Wine Advocate, Wine Enthusiast & James Suckling Scores

WINE ADVOCATE – APRIL 2018

The Calling Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2016 – 91 POINTS
The 2016 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast is scented of apple pie, poached pears and peach preserves with suggestions of clover honey and croissant. Medium-bodied with beautiful freshness and plenty of delicate nuances, it has a lovely creaminess to the texture and an invigorating finish.

WINE ENTHUSIAST – JUNE 2018

The Calling Dutton Ranch Chardonnay 2016 – 94 POINTS
Luxurious in green olive, peach and lemon, this is a complex compelling vineyard-designate, well made and in balance. Sophisticated, it offers a lingering length of toasted oak spice that complements the fruit and adds a spark to the whole. – V.B.

The Calling Fox Den Pinot Noir 2015 – 91 POINTS
Brawny and full bodied, this earthy wine shows a generosity of forest floor, cardamom and cola, before unveiling integrated layers of bright strawberry and citrus. – V.B.

The Calling Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2016 – 90 POINTS
This wine is lovely and expressive in stony mineral, lemon rind, apple, quince and bread. It’s medium-bodied, with a pleasant lushness that unfolds on the midpalate. – V.B.

The Calling Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2015 – 90 POINTS
Made by Winemaker Dan Goldfield, this wine is well crafted and earthy. It’s a soft, gentle expression of just-picked strawberry that’s light in approach and delicate on the palate. – V.B.

Kunde Estate Merlot (Sonoma Valley) – 89 POINTS
Sanguine and herbal, this wine is hugely concentrated in extracted and intense flavors of blackberry, red currant and cedar. It showcases meaty tannins and rich oak. – V.B.
