2019 Aesthete Rose Of Pinot Noir

Made by the team of Jeff Jones, Pete Jones, and Jesse Katz, the 2019 Rose Of Pinot Noir is 100% Pinot Noir that spent six months in French oak. It actually reminds me a little of a rosé from Bandol with its richer style, yet it still has plenty of freshness as well as a clean, crisp finish. Offering lots of ripe strawberries, nectarines, whites flowers, and spice, drink this complex, textured, food-friendly beauty over the coming 6-12 months.

2019 Aesthete Sauvignon Blanc Dry Stack Vineyard

I was able to taste two vintages of the Sauvignon Blanc, both from a site in the cooler climate Bennett Valley. The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Dry Stack Vineyard offers lots of melon, papaya, fig, and pineapple notes as well as a concentrated, vibrant and pure style on the palate. It's geared for the dinner table and is beautifully done, with both bright acidity and loads of fruit.

2018 Aesthete Pinot Noir Dry Stack Vineyard

Lastly, the 2018 Pinot Noir Dry Stack Vineyard is also terrific, showing a deeper ruby/purple hue, lots of spiced red and black berry-like fruits, a kiss of bay leaf and bouquet garni, medium to full body, and a ripe, rounded texture. It's a sexy Pinot Noir to enjoy over the coming 4-5 years or so.

2018 Aesthete Sauvignon Blanc Dry Stack Vineyard

Less aromatic, the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Dry Stack Vineyard offers more savory and mineral-laced notes of buttered lemons, orange blossom, spice, and crushed stone. Medium-bodied, with a touch of background oak and a Bordeaux Blanc-like vibe, it’s a rocking Sauvignon Blanc. Drink it over the coming 2-4 years.
