Petit Manseng (375ml)
Petit Manseng (375ml)

This crazy grape produces a Sauternes-style dessert wine in southern France in the regions of Jurançon and Pecherenc du Vic Bilh, a white wine appellation superimposed on Madiran, where I received my tutelage in postmodern winemaking techniques from my guru, Patrick Ducournau.

2007 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley)
2007 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley)

The Quail Ridge vineyard just north of Sebastopol is one of the most renowned Pinot Noir vineyards in the famed Russian River.

Such wines can have unbelievable longevity potential which is seldom exploited. This wine received eight years' aging in 20-year-old French oak and developed astonishing nuances, yet remains full of fresh black cherries that mark the Russian River.

2014 Saint Laurent (Ricci Vineyard)

This grape has very tight clusters and does poorly in humid climes like France, preferring high altitude where dry air and high UV suppress mold. It is widely planted in Austria and is the principal red grape of the Czech Republic, where it is known by its German name, Sankt Laurent. It matures very early, near the martyrdom date of Saint Lawrence of Rome, who was executed by Emperor Valerian on August 10 of the year 258 AD.

2007 Pinot Noir

The Lynmar Estate vineyard just north of Sebastopol is one of the most renowned Pinot Noir vineyards in the famed Russian River.

To create a complete wine, we decided to blend clone 115, a Dijon clone noted for tannin structure and cherry fruit, with Clone 667, from which we’d get perfume and spice. We were careful not to pick overripe so we could make a wine of freshness, energy and integrity which would age well.
