamy midpalate, featuring a finish that lingers with chocolate mousse notes.


United States, California, North Coast, Mendocino County, Anderson Valley

Mendocino AVA was established in 1984 and amended in 1989. It includes numerous sub-appellations. Mendocino AVA is entirely within Mendocino County, and the AVA is known for its Mediterranean climate. Vintners successfully grow Carignan, Charbono, Grenache, Zinfandel, Petit Sirah and Syrah. In cooler parts of the region Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are also grown. Mendocino County is home to nearly 600 vineyards, and many have been certified organic for decades, thanks to the region’s famous “green and sustainable” approach to agriculture and nearly everything else. Mendocino was named for 16th century explorers, a pair of brothers whose last name was Mendoza. Winemaking, however, didn’t start until the 19th century when some would-be gold miners decided it was more profitable to make wine than to pan for gold. Italian immigrants in the late 19th century continued to establish winemaking ventures.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
