Enticing Russian River “White Bordeaux”

“Les pierres qui décident”
~The rocks that decide~

Shared Notes is the winemaking joint-venture between wife and husband, Bibiana Gonzalez Rave (Pahlmeyer, Wayfarer winemaker) and Jeff Pisoni (Pisoni, Lucia winemaker). Both had early desires of making wine, and spent most of their lives doing so. The year 2012, however, marked the first vintage that they produced together. Previously, during the grape harvest, Bibiana and Jeff were like the proverbial ships passing in the night. Early grape picks and late nights at the winery left them rarely crossing paths. Now, Bibiana and Jeff do cross paths—to discuss ideas and taste samples. You can sometimes catch them in front of a grapevine, the press, a fermenting tank, or a barrel… most likely with a glass in hand.

This wine is both beautifully delicate and intense at the same time. The 2017 “Les pierres qui décident” is a focused and pure Sauvignon Blanc from two vineyards located in the heart of Sonoma County.  Aging was carried out in oak barrels and on the lees with minimal stirring.  The nose is extremely fragrant with notes of floral perfume, green apple, citrus oil and the classic bud of the cassis plant.  The palate is energetic and powerful, with lots of minerality, salinity, and a core for refreshing acidity.  This wine drinks great now, but can also cellar for at least a decade. Only 4 barrels of this wine were produced.

Winemaker Notes: “Enticing complexity meets dazzling linear acidity in the 2017 Les pierres qui décident.  Crisp granny smith apple, zesty lemon, and mouthwatering lemon meringue pie give way to a hint of lightly toasted French oak to tease your palate.  The long, persistent finish leaves you with the perfumed taste of bourgeon de cassis characteristic to this style of Sauvignon Blanc”
