  • 2013 Raen Winery Pinot Noir Fort Ross - Seaview

    This is the first release from Raen (by the Mondavi brothers Dante and Carlo) so I was anxious to open one of my bottles. I was not disappointed! While this could benefit from some cellaring it was very approachable already. Cloudy crimson red in color, smoky notes, cool dried cherry flavors with a medium pepper finish. Definitely recommend it if you can get a few bottles.

  • 2011 Domaine Faury Syrah Vin de Pays des Collines Rhodaniennes

    Getting much more of the green notes on the finish, particularly black olives. Unfortunately I can't stand black olives so this just isn't doing it for me. I didn't even finish the bottle. Oddly I didn't get this from my other bottles but I do see it referenced in some tasting notes.

  • 2013 Raen Winery Pinot Noir Fort Ross - Seaview

    I haven't tasted yet...letting rest after shipment. I didn't find much info on these wines as this is their first release, so adding some background from the web:

    Fourth generation winegrowers, Dante and Carlo Mondavi were born and raised in the Napa Valley and cut their teeth in the family business. As winemakers and farmers they attribute a great deal of what they have learned to their grandfather Robert and father Tim, both who influenced them from a young age. But the enological influence didn't end there; when Robert Mondavi Winery was sold in 2004, the brothers joined their father Tim, Aunt-Marcia and Grandfather Robert, investing sweat equity to help found Continuum in 2005. Then, in 2013 Carlo and Dante founded RAEN (Research in Agriculture and Enology Naturally) winery with the goal to produce world class Pinots from unique coastal vineyards in Sonoma. Backed with a lot of history, a healthy dose of experience and a keen eye for great vineyards and winemaking we'd bet that this project won't stay under wraps for long…
