2011 Inman Family Russian River Valley Chardonnay, CA, $35 (S) – Rating 91

This Chardonnay offers a lovely combination of rich flavors and crisp acidity. The nose of baked apples and ripe pineapple gives way to flavors of ripe red apple, roasted pineapple, Meyer lemon and intriguing minerality with a hint of creaminess. As the wine opens, subtle yet complex notes of vanilla and caramel dance in the finish. Buy This Wine

2008 Inman Family Olivet Grange Vineyard (OGV) Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley, CA, $63(S) – Rating 92

Produced with 5 Pinot Noir clones in a 10 acre vineyard, the wine is complex with an inviting nose of raspberry, plum, cherry and spice. Decant for 30+minutes to develop its full potential. Flavors on the palate include cherry, plum, raspberry and blueberry with notes of cranberry and baking spice. As it opens, notes of briar, smoke and leather add depth in the long finish. Zippy acidity with soft tannins make for good food paring potential. Buy This Wine
