Winemaker Notes

Gold Medal Winner: 2014 Los Angeles International Wine Competition

This wine is notable for a deep ruby color and subtle range of dark cherry, raspberry, blueberry, anise and toffee aromatics, kissed by a hint of vanilla. An intense entry is followed by ripe, dense berry flavors while mature, fine tannins add silky texture and depth. Toasty oak perfectly integrates into a lengthy finish.

Wine Enthusiast
The counties are San Benito, Sonoma and Monterey, all cool-climate regions whose maritime influence shows in the wine's acidity and silkiness. The vintage's ideal growing condition is illustrated by brilliantly ripe raspberry and cherry fruit. It's not likely this has much potential for aging, so drink this beautiful wine now.

Reata, California
Reata Reata Tasting Room Winery Image

Reata at Jamieson Ranch Vineyards is the southernmost winery in the Napa Valley, one of the world’s foremost winemaking regions. The estate’s more than 300 acres of gently rolling hills and terraced vineyards benefit from the cooling fog and breezes from the nearby San Pablo Bay, climatic conditions that favor the production of exceptional Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Reata comes from the Spanish word for lariat and lasso. The lasso honors the winery’s ranching tradition and their winemaking philosophy. Just as lassos are threads woven together, Reata wines are sourced from exceptional vineyards in California’s most celebrated growing regions and woven together by their award-winning winemaker. Reata focuses on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grown in the cooler-climate, coastal regions of California, which are ideally suited to these Burgundian varietals.

Expressive of the true character of their varietal, Reata wines are approachable, balanced and highly enjoyable.

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.”
