LAST CALL 4  this AMAZING  96 Point “Belly-of-the-Whale” by the Winemaker-of-the-Year

Bibiana González Rave is the founder and winemaker of Cattleya Wines. She is also the wife of star winemaker Jeff Pisoni. Born and raised in Colombia and trained as a winemaker in France, she moved to California in 2007 to settle into making extraordinary wines. In her words: “Since my early teenage years, my dream has been to make wine. At a very young age I was fortunate enough to begin learning how to make wine in France. I trained myself while working with some amazing winemakers who showed me the importance of loving the land, how to respect the farming itself, and to focus on the many details that go into making each drop of wine in each and every bottle.” She also made the wines at Pahlmeyer, and produces “Shared Notes” wines with husband Jeff Pisoni. All those ingredients together and you have one of the best winemakers in the country!

Jeb Dunnuck 96 Points: “Pouring a deep ruby with purple highlights, the 2021 Pinot Noir Belly Of The Whale is pure with black raspberry liqueur, pepper spice, and lifted menthol and pine. Full-bodied and ripe with notes of blackberry preserve, crushed purple flowers, blue fruit, and tea leaf, it’s generous, rounded, and fleshy with ripe fruit. Drink 2025-2035.”

Bibiana’s Notes: “Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir in its grandest form, this is an extraor­dinary wine that has only just begun to tip its hand one what lies ahead. Notes of fig jam, macerated dark berries, sandalwood, and Asian spice waft upward, while the palate is coated with a luscious profile of Bing cheny, plum, and clove; all indica­tive of the coastal influences of the legendary site form which this wine was born. Elegant and approachable in its youth, this wine's backbone of life-giving acidity and fine-grained tannin ensure it has its best years on the distant horizon. “
