Site Blog: dougwilder - the purely domestic wine blog Aromas: as with the 2007, very clear except in the core. Spice, meyer lemon, graphite, flint and pineapple Palate: rich, focused, nice acidity, stone fruits, apricot and peach Impression: firm and focused, good weight, even on day three at ambient temperature.

About This Producer


Auteur concentrates on just two varietals, but produces them stunningly: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from California and Oregon. Winemaker and owner Kenneth Juhasz and his wife and partner Laura believe that their success stems from selecting vineyards situated in cool climates as well as focusing on the masculine and feminine personalities of these two varietals. Auteur sources fruit from Willamette Valley, Sonoma Coast, Los Carneros, and Mendocino Ridge. Auteur is the only producer to share the famed Shea Vineyard "Back Block," with the grower, Shea Wine Cellars. Some outstanding Auteur vintages include the groundbreaking 2004 Donum Vineyard Chardonnay from Carneros - the first release from California vines - and the 2005 Shea Pinot Noir, Vinfolio's Wine of the Year 2006.

Auteur (French for "author" or "composer") explains that the deep orange color of their label represents their "adventurous spirit combined with the organic nature of winemaking."
