  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

    (40% merlot, 40% cabernet franc and 20% cabernet sauvignon) Bright ruby. Locked up tight on the nose. Dense, fat and smoky in the mouth, with pliant flavors of musky red berries, black plum, licorice and tar. Offers lovely volume and sweetness, and the creamy texture that the pH of 4.1 would suggest. Finishes with broad, late-arriving tannins.

    The 2006 Proprietary Red Lucia Abreu Vineyard (a blend of 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 25% Cabernet Franc) offers a fragrant bouquet of flowers, mocha, berry fruit, earth, and minerals. The wine is medium-bodied with good acidity, sharp tannins, and a hint of licorice.

    Complex, yet approachable and quite food friendly now. (Superb with a bit of pungent French blue cheese in an endive and frisee salad.) Wonderful |chewy| mouthfeel and lovely berry and cherry notes, without any cloying sweetness. Might show even better 2 or 3 years from now.

    Improved with bottle age with more complexity and depth.

Mark Aubert's four Sonoma Coast vineyard-designate Chardonnays - Lauren, Reuling, Quarry and Ritchie - have risen to cult status at a dizzying speed. Production is a limited 4,000 cases and the wines are available via the winery's mailing list. Aubert's career in winemaking reads like a fantasy, with his 1989 start as assistant winemaker at Peter Michael under the tutelage of Helen Turley, to his time at Colgin and Bryant Family. His eponymous wines are exemplary renditions of Chardonnay, replete with the rich bounty of the terroirs from which he sources the fruit. At the same time, they reflect his adept oenological hand, and maintain a focused balance of flavor and purity.

Aubert also makes several Pinot Noirs sourced from the Sonoma Coast as well as a "right-bank" Bordeaux style blend from Napa's Howell Mountain.
