Several varieties are produced under different labels including Mossback (Pinot Noir), Matchbook, Sawbuck, and Chasing Venus. The single Mossback Pinot Noir I sampled was perfectly fine.

2006 Mossback Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., $22. · Perfumed nose that is very floral with hints of black cherries, Moroccan spices, oak toast and Chanel #5. Dark stone fruits dominant on the palate. Mouth-coating tannins and a floral lift on the finish. Decent. Reviewed November 2, 2008 ARTICLE »

2005 Mossback Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

(?alc. - couldn’t find on label), $26. This wine won a Gold Medal at the recent Sonoma Harvest event. · This is a very nice example of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. Sandalwood and red cherries perfume the wine leading to plenty of Bing cherry, coca-cola, and exotic spices. Very light on its feet, this Pinot finishes smoothly and clean. The whole package is nicely balanced. Nothing old-fashioned about this one. Reviewed April 30, 2007 ARTICLE »
