Back in 1995 Russell and Victoria were dating and their favorite game was “guess the wine”. After that they started taking regular trips to California’s wine country meeting some of the best winemakers. Soon they were searching for property in California. It was Kal Showket (Heidi Barrett was his winemaker) who helped develop their estate vineyard and also “gave” Russell 1 ton of his estate Cabernet and the rest…. is history. From their on out Russell has produced a bunch of 100 point and many more 94-99 pointers! I am proud to introduce 2 new Pinot Noirs from his portfolio that will wow your senses!!

Winemaker’s Notes: “If you have opened one of our 2013 Rita’s you know how unique this wine is. The nose is all about roasted meats, dark cherry and sassafras. Plush and round, the tannins are very refined, but always present. The incredibly steep hills that this wine comes from, produces only 1 to 1 ½ tons per acre. The vines are so stressed, that each cluster weighs less than half of what our Sonoma County clusters weight. The resulting wine ends up having an amazing intensity because of it.”
Parker Review of the 2013 – 95 Points: “The 2013 Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills is made from Clones 777, 115 and 667. This is a spicy, earthy Pinot Noir with notes of pomegranate, raspberry jam, loamy soil and sassafras. It is medium to full-bodied and completely different than the North Coast Pinots. Nevertheless, it is complex, but more Côtes de Beaune in orientation than his other offerings. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.”
