Winemaker Notes

Deep red color and very good natural clarity; please note how aromatically perfumed this wine is. A first for Aubert, aromatics of cherry cola that they only have in this bottling! Varietal correct aromatics are very apparent in this wine. Initially, Mark Aubert finds blood orange, cinnamon, a lot of sweet-wet leaves and clay soil abound from the glass. After the primary fruits change then there are the tell tale red Burgundy signatures of a great vintage in the Cote du Nuits. Across the palate you feel the ripeness and how suave the 2009 vintage is. The wine finishes with some acid structure that will allow further development in the bottle.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Rich and expansive, with layers of black licorice, dried berry, sage and smoke flavors. Slow to unfold, but reveals a fresh-turned earth aftertaste as it does. Best from 2013 through 2023.

Aubert The Passion of Elegant Farming Winery Image

Mark Aubert’s Sonoma Coast vineyard-designate Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs have risen in popularity at a dizzying speed. Aubert’s career in winemaking began in 1989 at Peter Michael under the tutelage of Helen Turley, which led to his time at Colgin, Sloan, Futo and then Bryant Family, before founding Aubert Wines with his wife Teresa in 1999. His wines express the essence of singular terroirs with an effortless grace. Mark crafts the wines of Aubert to speak to a variety of wine lovers with one thing in common – selective palates that expect nothing but the best.

Sonoma County, California

A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs all the way from the Mendocino County border, south to the San Pablo Bay. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the actual coastal vineyards, marked by marine soils, cool temperatures and saline ocean breezes—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, which are still heavily influenced by the Pacific but not quite with same intensity.

Contained within the appellation are the much smaller Fort Ross-Seaview and Petaluma Gap AVAs.

The Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah. The wines have high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and balanced ripeness.

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.”
