Wine Enthusiast – July 1, 2017

The Calling 2014 Sunny View Vineyard Pinot Noir – 94 POINTS
Cherry pie and nuanced spice flavors buoy this delicately layered, medium-bodied vineyard designate that’s built of robust fruit and supported quietly by oak. A thread of white pepper persists throughout, making it especially irresistible. – VB

The Calling 2014 Sullivan Vineyard Chardonnay – 93 POINTS
Light gold in color, this wine is focused and bright. A jasmine aroma and succulent green-apple flavor pairs with steely minerality, offering power and grace in one satisfying package. – VB

The Calling 2014 Patriarch Pinot Noir – 91 POINTS
Raspberry coulis flavors are supported by robust oak and tannin in this densely built wine. Dried herb, tart pomegranate and tea notes provide a sultry edge and proof of coastal influence, marrying well with the richness. – VB

Kunde Family Winery 2014 Reserve Century Vines Zinfanel – 88 POINTS
From head-trained vines interspersed with Alicante Bouschet and Petite Sirah, this is a bright, likable wine, teased in bacon, cola and brown sugar that finds a fresh streak of red currant and juicy strawberry as it opens, the acidity in full view. A bite of chocolate dots the finish. – VB

Josh Cellars Reserve 2014 North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon – 88 POINTS
Easy to enjoy for its straightforward flavors and balance, this medium-bodied wine smells like black cherries and strawberries, tastes fruity and moderately rich and is also shaded by vanilla and maple, adding complexity and a touch of sweetness. – JG

Kunde Family Winery 2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon – 87 POINTS
Tobacco leaf and dried herb dot the landscape of this velvety wine, made from the producer’s estate-grown grapes. Blackberry and dusty mocha are girded by bittersweet tannin and toasted oak. -VB
