"The 2013 Pinot Noir Keefer Ranch is one of the juicier wines in the range, yet it retains the mid-weight style of the year at Failla. Rose petals, mint, hard candy, cinnamon and sweet red berries add nunace in a supple Pinot that presents a laid-back expression of Russian River exuberance. -- Antonio Galloni"
" After cutting his winemaking teeth assisting a consultant in France's Rhone Valley during the difficult 1992 and 1993 vintages, Ehren Jordan went on to make powerful, ultra concentrated Petite Syrahs and Zinfandels for Turley Wine Cellars. The lessons he learned in France about maximizing ripeness in challenging conditions now serve Jordan and his wife, Anne-Marie Failla (pronounced FAY-la), at their 85-acre property on the Sonoma Coast, about 2.5 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Proximally located near such great producers as Marcassin, Flowers, Hirsch, Martinelli, and Peter Michael, Gualala Ranch provides an ideal growing climate for Failla’s chosen varietals. In addition to estate fruit, they also purchase grapes from such renowned vineyards as Alban, Keefer Ranch and Hirsch. Concentrating on small production Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah Failla’s wines are complex expressions of their environment.
Extremely active in local community interests Failla is also a founding member of the West Sonoma Coast Vintners (WSCV) association. They are in good company with other MSW alums such as; Paul Hobbs, LIOCO, Siduri, Ramey Wine Cellars, Ceritas, Peay Vineyards, and many others. " ~ Winery notes
Yummy - This is our favorite Pinot Noir, especially the Keefer Ranch, which is think is smoother than the Sonoma Coast Version.
