Winemaker Notes

The color is medium to dark cherry red. In the nose red fruits dominate and there are hints of cola, spices and a touch of forest floor. This is a full bodied, well balanced, intense young Pinot Noir. It is complex and full of flavor with a long, lingering finish. It has the structure made for aging and patient cellaring over the next three to ten years will be rewarded.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
A big improvement over the ’06, ripe and rich in flavor, and capable of aging. The wine is dry and silky, with deep, impressive flavors of cherries, red currants, Dr. Pepper cola and sandalwood, as well as Burgundian, earthy notes of mushrooms and balsam. Delicious now, yet the tannins suggest a glidepath through 2013.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Firm and complex, with dark fruit built around wild berry, blackberry, black cherry, floral and spice. Full-bodied, deep and persistent, with a long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2013.
CG 90
Connoisseurs' Guide
Full-bodied and fully expressed, this somewhat raw-boned take on the variety earns its spurs for its nicely framed aromas of ripe black cherries, hints of cocoa and soupcon of sweet oak. Big and rich, filled with plenty of succulent Pinot Noir fruit at its generous heart and certain to smooth out with time in bottle, this is a very tasty and promising wine.

Olson Ogden Wines is a small, artisan wine company located in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County. We specialize in small production, handcrafted wines. Our focus is on Pinot Noir and Rhone varietals, with an emphasis on vineyard designated Syrah’s. We seek out passionate growers with special vineyards.

Our primary goal is to produce balanced, complex and tasty wines that express the terroir and vintage from which they come. Olson Ogden Wines are made with food in mind as we feel that wine is an integral part of a good meal. Our winemaking philosophy has its roots in traditional methods but is tempered by trial and error and creative innovation. Our wines are usually bottled unfined and unfiltered and will likely contain a natural sediment during their evolution. This results in an authentic and honest wine that is rich and complex and a pleasure to drink.

Montalcino

View all wine

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is responsible for both Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti but Montalcino has its own clone, which the locals call Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village, which fan out at various elevations. The variations of elevation and soils create Brunellos of different styles. From the valleys with deeper deposits of clay, the wines are typically bolder and deeper in color with more opulent black fruit. These wines tend to take better to aging in some percentage of new French oak barrels. The hillside wines and vineyards at higher elevations produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas. These sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale. These, in general, may be aged in larger and more traditional oak casks

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.

Sangiovese

View all wine

The perfect intersection of bright fruit and savory earthiness, Sangiovese is the backbone variety in Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino. Elsewhere throughout Italy, it can make inexpensive wines for daily consumption ranging from inoffensive to deliciously easy. On the French island of Corsica, under the name Nielluccio, it produces excellent bright and refreshing red and rosé wines with a personality of their own. Sangiovese has also enjoyed moderate popularity in California and Washington State over the last few decades.

In the Glass

Sangiovese is a medium-bodied red with savory flavors of tart cherry, plum, tomato, fresh tobacco, anise, thyme, oregano, and dried earth. High-quality, well-aged examples will take on notes of smoke, clay pot, leather, gamey meat, potpourri, and dried fruits. Corsican Nielluccio is distinguished by a subtle perfume of dried flowers.

Perfect Pairings

Sangiovese is the ultimate pizza and pasta red—its high acidity, moderate alcohol, and grainy tannins create an affinity with tomato-based dishes, spicy meats, and anything off the barbecue.

Sommelier Secret

Although it is the star variety of Tuscany, cult-classic “Super-Tuscan” wines may contain no Sangiovese at all! Since the 1970s, local winemakers have been producing big, bold wines (with price tags to match) that are typically monovarietal or a blend of one or more of several international varieties—usually Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, or Syrah—with or without Sangiovese.
