Bacigalupi Vineyard Chardonnay 2012, Russian River Valley, CA, $56   – Rating 92

Bacigalupi Vineyard Chardonnay 2012One of my favorite 2012 Russian River Chardonnays, unfiltered and unfined. A robust nose of red apple, Meyer lemon, baking spice and pie crust. Full bodied with juicy acidity offering flavors of red apple, Meyer lemon, pineapple and ripe pear with a definite sense of minerality. Red apple and spice dance in the long finish. Buy This Wine.

Bacigalupi Vineyard Rosé of Pinot Noir 2013Bacigalupi Vineyard Rosé of Pinot Noir 2013, Russian River Valley, Sonoma County, CA, $30 – Rating 92

This wine just screams summer on the patio. A soft bouquet of ripe strawberry, wet stone and spice. A lush mouth-feel with crisp acidity offering flavors of strawberry, raspberry, ripe watermelon and brown spice. Notes of rhubarb in the very long finish. Plenty of body to pair with grilled chicken or salmon. Buy This Wine
