Antonio Galloni Reviews the 2013 Vintage!

Wine critic Antonio Galloni had some great things to say on Vinous Media regarding our 2013 vintage.

2013 Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir- 92 points

“Silky, perfumed and beautifully expressive, the 2013 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard graces the palate with crushed raspberry, rose petal and lilac overtones. the open-knit, lilting Pinot delivers plenty of flavor intensity in a deceptively mid-weight style built on finesse. There is a lot to like.”

2013 Rita’s Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir- 92 points

“The 2013 Pinot Noir Rita’s Crown Vineyard is rich, pliant and sensual from start to finish, with a classic expression of Sta. Rita Hills generosity wrapped around a mid-weight frame. Dark red cherry, plum, spice and violet meld into the supple, voluptuous finish.”

2013 La Rinconada Vineyard Pinot Noir- 91 points

“Game, smoke, wild cherries, herbs and chalk hit the palate in the 2013 Pinot Noir La Rinconada Vineyard, a wine that shows the wilder side of the Sta. Rita Hills.”

2013 Durell Vineyard Pinot Noir- 93 points

“The 2013 Pinot Noir Durell Vineyard is gorgeous. Here the flavors are bold and juicy throughout….This is a fabulous showing from Gavin Chanin”

2013 Gap’s Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir- 90 points

“The 2013 Pinot Noir Gap’s Crown Vineyard lifts from the glass with sweet floral notes, tobacco and a hint of spice.”

2013 Sanford & Benedict Vineyard Pinot Noir- 93 points

“A sensual, expressive wines, the 2013 Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict Vineyard possesses gorgeous depth and richness. Sensual and inviting, the 2013 captures the essence of this great site.”

2013 Durell Vineyard Chardonnay- 90 points

“Apricot pit, earthiness, smoke and spices flesh out in the 2013 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard. ….The 2013 Lutum offers solid balance and plenty of appeal…”

2013 Gap’s Crown Vineyard Chardonnay- 92 points

“The 2013 Gap’s Crown Vineyard is the most pedigreed and complex of these wines. Although quite understated in style, the Gap’s Crown has a sneaky persistence to it.”
