Winemaker Notes

Deep, beautiful floral notes highlight the nose that is backed up by dried herbs, baking spice and raspberries. In the mouth, a little gritty tannin and chalky mouthfeel hold up exotic flavors of black cherry and mint. This is definitely a wine that will benefit from time in the cellar.

Critical Acclaim

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
An ethereally lithe and elegant wine, the aromatic profile and exuberance on the palate suggest savory and spicy specks of pomegranate, cranberry and even rhubarb. It's fresh, structured and well-integrated, with a bite of bark and clove on the rounded finish.

Ryan Zepaltas passion for wine snowballed over time. Ryan grew up in Wisconsin drinking beer and couldn’t recall wine ever being a part of his family culture. All the adults in his life would sip on Manhattan’s, Old Fashioneds and drink local beers. The first time he ever noticed wine was when he was dining with his next-door neighbor. The retired teacher, Mr. Sutherland, would keep a jug of Carlo Rossi Burgundy on the floor at the head of the table where he sat.

Fast forward to summer 1998 in the Russian River Valley. Ryan had just moved to Sebastopol to live with his aunt and uncle. He made friends with Mike Mendenhall, the then cellar master at La Crema, who would later offer him a job.

He gradually found the winemaking process and the work more interesting. He stayed on for a couple of harvests but soon found out about harvest jobs in other countries. It was working harvest at Villa Maria under Michelle Richardson where Ryan truly discovered his passion for wine. When he returned back to the states, he worked all over Sonoma County doing whatever cellar work was available. Eventually, he would hear about a harvest opportunity at Siduri. He interviewed with Adam and Dianna Lee and has been at Siduri ever since.

Ryan has made a ton of great wines with Siduri and has had a blast the whole time (and still does to this day). He decided that one day he was going to make his own wines in the style that he envisioned and would start his own project on the side… thus, Zepaltas Wines was born.

The Sonoma Coast AVA is large in area but, not counting overlapping regions like Russian River Valley, only has a few thousand acres of grapevines—and it’s no wonder. Much of the region is rugged and not easily accessible. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean’s fog and cool breezes limits the varieties that can be cultivated, but it proves to be an ideal environment for high quality Pinot Noir.

Since fog is a frequent fact of life here, as are heavy marine layers that sometimes bring rain, the best vineyards are wisely planted above the fog line, on picturesque ridges that capture enough sun to provide even ripening. That, with the overnight drop in temperature that reliably preserves acidity, results in fine expressions of Pinot Noir that often receive tremendous critic and consumer praise alike, and are often in high demand.
