Item#: 31737

JD9393 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 8/2/2022
Moving into some black fruits with the 2020 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley, it offers notes of dark fresh earth, toast, and cinnamon stick. The texture is full, with fairly gripping structure, and the palate is rich with black cherry, tea leaf, and forested earth. Drink this over the next 10 or more years. (Audrey Frick)

Region / California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

A stunning white, this leaps out of the glass with aromatic mango, orange blossom and salted ripe melon flavors. Gains complexity from grilled peach, lemon oil, savory litsea oil and toasted herb elements, with a fleshy, creamy texture and fresh acidity. Drink now through 2029. 15,000 cases made. (MaryAnn Worobiec)
JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, December 5, 2023
A layered and creamy white with melon, apple puree and hints of kiwi. Medium body, creamy, and lovely al dente finish. Just a hint of sweetness. Drink now. (James Suckling)
WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 3/1/2024
Fruit forward and generous in texture, this easy-sipping wine is relatively soft in terms of acidity, full in body and soaked with good apple and honeydew melon flavors that last through a lingering, slightly tangy finish. (Jim Gordon)

Suerte by Paul Lato | Solomon Hills Vineyard Pinot Noir 2020 / 750 ml.

Solomon Hills Vineyard Pinot Noir
2020 / 750 ml.

Item #: 43280

JD95+95+ pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 8/29/2022
The 2020 Pinot Noir Suerte Solomon Hills Vineyard comes from a great, tiny site outside of Santa Maria and was destemmed and spent 17 months in 52% new French oak. It has some classic Santa Maria minerality and marine-like iodine nuances as well as darker cherry and berry fruits, notes of baking spices, chocolate, and loamy earth, medium to full body, a round, concentrated mouthfeel, and a great finish. This rich, serious effort will benefit from just a year or two of bottle age and should have a decade of prime drinking. (Jeb Dunnuck)
VN9595 pts. - Vinous - Aug 2022
The 2020 Pinot Noir Solomon Hills Vineyard Suerte is a fabulous example of what this Santa Maria site is all about. Dense, rich and explosive, the 2020 offers up copious dark cherry, plum, lavender, spice and a kiss of new French oak, with silky tannins and soft contours that wrap it all up. (Antonio Galloni)

Item #: 34247

JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, January 14, 2022
Perfumed aromas of red and black cherries, red licorice, cooking spice and rose water. Medium-to full-bodied with steady acidity that helps to articulate the dark-fruit and tobacco flavors, but retains freshness throughout. Sandy, easy-going tannins. Wet-stone finish. 100% estate grown. Drink now. Screw cap. (James Suckling)
JD9090 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 8/2/2022
The 2020 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast is flush with pristine fruit on the nose, including cherry candy, crushed flowers, and forest floor. The palate is fresh with red raspberry and cinnamon, and it has refreshing acidity on the finish. This is a lovely, classic wine for drinking over the next couple of years. (Audrey Frick)
VN8989 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2022
The 2020 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is terrific and also one of the highlights of this very challenging year. A burst of red/purplish berry fruit, spice, lavender and rose petal is immediately alluring. There is a bit of grippiness here, but nothing a bit of aeration won’t take care of. (Antonio Galloni)

There are pleasantly herbal and seashore-like characteristics to the nose of this bottling, which offers aromas of green sage, kelp, cranberry, smoke and chiseled rock. The palate begins with baked red-cherry flavors before hints of leather and wild thyme arise, as sandy tannins hold everything together. (Matt Kettmann)
