Winemaker Notes

The 2018 Olema Pinot Noir is a wine of beautifully complex aromatics. Ripe cherry, raspberries and rose petal notes give way to earthy flavors of mushroom, forest floor and hints of vanilla. A medium-bodied wine with lively, bright flavors, soft tannins, and a silky-smooth finish.

Blend: 97% Pinot Noir, 3% Petite Sirah

This is really beautiful with crushed strawberries and hints of raspberries with some savory undertones. Forest flowers, too. Full body and slightly austere tannins. Creamy and finely crafted. Lovely finish. 97% pinot noir and 3% petite sirah. Drink now.

A smoking value that’s sourced from Sonoma County, Russian River, Carneros, and Petaluma Gap, the 2018 Pinot Noir Sonoma County is a pretty, medium-bodied, elegant red that has classy cranberry and tart cherry fruits as well as hints of spring flowers. Brought up in 35% new oak, it’s hard to beat at the price.
RP 89
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Aged 10 months in 35% new French oak, the pale ruby-purple colored 2018 Pinot Noir Olema comes prancing out of the glass with bold black cherries, fresh raspberries and mulberries scents plus hints of cinnamon stick, underbrush and dusty soil. Medium-bodied, the palate has impressive definition for this price point, with bags of juicy red fruit and soft tannins to support, finishing with a refreshing lift. 20,000 cases produced.

Amici, California
Amici Winery Video
In the 1990's, a group of friends with a passion for good wine and fun times together crushed a few tons of grapes in the Napa Valley for their personal cellars. The resulting wine was so well-received that they started producing wine the very next year to share with the public. They chose to name the wine, appropriately, Amici ("friends" in Italian).

Amici's owners — John Harris, Bob and Celia Shepard, and Bart Woytowicz—are all great friends with a passion for making and enjoying great wine. At Amici the focus is on quality, not quantity. Because they insist on keeping the production small, they can carefully control the process of creating each wine, crafting what they like to consider a small work of art in each bottle.

What started as a few friends crushing some grapes for fun is now an award-winning premium wine known around the country, but one thing will never change: Amici is a wine created by friends, for friends.

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
