Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 91

($47) Light red. Pungent, seductively perfumed aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry and potpourri, with a hint of musky underbrush. Energetic red berry flavors pack a solid punch but are strikingly light-bodied, with good mineral snap and lift. Becomes sweeter with air and finishes with excellent sappy, nervy persistence.

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.
