2018 Ron Noble Petaluma Gap "Estate" Pinot Noir
Rated 92-Points - Wine Enthusiast
The Ron Noble 2018 Petaluma Gap "Estate" Pinot Noir is all of that and more. I have it open here in front of me and it features gorgeously pure and succulent aromatics and a finesse-driven richness that will make you come back for glass after glass. Huge, sexy yum factor here but its well supported by a fantastic structure (you know I am all about structure). Retails for $68/bottle at the winery.

Lot 367 | 2018 Russian River Valley Chardonnay
Lot 367 2018 Russian River Valley Chardonnay is from the same producers as Lot 247 and 258. We were offered this wine late in summer and bottled it into shiners on September 1st. 

Stylistically, this wine is quite similar to Lot 247 with perhaps a bit less new French oak (30% vs 40%) and lower alc. at 13.5%. It is a beautiful wine and an insane insane deal at $159/case DELIVERED!

For the uninitiated, here is the original producer release with tasting notes adjusted.

Chardonnay Lovers: its time to back up the truck!

I'll be honest, I bought this for a song; however, I am passing the savings along to you.

The winery was a little backed up and had the wine stored offsite. The offsite location needed it out and the winery offered us a hot price to make it go away. Pretty much the same way we got our hands on Lot 239, actually. Same vintage as well, 2018, but the wine has been stored perfectly.

The producer is a small Russian River boutique winery that sells primarily though its tasting room/mailing list and on-premise restaurant accounts so, like most small producers with $40/bottle Chardonnay, they got a little backed up during COVID shutdowns.

With it's California "sunshine in a glass" styling, this gorgeous wine is a right-up-the-middle rendition of Russian River Valley Chardonnay, bringing purity as well as richness from partial malolactic fermentation and well-integrated barrel support - it perfectly threads the needle between rich, ripe and complex elegance.

Trust me folks, this is top-quality, first-run RRV Chardonnay and it will have hugely broad appeal.

Only $159/case DELIVERED!

Pale yellow in the glass, this wine features a beautifully perfumed bouquet of lemongrass and lemon blossom underpinned with peaches and creme brulee. Lightly toasty and a little hazelnut comes on with air. Silky smooth on the palate and perfectly balanced with peach and vanilla and caramel flavors riding pretty, lemony minerality to a long, juicy finish that echoes with excellent persistence and purity. The oak is beautifully integrated throughout with classic Russian River Valley mineral providing energy and verve throughout.

100% Russian River Valley Chardonnay
