About

95

"A wonderfully hedonistic experience! Gorgeous aromas of sweet cherries, plum, and underbrush lead to a palate that is round and plush featuring soft, polished tannins. This seductive Pinot offers up ample red and dark fruit that is accentuated by spice and savory notes that is focused and well-structured with a long, elegant yet lively finish. Enjoy this stunner for the next 5 years."

92 Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Gorgeous aromas of underbrush, forest floor, seaweed, red and black currants, cherries and earth jump from the glass of the dark plum/garnet-colored 2010 Pinot Noir Ulises Valdez Vineyard. With a full-bodied texture, sweet tannins, broad, savory mouthfeel, and a terrific finish, this complex, earthy, Cote de Nuits-styled, seductive Pinot Noir is best drunk over the next 5-6 years."

Gary and Sasha Vaynerchuk loved this.
Robert Parker and the California Wine Advisors issued big scores as well.

The only issue? Very little of this wine was made.
We've got a few cases in stock today!

On a recent trip to Sonoma, we discovered an incredible opportunity to pick up a top flight Pinot Noir - made by one of the world's top winemakers - with ties to Paul Hobbs, Mark Aubert, Pahlmeyer, Thomas Brown and more.

This ultra premium Pinot Noir comes from one of California's hottest growers. Do the names Paul Hobbs, Mark Aubert and Thomas Brown (Schrader, Rivers Marie) ring a bell? If so, this project has a BIG tie in to all of these names. The key to the success here is Ulises Valdez, a man who has become the guy to know ... especially for the winemakers listed above. This is ultra premium, high quality fruit that is SUPER under the radar - only 225 cases of this wine were made. It's an amazing wine.
