As I said previously, I know Ron from purchasing fruit from his vineyard and have always been a huge fan of the wines that Megan Baccitich (Paul Hobbs former Director of Winemaking) makes for him. Megan is incredibly talented, always nailing the right balance of richness, structure, depth and complexity.
This is the big brother to the 2018 Estate PN, which is a spectacular wine in it's own right. Same 100% estate, Petaluma Gap fruit source, but this is where winemaking and choosing the best lots really shines. Definitely a worthy upgrade from its sibling.
I was able to get my hands on 75 cases of this wine and am basically just marking it up a touch off of Ron's ex-cellars price to give you access. Sure, its pricier than your average dN offering but I assure you its worth it. Drink now and over the next 4-5 years.
Normally $95/bottle or well over $1,000/case, today I am offering this stellar wine at well over 50% savings at $499/case delivered or just $41+/bottle. Six-packs are available too.
95-Points -Connoisseur's Guide Selected from the estate vineyard’s best blocks and subject to a special cellaring regimen and barrel program that, among other things, includes a higher percentage of new oak, this stunning Pinot fully deserves its “Reserve” designation. While a close-to-voluptuous wine of enormous richness and fruity depth, it boasts the kind of complexity that compels contemplation, and it is impeccably balanced with the careful structure to age and age. It is, withal, a not-to-be-missed, tour de force offering from a winery to watch, and any extra effort its finding demands will be repaid many times over.
93-Points -Wine Advocate Medium ruby, the 2018 Pinot Noir Estate Reserve offers crushed red and black cherry fruit with nuances of bergamot, forest floor and loads of angostura bitters-like accents. Medium-bodied, it's concentrated, layered, silky and super fresh, finishing very long, lifted and floral. Pretty! 270 cases were made.
93-Points -Wine Enthusiast This reserve-level wine from a cool-climate site is weighty and robust in style, with a creamy texture and plenty of upfront fruit intensity. Brooding black cherry and wild strawberry layer over sumptuous notes of cardamom, nutmeg and clove.
