Argot Mosaic Pinot Noir is made from 100 percent Pinot Noir.
Sourced from both high-elevation and valley floor vineyards, located in the cool-climate AVAs of Sonoma Mountain, Bennett Valley and Petaluma Gap. A drama-free growing season allowed for a leisurely harvest of perfectly ripe, healthy fruit. Low-stress, clean ferments, led to an exceptionally pure Pinot Noir, laden with fruit, earth and spice.
"Medium ruby in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Mosaic has a pretty nose of pink peppercorn, herbs and dusty earth over a core of savory black fruit and spices. Medium-bodied, it gives good layers of flavors in the mouth with concentrated black fruits and loads of spice, grainy tannins to support and a long, lingering finish. Yum! 600 cases produced.. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown" - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue #237, June 2018), 92+ pts
Offering up a touch more freshness and detail, the 2011 Pinot Noir Rosella’s Vineyard is also upfront and textured, with ripe black cherry, rose garden and spring flower-like nuances all flowing to a medium-bodied, elegant and textured palate. There’s not a huge amount of back-end depth but it’s gorgeous nonetheless and I love the overall focus. It should shine for 4-5 years. Drink now-2018. This was an impressive (and large) lineup of wines. Made by the brother/sister pair, Brian and Kimberly Loring, with Rachel Silkowski functioning as assistant winemaker, these efforts never lack for fruit or texture and, for the most part, reward immediate gratification. Having said that, I think these 2011s will offer a relatively broad drink window. The 2012s are more rich and voluptuous, with the purity of fruit and seamlessness of the vintage.

Maysara Jamsheed Pinot Noir is made of 100 percent Pinot Noir
11 months in 10% new French oak barrels
According to ancient Persian legend, King Jamsheed was able to observe his entire realm by peering into his full wine goblet.
Beginning with a generous core of red-black fruits, the McMinnville AVA saunters over the palate with both bravado and grace. Blackberry and fresh cracked pepper entwine perfectly with matured and lengthy tannins on the finish. The depth of this unassuming bottling is always an adventure to mine. Some older prospectors hear tell of herbal notes… silver sage? rosemary?

Merriman Cummins Road Pinot Noir is made from 100 percent Pinot Noir.
An aroma of Five Spice and strawberry jam, plums, wild cherry and a hint of white pepper on the front to mid-palate. A creamy texture and dusty rose petal round out the wine at the finish.
Our second label, The Cummins Road, is made from the fruit from the middle to the bottom of the vineyard ridge. Handpicked and sorted, the clusters are allowed to cold soak for 15 days before fermenting, in order to extract color and increase palate weight. The wine is racked off after fermentation into second and third year French oak barrels, which allows the wine to slowly gain a fuller, rounder palate.
Cummins Road is made up entirely of our Block Three Dijon Clone 777 that brings us an unctuous - yet approachable - wine. Block Three is situated right below the Pommard and Wadensvil plantings which always make up the Merriman Estate blend.
Traditionally, this block is the first harvest pick of the vintage. It always delivers a wonderful freshness that highlights the bright, red plum, cherry fruit characteristics of the 777 clone with lively acids that make this one of the funnest Pinot Noir buys to make the scene in quite a while!
"Ruby-red. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red fruits, exotic spices and potpourri, backed by subtle woodsmoke and incense notes. Sweet, seamless and focused on the palate, offering intense raspberry liqueur, spicecake and cola flavors that are lifted by a spine of juicy acidity. Delivers a solid punch but comes off lithe; a suave candied rose note drives the gently tannic finish. - Josh Raynolds"

Striking with its inky red color and purple hues, a hallmark of a classic vintage. On the nose, briary black fruits are in abundance. Notes of Chinese five spice and currants also shine through. On the palate, blackberries and winter spice are evident. The generous and silky tannins in this wine support a long and complex finish.
