($48) Bright, hazy red. Expansive, intensely floral bouquet offers redcurrant, wild strawberry, smoky minerals and dried rose. The palate shows sweeter raspberry and cherry flavors, with slow-building Asian spice and vanilla bean notes adding complexity. An elegant, focused style, with no excess fat or rough edges and good finishing snap. (JR)

About This Producer


Ryan Zepaltas arrived in California from Eau Claire, Wisconsin with $400 and a skateboard so he could indulge his skate passion year-round. A career detour took him to Siduri, where he learned to make Pinot Noir and Syrah under Dianna and Adam Lee. In 2004 he released the first wine under his own label, 40 cases of Syrah sourced from Rosella's Vineyard. His 2005 Pinot Noir La Cruz Vineyard, a site owned by Keller Estates on the Sonoma Coast, received a 95-point rating from The Wine Spectator and put Ryan on the radar for good. Living literally in the Suicci Vineyard, from which he gets Pinot, allows Ryan total control over his production from vine to bottle.
