2009 - C. Donatiello Maddies Vineyard Pinot Noir
"Vivid ruby. Fresh cherry, raspberry, musky flowers, allspice and graphite on the nose. Sweet, floral-dominated and intense, with tangy acidity and minerality contributing energy to this taut wine's sweet red fruit character. Firmly built and very long, with captivating floral pastille notes lingering on the finish." (05/11) - 93 Pts Stephen Tanzer - International Wine Cellar
"Ripe cherry, raspberry, and rose petal underscored by notes of chocolate, coconut, and earthiness on the nose. Elegantly structured with flavors of bing cherry, boysenberry, and pomegranate. Smooth and balanced finish with balanced flavors of dark plum, refined tannins and focused acidity." -Winery
"Maddie's Vineyard is located along Westside Road, just south of the town of Healdsburg, in the area of the Russian River Valley commonly referred to as the Middle Reach."
"Sited on the bench land on the western edge of the river, the soils of Maddie's Vineyard are a mixture of river gravel, sand, silt, and fossil alluvium. They overlay the coastal belt of the Franciscan rocks, remnants of the oceanic plates that fractured while colliding with the western edge of North America. Rich in various minerals, the soils are naturally well drained and the roots of the vines run deep."
"At just 3.5 acres, Maddie's Vineyard is quite small by California standards, and only 0.75 acres is planted to Chardonnay. Aggressive pruning, green harvesting, cluster selection, and multiple passes through the vineyard further limit crop yields. Despite its tiny size, the vineyard is harvested in three separate picks to ensure optimum ripeness for each and every cluster. One pick for the chardonnay, one for the single vineyard pinot noir, and the balance goes to our Russian River Valley wine."
"Sitting in the cradle of the Russian River, our estate enjoys one of the preeminent settings for winemaking in the Russian River Valley. Our crown jewel is Maddie's Vineyard, a certified organic vineyard seated in the Middle Reach of the Russian River - an area considered by many to be the Gold Coast of the valley. While the location of our vineyards helps yield superior fruit, we also pay close and careful attention to each individual vine, hand-sorting twice to assure that only the finest grapes are chosen to become C. Donatiello wine. Then, in our state-of-the-art fermentation room, the fruit makes it's pilgrimage to wine, vigilantly guided by our skilled winemakers." -Winemaker
"Webster Marquez is a dyed-in-the-wool East Coaster who ended up in Northern California chasing after wine knowledge and experience. After two years of training as an Assistant Winemaker in the fairly unforgiving grape-growing climate of Virginia, he moved to Sonoma County and joined Williams Selyem."
"At C. Donatiello, Webster helps craft wines that are representative of their terroir and are fun to drink. He does this by spending long hours in the vineyards and treating the grapes with care and respect in the winery. He especially loves making Russian River Valley wines because of the way they express their climate, vintage, and vineyard. In addition to his work at C. Donatiello, he co-owns a small label called Anthill Farms." -Winery
2006 - Clary Ranch Pinot Noir
"A ripe, pure and elegant nose that is very pinot with intense red berry aromas that carry hints of underbrush and earth over to the rich and equally pure middle weight flavors that possess fine transparency, detail and lovely balance on the cranberry suffused finish that also displays an attractive vibrancy. This is at once delicious and serious and as noted, the balance is impeccable. If you enjoy classically styled pinot that carries almost no youthful austerity, this would be a fine choice. Drink 2012+."
"Clary Ranch is a small family owned winery with wines crafted from their own vineyards where they produce less than 2 tons per acre, "resulting in wines of concentration and finesse." Paul Clary is the winemaker/vineyard manager." (07/09) - 90 Pts Allen Meadows - Burghound
"Clary Ranch is located in the Petaluma Gap region of the Sonoma Coast AVA, about 5 miles due west of Petaluma and 11 miles from Tomales Bay. Clary Ranch Wines was founded by grower & winemaker Paul Clary, who planted the estate vineyards in 2000."
"The vineyards consist of 5 blocks of Pinot Noir on about 12.5 acres and 2 blocks of Syrah on about 2.5 acres. The Pinot Noir clones are Dijon 133 & 667, and Pommard 4. The Syrah clones are Syrah 174 and Shiraz 1. The Pacific winds blow strongly through the end of August, and the grapes depend upon the warm, still days of September and October to ripen. Clary Ranch is on the extreme edge of cool-climate viticulture on the continent." -Winery
