Arnot-Roberts Syrah Clary Ranch 2017, 0.75L
Syrah from Sonoma Coast, California

"The 2017 Syrah Clary Ranch is striking. Deep and resonant on the palate, the 2017 has so much to say. Some of the angular edges and intense savoriness the Clary Ranch can show have been soften by the intense heat of the year. Silky, fine tannins wrap around a core of dark cherry, plum, lavender, spice and pepper. A Syrah of power and structural intensity, the Clary Ranch is incredibly distinctive, and that is in a lineup in which many of the wines are exceptional. Two thousand-seventeen is a superb vintage for the Clary Ranch Syrah." 96 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Cobb Chardonnay Doc's Ranch Joann's Block 2018, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Sonoma Coast, California

"The 2018 Chardonnay Doc's Ranch: JoAnn's Block is a very distinctive wine. Dried flowers, mint, sage, chamomile, apricot, crushed rocks and almond are nicely layered. The 2018 is intensely mineral and savory, while the fruit is very much pushed into the background." 93 Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Cobb Pinot Noir Coastlands Vineyard Diane Cobb 2019, 0.75L
Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast, California

"The 2019 Pinot Noir Diane Cobb Coastlands Vineyard has a medium ruby color and pure, layered scents of raspberry jam, tobacco leaves, lemon peel, pencil shavings and saline. The light-bodied palate is chalky and refreshing, with detailed, mineral-laced berry fruits and a very long finish with expansive floral and spice tones." ​97 Points, Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate

Cobb Pinot Noir Coastlands Vineyard Old Firs Block 2019, 0.75L
Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast, California

"Medium ruby, the 2019 Pinot Noir Coastlands Vineyard Old Firs Block has singular scents of conifer, wilted lilac, orange peel and crushed cranberries, with accents of lemon peel and black tea leaves. The palate offers ultra perfumed, delicately styled strawberry and raspberry fruits, a fine, dusty texture, seamless freshness and a long, spicy finish. It’s a delicate expression that will be great for earlier drinking." 96 Points, Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate

Cobb Pinot Noir Emmaline Ann Vineyard 2019, 0.75L
Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast, California

"The 2019 Pinot Noir Emmaline Ann Vineyard was made with 50% whole clusters and matured for 22 months in 40% new French oak. It is delicate and broody on the nose at this stage, with a core of raspberry fruit and accents of saline, seaweed, cracked pepper and violet. The light-bodied palate is delicate, grainy and fresh, with layer after layer of detailed fruits and a latent finish that hints at more to come as this matures in bottle." 96 Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate

DuMOL Syrah DuMOL Estate Vineyard 2016, 0.75L
Syrah from Sonoma Coast, California

"Even better, and a dead ringer for a top Cornas from the likes of Pierre-Marie Clape or Allemand, the 2016 Syrah Estate Vineyard comes from a tiny 1.5-acre vineyard on the Sonoma Coast. Meaty, peppery, bloody, and incredibly complex, with lots of black olive, cracked peppercorns, smoke, and ripe, dark Syrah fruit, it has building tannin, awesome mid-palate depth, and a remarkable purity, elegance, and balance about it that’s going to keep it drinking beautifully for 10-15 years." ​97 Points, Jeb Dunnuck

Marcassin Pinot Noir Marcassin Vineyard 2013, 0.75L
Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast, California

"The 2013 Pinot Noir Marcassin Vineyard doesn’t have quite the drama, depth of flavor or profound depth of the 2012. This dark plum/ruby-colored wine offers displays crisp acids as well as notes of Chinese black tea and orange rind, and builds incrementally in the mouth to a medium to full-bodied finish. By Marcassin standards, it’s just a brilliant wine rather than a compellingly great one. What an extraordinary tasting this was at the Marcassin winery just north of Santa Rosa in Sonoma County. Just when you think the duo of Helen Turley and John Wetlaufer can’t make greater wines, they bowl over the taster with an array of exquisite quality that really must be tasted to be believed. Marcassin was probably California’s greatest Chardonnay after the famous Chalone winery fell from the pinnacle and onto hard times in the 1980s (and it has yet to rebound). Moreover, Marcassin set the bar for great Pinot Noir as well. And while both their Chardonnay and Pinot Noir have many competitors these days (from the likes of Harford Court, Mark Aubert, Kistler, Kongsgaard, DuMol, Thomas Brown, Peter Michael, Martinelli and Luc Morlet, to name a few), John Wetlaufer and Helen Turley remain the reigning geniuses of these two varietals in California. Certainly, their meticulous attention to detail in both the vineyard and in the winemaking and élevage account for the quality, but they were among the pioneers who saw the unlimited potential from the Sonoma Coast, now a relatively crowded neighborhood. This was a remarkable tasting that simply blew me away, and I have been following their wines since the first Marcassins were made in the early 1990s. By the way, any doubts about aging potential should be crushed immediately, as even in the most challenging vintages in California, Marcassin Chardonnays and Pinots have aged as well as, if not better than just about any grand cru white Burgundy. For example, 1995 and 1996 Chardonnays, particularly those from the Lorenzo Vineyard, are incredibly youthful and dynamic, and the Marcassin Estate Pinot Noir, even from vintages such as 1998, is simply amazing. The three Chardonnays tasted include two perfect wines. Perhaps the closest comparison is not to anything made in California, but a Corton-Charlemagne in a top vintage from the famous Jean François Coche-Dury." 94 Points Robert Parker

Martinelli Pinot Noir Bella Vigna 2019, 0.75L
Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast, California

"The 2019 Bella Vigna Pinot Noir is alluring in the nose with aromas of Bing cherry and raspberry. The palate is full of flavor including ripe cherries and cinnamon that linger in the finish." ​Winery Notes

"Silky and luxurious, with wild shocks of cinnamon and nutmeg, this lush, full-bodied wine is riddled in rich layers of strawberry and boysenberry. It holds its weight and breadth well, showing underlying acidity that winds its way into the foundational structure." WE 93
