Product Description

Ferren Pinot Noir Silver Eagle Vineyard is made from 100 percent Pinot Noir.

Winemaker Matt Courtney learned what he knows of Pinot Noir on the Sonoma Coast during his eight-year apprenticeship with Helen Turley of Marcassin Vineyards. At Ferren he employs artisan methods crafting his wines in small lots from single-vineyard sources with native fermentation and without fining or filtration. | Falling Bright

Silver Eagle Vineyard rests atop Stoetz Ridge, the land mass that divides the remote Sonoma Coast from the Russian River Valley. This vineyard experiences both the cooling ocean breezes of the nearby Pacific, as well as the warmth of the interior valley. The wine made from this unique confluence of climates is extraordinary: the Pinot Noir a rare balance of explosive wild berry, mouthwatering acidity, and rich, polished tannins; the Chardonnay a fascinating juxtaposition of briny minerality and candied citrus. [ The late Ulises Valdez - brilliant vineyard manager and owner of this vineyard - built his family home on this spectacular site.] | Ferren

Review:

All destemmed and aged 18 months in one-third new French oak, the 2017 Pinot Noir Silver Eagle Vineyard has a fresher, more edgy texture to go with a medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated style on the palate. It's more backward and tight, especially when compared to the Sonoma Coast release, yet still has beautiful notes of black raspberries, wild strawberries, violets, sappy herbs, and a touch of forest floor. Give it a year, and it's going to have a decade of prime drinking. 

-Jeb Dunnuck 95+ Points



"Refined and elegant, with a lithe, creamy texture to the dried red fruit and berry flavors, lengthening out with forest forest floor notes. The fine-grained, minerally finish shows leafy accents and hints of sandalwood. Drink now through 2025.—K.M.”

"Shimmering garnet. Aromas of cherry, blueberry, candied flowers, tobacco and coconut pick up a smoky overtone with air. Smooth and fleshy on the palate, offering ripe red and blue fruit, mocha, cola and spicecake qualities that tighten up on the back half. Finishes long and supple with repeating spiciness, even tannins and a lingering suggestion of red berry preserves.

Pinea 17 2017

Pinea 17 is made from 100 percent Tempranillo

A 100% Tempranillo red wine, elegant and with a long and persistent finish. The personality of the Ribera del Duero and the passion of its craftsmen are reflected in every sip of 17.

The vines selected for the production of this wine are more than 30 years old and belong to some vineyards that are located in the highest areas of ​​the Ribera del Duero, around 3,050 feet elevation.

The weather and the altitude of the area make our grape productions smaller than in the rest of the region, but the grapes we obtain are of higher quality and with a more concentrated flavor. These are the characteristics that demand the grape to give its best, helping us to produce a wine that reflects the personality of the Ribera del Duero.

17 celebrates the year 2017, a very important year in the life of our winery due to the major events that took place then, including the commercial debut of our flagship wine, PINEA. reflects the careful attention to detail in viticulture that characterizes our winery; by aging in American and French oak barrels for 18 months, the Tempranillo grapes express a sense of origin that is a worthy reflection of the Ribera del Duero

"17" by Pinea captures the elusive combination of intense concentration and lifted, complex aromatics that distinguishes the best Ribera del Duero wines. The lifted aromatics and elegant, supple body of "17" by Pinea is particularly appealing and a departure from the more aggressive, heavily extracted style typically found in wines from the region. To enhance the perfumed aromatics, decant for about 30 minutes before serving at a cool 60 degrees and use a Burgundy stem. Enjoy now and in the next 10-15 years with hearty dishes like lamb-chops, any kind of steak and game food and as stated by Master Sommelier Ian Cauble: "celebrate getting in on the ground floor of one of Spain's most exciting new wine ventures."

Appereance: The wine displays an opaque garnet-red core with hints of light purple at the rim.

Nose: The nose is regal and highly perfumed, expressing the classic fruit profile of Tempranillo with its own unique finesse very reminiscent of fine Burgundy. Black forest fruits, plum, and blueberry dominate with hints of light accents of vanilla, cacao nibs and cedar playing a supporting, background role.

Palate: The palate broods with fresh plum and berry compote laced with high-toned red fruits. The wine has broad shoulders, but also soft edges with chalky tannins and a lively mineral acidity driving a long and supple finish.

Review:

Bodegas Pinea, a new entry in Ribera del Duero, is off to an excellent start.  Founded just this decade, their first release of their flagship wine, Pinea, was in 2017, which gave rise to the name of this wine, 17, their second label.  Brimming with spice and dark fruit flavors, it’s a terrific second wine.  Made entirely from Tempranillo, it’s certainly big, but not boisterous or overdone.  Its depth nicely balances its 14.8 percent stated alcohol, keeping it in check.  To be sure, it’s a winter kind of wine, perfect for hearty roast or a leg of lamb.  This is not a before-dinner sipper.  For all its power, it is not heavy or over-the-top.  An uplifting raciness keeps it going throughout a meal.  An attractive hint of tar-like bitterness in the finish balances its fruitiness.  I just wish they’d ditch the overly heavy bottle.  The wine speaks for itself.

Chavy-Chouet Meursault Les Casse Tetes 2018

Chavy-Chouet Meursault Les Casse Tetes is made from 100 percent Chardonnay.

A "casse tête" in French is a conundrum or puzzle and the name of this plot refers to the hardness of the soil and the challenge it was for our ancestors to plant vines on this pebbly limestone ground.
Surface Area : 1.5 acres (0.6 hectares)
Age of the vines: 45 years old
Planting density : 10,000 vines per hectares
Soil Type : Limestone
Tasting notes: Concentrated, powerful, and lively, Les Casse-Têtes is the very quintessence of the Meursault appellation. Its sophistication, structure, and assured elegance reflect the character of the soil.

The 2018 Meursault Les Casses-Têtes comes from vines on rocky soils, less decomposed than other climats, where Romaric Chavy explained it is crucial to pick at exactly the right time. This has an intense bouquet of crushed stone, orange peel and light oyster shell aromas. The palate is taut and fresh on the entry, delivering a fine bead of acidity and tangerine and light mango notes, and spicier than the Les Narvaux, with a little more cohesion on the persistent finish. This is superb.

When young, the Riesling Rosacker has a racy, firm temperament with a sharp, peppery aroma that mellows with age. The wines reveal full strength over time, expanding in depth, unveiling complex, yet subtle mineral flavors, which are characteristic of Rieslings from great terroirs.

TERROIR The terroir is heavy limestone and marl with light layers of sandstone.

CÉPAGES Riesling : 100% SPECIFICATIONS Residual Sugar (g/l): 7.7 g/l pH: 3.2 Acidity (g/l): 6 g/l

SERVING Can be aged 10-15 years. Store on side between 10-15°C. Ideally served between 8-10°C.

Review:

"Juicy lively tangerine notes dominate on the inviting nose. On the palate this juicy tanginess continues with constant veering between fruity richness of ripe flesh and zesty tart peel. There is an underlying freshness here that shines through all of the fruitful generosity and fills mouth and mind with swirling clouds of ripe citrus. The finish is dry, the body is concentrated and intense, the structure is of vivid freshness. Lovely now, certain to evolve. Drink now through 2038." Anne Krebiehl,

Bydand Pinot Noir Umino Vineyard 2017

Bydand Pinot Noir Umino Vineyard is made from 100 percent Pinot Noir.

This small, sustainably farmed vineyard perches on a south-facing ridge in the Sebastopol Hills area of the esteemed Russian River Valley AVA, and has produced exceptional Pinot Noir for Bydand since their first vintage. Third-generation farmer David Umino rejected early assessments that the site was too cool for viticulture, and planted Pinot Noir there in 1996. The cold maritime winds in fact help to modulate ripening, and protect the grape’s natural purity and balance - resulting in fruit-driven wines with expressive red fruit and dark berry flavors, balanced with crushed rock and mouth-watering freshness. Velvety tannins coat the palate, providing an alluring and persistent finish.



This site combines the best of the earthy west Sonoma Coast and well-fruited Russian River.


Review:

"Dark and rich in blackberry and cherry, this wine is lightly dusted in cardamom and cinnamon, with bold intensity and lasting richness. The site shows through in its elegance
and power. - VIRGINIE BOONE"

Kynsi Pinot Noir Precious Stone Stone Corral Vineyard 2013

The Stone Corral Vineyard is planted on a southeast slope on the west side of the Edna Valley which has an east/west orientation opening up to the Pacific Ocean from Morro Bay and Pismo Beach. Approximately 120 to 300 feet above sea level, the climate is strongly influenced by the ocean providing ideal temperate growing conditions for Pinot Noir. Early spring warming, mild summer temperatures and late arriving cold fall temperatures and rain provide a long growing season for the development of rich color, concentrated and complex flavors. Soil profiles vary between blocks from sand, sandy loam, loamy sand, pebbly sandy clay loam, all fine angular blocky , including decomposing sandstone layers and numerous fossil rocks. The soils are well drained and marine in origin, resulting in an elegant Pinot Noir with extraordinary attributes.

 

This gem is a blend of a few precious, select barrels hailing from the finest blocks of Stone Corral Vineyard. Offers blue-toned fruit on the nose and a pretty bouquet of black raspberry, sandstone, marzipan and wild lupine flowers. Opulent, yet delicate on the palate, with velvety layers of cola nut, cherry, dried herbs and pecan sandie cookies.

Pike Road Temperance Hill Pinot Noir 2017

Pike Road Temperance Hill Pinot Noir is made from 100 percent Pinot Noir

Tasting Notes

Bright, spicy cherry fruit is framed by beautiful floral and exotic spice tones. Don't be fooled by its bright red color, this is not a simple or wimpy wine. Lots of layers are woven into this beautifully exotic Pinot Noir with a silky, elegant finish.

About Temperance Hill Vineyard

This second-generation vineyard was first planted in 1981 on what is believed to be the remnants of an ancient volcano. Exposed to the cold Van Duzer winds at an elevation between 660 and 860 feet, Temperance Hill is one of the cooler sites in the Willamette Valley. Soil types are Nekia, Rittner, and Jory with varying slopes and exposures making it a very complex vineyard site. Temperance Hill is an organically farmed vineyard that uses certified Salmon-Safe methods.

The 2017 Vintage

2017 brought us back to what we consider a classic, cool-climate Oregon vintage, a year when our decades of experience paid off. Wet spring weather led to a more typical growing season compared with the past three vintages, all unusually hot. The summer of 2017 was warm and dry, leading to excellent flavor development in the fruit, but we thinned the crop considerably to ensure concentration and ripeness. Harvest was staggered because of the October rains, which meant long days for our crew during the windows of sun. 2017 wasn’t an easy year to farm, but the fresh, fully developed flavors of the vintage make it worth the hard work.

Review:

Pale ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir Temperance Hill Vineyard opens with charcuterie, cranberries, red currant and wild blackberries with accents of amaro, earth and potpourri. It’s light to medium-bodied with floral-tinged fruits, a firm frame and juicy freshness, finishing long and spiced. 200 cases produced.
