2013 Riverbench Estate Pinot Noir, Santa Barbara

2013 Riverbench Estate Pinot Noir, Santa Barbara

Best Buy! - Connoisseur's Guide to California Wine:
"handily surpasses a few of its high ticket cousins."

Very Good! Outstanding Value! - Wine Enthusiast

This pinot noir has always been a way to really showcase Riverbench Vineyard. Each year, they carefully select the clones and lots that will make up this wine so that it has the best qualities of all different parts of the property. The 2013 harvest was fast and furious, with everything coming into the winery in about ten days from start to finish. But they didn’t hurry this wine along; it received plenty of time in barrel to develop amazing complexity and deliciousness. The palate boasts juicy red fruit flavors, and a hint of the signature Riverbench smoke and clove. Try it with saucy barbecue or wild mushroom anything. (usual retail $30)

2010 47 Friends Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley, Sonoma County

Very Good! Outstanding Value! - Wine Enthusiast

A lovely nose, offering delicacy, finesse and complexity. You will not be disappointed in this Russian River Valley Pinot Noir! The fruit was sourced from long-standing vineyards in the appellation. The wine is a bright ruby color, with a lovely nose, offers delicacy and finesse, complexity and layers of fruit, excellent mouthfeel and a long, balanced finish.

This is a handmade wine made the same way the most expensive boutique wine is made--high quality grapes tested and weighed and sorted bin by bin, cold soak for extraction, fermented in a small, open-top tank with cap punched down, put in French oak barrels about 25% new.

Winemaker Notes: "Most of the grapes for this wine came from small vineyards near the little crossroads called Fulton, California, just off of River Road in the heart of the Russian River Valley. We had a rare opportunity to purchase this fruit and make this terrific wine and we jumped!" (usual retail $24)
