Russian River Valley
Let’s be honest: it’s hard to find a tiny vineyard planted to just one clone that makes any real sense any more. But each year, from the two acres at Wightman House, the tinniest of berries on mighty big clusters shows off the Martini clone like nothing else. Very aromatic, showing bright cherry and raspberry balanced with floral notes, hints of rose petal leading the way.
Tannin management was the key to quality and when working with fruit from Anderson Valley, and particularly the Wightman House Vineyard, you need good viticulture and precise picking decisions to bring balance to the final wine. This wine is always complex and delivers rich, earthy aromas of mushroom and forest floor. Dense, full tannins provide roundness and support as black cherry and plum harmonize with savory notes of cardamom to entertain the palate. – Matt Courtney, Consulting Winemaker
This wine is always intense and has a bright beautiful Beaujolais-like quality on the nose. A big, rich, ripe entry leads to black tea and bergamot notes surrounded by black cherry and hints of smoke. – Matt Courtney, Consulting Winemaker
If Pinot Noir is often described as feminine, well, this wine shows a decidedly masculine bent. Unusual in that it hails from a tiny two-acre vineyard planted to just the Martini clone, it always features big tannins and broad shoulders, a big boy wine which requires some steady persuasion at harvest time, when tiny rock-hard berries with thick skins don’t give up their treasure easily. An aggressive pigeage regime demands careful attention, but the result is always rewarding. Classic Anderson Valley earthiness and crisp acids lead, balanced with tart cranberries, sour cherry and a touch of white pepper and oak spice. Never shy, and rewarding for those who favor a powerful expression of Pinot Noir.
~ 93 Points, 4 Stars / “This is a real blockbuster of a wine that will delight Pinot Noir lovers. Anderson Valley Pinot is typically cool and this one tops the cool scale bringing classic flavors together with rich, concentrated fruit. Serve with roasted leg of lamb or perhaps some grilled lamb sausage as this bold Pinot Noir beckons big flavors.” – Sean Ludford, BevX.com
~ 93 Points / “Gorgeously luxurious with deep color and fruit intensity wrapped in a subtle and soft robe of ripe tannin and lifting acidity. [Oak] adds a smoky sweetness and give a lush creamy feel, it doesn’t take away from this beautiful Pinot, this is pretty sexy stuff. Incredibly darkly hued garnet and ruby in color, the Wightman House starts with loads of blue fruit, sweet rose petal, light vanilla and walnut leading to a richly packed palate of blackberry, cherry and plum fruits along with a touch of wild mushroom, mission fig, anise, mineral, tea spices, sandalwood and a hint saline and stones. The finish is sweet and succulent, lingering with mocha, kirsch and cassis, look for lots of developing nuances to emerge over the next 3 to 5 years in bottle as this brilliant wine unveils itself more fully, this is impressive stuff…if you drink it young you’ll be seduced by opulence, and if you are patient you’ll be rewarded with complexity and glorious detail. I’d love to re-visit this Pinot in 7 to 10 years, I believe it should have a great and long drinking window, at 13.8% and with the sublime and lavish fruit, this should drink fantastic from release to 2027 easy.” – Kerry Winslow, Grapelive.com
~ 91 Points / “Subtle, tart and lithe with notes of cherry, black pepper, red rose, dried herbs, clove and vanilla.” – Catherine Fallis MS, The Planet Grape Wine Review
~ “A varietal Pinot Noir with a flowery perfume (wild roses, pink petals), on-point for the ripe California style. A whiff of barrel toast adds interest. Normally I dislike spice in Pinot Noir, but here it feels integrated with the wine’s blazing raspberry and cherry flavors. The body balances levity and seriousness. Good tannins—surprising tannins! —add drying astringency, while sweet fruits saturate the finish.” – Meg Houston Maker, Maker’s Table
~94 points / “Coming from a tiny vineyard of just 1.5 acres planted entirely to the Martini clone, the 2014 Wightman House Vineyard Pinot Noir has a medium to deep ruby-purple color and wonderfully floral perfume of violets and roses over a core of Bing cherries, cranberries and forest floor, plus touches of pepper and garrigue. Concentrated in the medium to full-bodied mouth, the muscular fruit is densely packed around a great structure of firm, grainy tannins with savory/earthy and mineral notes emerging on the long, long finish. Only 119 cases were produced.” – Robert Parker
