2013 Cobden Wini Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.7% alc., pH 3.71, TA 0.57, 90 cases, $40. Sourced from Hogan’s Run and Moore Family vineyards. Clones 667 and 777. Aged sur lie with monthly batonage for 11 months in 100% French oak barrels, 50% new. Unfined and unfiltered. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. Lovely aromas of fresh Bing cherries and forest floor. The oak-kissed, mid weight plus core of juicy black cherry and pomegranate fruit is full-flavored and pleasing. When tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, the wine was considerably more appealing with better oak integration and more polish. The wine packs a little heat on the finish. Score: 89. Reviewed April 20, 2015 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2011 Mueller Hogan’s Run Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.9% alc., 78 cases, $48. Named for the winery’s beloved black Labrador retriever, Hogan, this 6-acre hillside vineyard owned by Susie and Fred Sedlacek. Inaugural release from this vineyard. Clone 667. · Moderately dark reddish-purple hue in the glass. Very shy nose showing demure aromas of dark cherries and berries. The palate is well ahead of the nose, strutting a full-bodied, sappy core of very ripe black cherry fruit with a hint of cola and wood spice. The prodigious fruit is clothed in muscled tannins. Amazing persistence on the long, and I mean long, cherryinfused finish. Score: 91. Reviewed November 9, 2013 WINERY » ARTICLE »
