Reuling Vineyard lies just off Highway 116 between Graton and Forestville. Developed in 2000 by Mark Aubert and Peter Michael Winery, the site has become one of the premier Pinot noir and Chardonnay properties in California.
It includes 12.2 acres of Pinot noir planted to three unique clones–Calera and two distinct “suitcase” clones from the Vosne-Romanée region of Burgundy–and 2.2 acres of Chardonnay grown from cuttings from the Côte de Beaune.
The 2014 vintage was the third year in the row of nearly perfect harvest conditions. As such, all three Pinot clones showed exceptionally in the vintage and were blended all together as they were the year before in 2013. This was built beautifully and just starting to hit its stride. As Wine Enthusiast properly suggests, “this will hit its stride 2022-2029.” I can confirm this is fantastic.
94 Points, Wine Enthusiast
This is a layered and complex estate-driven wine. Its firm, sizable tannin foundation promises longevity and enviable structure, while allowing for a plush, lush exuberance of cherry clafoutis, cardamom and salted caramel. Enjoy best 2022 through 2029.“
