ACCOLADES

• Owen Bargreen (93 Points)

"The 2019 ‘Il Rubino’ comes from several sites in the North Coast AVA. Stored in 45% new French oak, this offers very pretty red rose petals with orange zest and suggestions of cardamom on the nose. Very smooth and soft on the mouth, this is generous, downright delicious red fruit-driven wine that is best consumed now and over the next eight years. Drink 2022-2032."

• Wine Enthusiast Magazine (91 Points)

"Savory notes of rhubarb, green olives and cedar lend extra complexity to this medium-bodied and moderately tannic wine. A slightly tangy mouthfeel keeps it nicely balanced and appetizing" - Jim Gordon

Awards
"Spicy and seductive, this full-flavored and full-bodied wine layers cardamom, cinnamon and clove overripe strawberry and red-cherry flavors for a generous, mouthfilling effect." - 91 Points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
Vineyard Notes
An elegant and well-balanced blend of fruit from four of the best cool-climate Pinot Noir growing regions in the North Coast: Anderson Valley, Mendocino Ridge, Sonoma Coast, and Green Valley of Russian River Valley. Each location lends a subtle layering and complexity to the finished wine.
Winemaker Notes
The 2019 year has been one of contrasts and challenges in Northern California. A cool, very rainy winter with flooding in the North Coast, some mud-slides followed by hot spells, windy and inclement weather during bloom and flowering- just another average year! The cool spring, clear, sunny month of June and moderate temperatures through July and August allowed the vines to develop grapes in pristine conditions. By late summer things started to warm up, and continued through early September to bring sugars and the concentration of flavors to ideal levels...Overall the 2019 Vintage looks to be another fabulous year for wine!
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this versatile wine with stuffed mushrooms, chicken marsala, or duck confit.

This is an elegant Pinot Noir with restrained but still inviting spicy aromas. Flavors of red fruit sweep you into a smooth finish.

Fruity nose, with scents of cherry and strawberry. Good fruit flavor of red berries, but also fairly dry. A bit of a spicy finish, but not overwhelming. Well done on this Pinot!
