REVIEWS

Wine Spectator- 2015
- New reviews of expressive California Pinots from 2013 and 2014....

2013 Abiouness Stanly Ranch Carneros Pinot Noir 
Tightly wound, with red candy apple, blackberry and spice flavors. The structure makes this appealing to those who value restraint and structure. Drink now through 2021. 270 cases made. - J.L.

SILVER

We just submitted our 2011 Stanly Ranch to the Press Democrat and received a Silver medal. It's not Gold, but not far away either. This is our new release and in very limited production. 

GOLD MEDALS

2 wines in 2 different competitions just won GOLD medals. And they are now almost completely SOLD OUT. Hopefully you already have your stash- if not, hurry!!

Wine Spectator- 2013

2009 Abiouness Pinot Noir Silacci Santa Lucia Highlands - 87 points
Shares the rustic earthiness of the other Abiouness Pinots, with herb, berry, anise and savory notes, ending dry. Drink now through 2020. 70 cases made. - JL

2009 Abiouness Pinot Noir Pommard Clone Stanly Ranch Carneros -  88 points 
This Pommard clone bottling shows finesse and polish, retaining a firm, intense core of fresh earth and dark berry. This is well-focused and persistent, ending with gripping tannins. Best from 2014 trough 2022. 47 cases made. - JL

 

Stephen Tanzer - May 2012 

2008 Abiouness Pinot Noir Hudson Vineyard Carneros - 90 points View
Medium red. Musky, Burgundian aromas of smoky red fruits and underbrush. Fine-grained and alive, with lovely energy and mineral firmness to the flavors of strawberry, raspberry and earth. Harmonious acidity carries the fruit through a very smooth finish.

2008 Abiouness Pinot Noir Silacci Santa Lucia Highlands - 90 points - View
Pale red. Pungent aromas of red berries, spices and smoke. Smooth but juicy and penetrating, with enticing floral lift and a saline complexity to the red berry flavors. Good fat here for a pinot with just 13% alcohol, but this is a graceful style, not a powerhouse.

2008 Abiouness Pinot Noir Pommard Clone Stanly Ranch Carneros - 91 points - View
Medium red. Smokier and more soil-inflected on the nose than the "regular" Stanly Ranch bottling, offering complex aromas of red fruits, flowers, pepper and brown spices. Fine-grained and delicate pinot in a distinctly mellow style, offering lovely complexity and a very smooth back end.
