New Offering Archives


Elegant and genuinely Pinot is the best way to describe this new offering from the Buoncristiani family from the Russian River Valley. Cousins to the Napa Buoncristiani vintners, Tina just stopped by my office to taste us on her '07 and '08 Orentano RRV Pinot Noir. While the '07 was showing well with clean, warm tones of cherry, it was the '08 that stood out just a bit more. A little more spice on the finish and a touch more depth on the mid-palate, I really enjoyed this new offering. Located on Woolsey Road, Orentano's seven-acre vineyard neighbors Martinelli Winery. Retailing at $36, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Available this week!

'Till next time, remember this- drink any and every wine, so long as it's good!
