During our Zoom interview on June 7th, we had a chance to meet with Theresa Heredia who is the winemaker for Gary Farrell Wines. During the interview we covered four of her new-release Chardonnays and five of her new-release Pinot Noirs. We have been covering Theresa’s wines for the last few years and we are always looking forward to the next batch that we receive.

Theresa has been the winemaker at the Gary Farrell Winery since 2012. Prior to that she was the winemaker for the Joseph Phelps’ Freestone Vineyards project on the Sonoma Coast. Her Pinot Noir and Chardonnay’s brought that winery significant critical acclaim. As you will read below, similar accolades have followed her to Gary Farrell.

While at Gary Farrell, Theresa gets fruit and makes wines from some of them most sought out vineyards in California. Some of those vineyards include Rochioli, Bacigalupi, Hallberg, Ritchie, Martaella, Durell and Gap’s Crown.

Below is a summary of the 9 impressive wines that we covered with Theresa. As you will see, many of them come from these impressive vineyards. The links are to our full reviews. If you are interested in ordering and trying these wines, you will find the Russian River Selection wines via your favorite wine shop.

Based on what we tasted, Theresa certainly has done a terrific job showing off the characteristics and qualities of each vineyard she works with. Enjoy – Ken

During our interview on May 25, we had a chance to meet with Todd Graff who is the winemaker and general manager for Frank Family Vineyards. We had covered Frank Family wines over the years, but really did not know much about Todd or the details behind the winery. It was fun to learn about Todd’s background. Having worked at Schramsberg Vineyards (A KWG favorite) we are looking forward to covering one or two of his sparkling wines this fall. He has been leading the effort here for 19 years and has built a very strong team that was clearly reflected in the wines that we covered. They have a very good short video on their winemaking process. It is worth checking out.

We also discussed that Frank Family Vineyards was acquired by Treasury Americas last fall. The good news for us and fans of the winery and its wines, is that Todd Graff, will remain with Frank Family Vineyards after closing. We also have a nice relationship with the folks at Treasury and look forward to continuing to cover the wines made by Todd and his team. Rich and Leslie Frank will maintain the ownership of Winston Hill Vineyard in Rutherford and the Lewis Vineyard in Napa. That said, those vineyards will continue to source grapes for the Frank Family reserve tier after the closing. That is also very good news, as you will see those vineyards sourced the grapes for some very good wines. Overall, the future looks bright for Todd and Frank Family Vineyards. Below is a summary of the impressive wines that we covered with Todd. The links are to our full reviews. If you are interested in ordering and trying these wines, you will find the Carneros and Napa Valley wines via your favorite wine shop.

We have to do it right the first time.” Based on what we tasted, Todd and his team are certainly doing it right! Enjoy – Ken

During our interview on May 4, we had a chance to catch up with Christian Tietje. I first met Christian many years ago during the early days of the Boston Wine Expo. Christian and Billy Grant were enlightening the world with their Four Vines and Freak Show wines. These days, Christian is the winemaker and owner Anarchy Winery. He is as fun as ever and perhaps even more of a mad scientist with his of winemaking. That said, with many vintages of experience under his belt, he is churning out fantastic wines that consistently over-deliver for the price. They will also blow your mind!

The fun part me these days when I interview Christian, is I get to bust his balls about Bordelaise grapes. In the early days, Christian would swear off any wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petite Verdot. The funny part now is that our two highest scoring wines were a 100% Cabernet Franc and blend featuring Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. These wines kick ass and are a great reflection of Christian’s winemaking skill. Some people might say Christian found religion; Christian would probably say he has crossed over to the dark side! Either way, it worked out for the best!

Below is a summary of all the impressive wines that we covered with Christian. The links are to our full reviews and complete wine details (Including blend %’s) . If you are interested in ordering and trying these wines, you will find a few of them via your favorite wine shop. The rest are available for order via the Anarchy winery website.

During our interview on April 27th, we had a chance to catch up with Janell after a very long hiatus. I first met Janell many years ago during the early days of the Boston Wine Expo. These days, Janell is the head winemaker and owner Janell Dusi Winery. Janell was born and raised on the Dusi Vineyard where her grandfather Dante taught her the old-world Italian style of winemaking. The Dusi family’s heritage and history in Paso Robles Wine Country dates back to the early 1920’s, where grape growing was a craft.

Another fun discovery, was the story of the Paper Street Vineyard. We learned that after years of searching, in 2013 Mike Dusi found a 360-acre parcel of land in the Willow Creek AVA. It was hilly, rocky, covered in dead trees, and had been ignored for many years. It was a brutal piece of land – and in his eyes, perfect. The family thought he had gone a little crazy, but that was just the beginning.

A Paper Street is a road or street that appears on maps but does not exist in reality. The piece of land off Kiler Canyon was quite literally on one of these. Mike Dusi saw something special, and the Paper Street Vineyard was born. Continuing and expanding on the legacy of generational farming, for 3 years he worked with sons Matt and Michael to clear the land and plant the vineyard. The elevation, steep hillsides, and white calcareous terrior create excellent growing conditions for making bold, balanced, and complex wines. Of the 360 acres, 110 was cultivatable. Those 110 acres are steep, rocky, and full of limestone. They include varieties such as (of course) Zinfandel, Mourvedre, Grenache, Syrah, Clairette Blanche, Tempranillo, Carignane, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petite Sirah. Their first official Paper Street vintage was 2016.

We certainly left the interview knowing that Janell and her family are farmers. Janell is also a passionate winemaker and very good at what she does.

To get a cool visual of the J. Dusi winery, check out this video of the vineyard and the tasting room.
Another cool video is this one of the Paper Street Vineyard. Enjoy!

Below is a summary of all the impressive wines that we covered with Janell. The links are to our full reviews. If you are interested in ordering and trying these wines, you will find a few of them via your favorite wine shop. The rest are available for order via the J. Dusi winery website.

Kristen McMahan-Goldeneye WinemakerDuring our interview on April 20th, we learned several thing in speaking with Kristen. The first thing we learned, was that in 2012, Kristen moved to Sonoma County to dedicate herself to wine full time. In addition to joining the winemaking team at Korbel, where she spent six years honing her skills working with sparkling wine and Pinot Noir. Simultaneously, she also gained some invaluable experience with cool-climate Pinot Noir working for Joseph Phelps’s Freestone Winery on the Sonoma Coast.

After joining Goldeneye in 2019, Kristen quickly distinguished herself for her unparalleled work ethic, gifted palate, and scientific acumen. She rapidly rose through the ranks from enologist II to assistant winemaker in Feb 2020 to winemaker in June of 2021.

Kristen shared with us, the unique characteristics of their three estate vineyards. We learned how the Confluence Vineyard develops vibrant red fruit characteristics in their wines. While the Gowan Creek Vineyard which is right at the winery, yields voluptuous and deep blue-fruit styled wines. I also noted how the wines appear to be evolving in a bit more restrained fashion of the last 4 years. She agreed, especially with the Gowen. The last Estate vineyard we explored was the Narrows Vineyard. This vineyard is on a hillside and delivers fascinating terroir-driven rusticity in its wines. All three estate wines were very different. We also had a chance to try the “Ten Degrees” Pinot which is a blend of the best barrels from the three Estate vineyards. They certainly picked the right barrels in 2019! Finally, we also had a chance to explore a Pinot from the Cerise Vineyard. This vineyard from the Anderson Valley has supplied grapes to the Kosta Browne label and now Kristen gets to play and craft wines from those grapes as well!

Below is a summary of all the impressive wines that we covered with Kristen. The links are to our full reviews. If you are interested in ordering and trying these wines, you will find a few of them via your favorite wine shop or fine dining restaurant. The rest are available for order via the Goldeneye website.

We learned several things in speaking with Mike on March 9th. The first thing we learned, was that Mike has worked alongside legendary vintner Josh Jensen for more than a decade, helping to guide winemaking at Calera.

We also learned that while earning his degree in viticulture and enology UC Davis, Mike worked at Saintsbury, where he began to develop a passion for Pinot Noir. After graduation, Mike spent a year as the wine chemist at Beringer, before moving home to the Central Coast to become the assistant winemaker at Chalone in 2004.

In 2007, Josh Jensen invited Mike to become the assistant winemaker at Calera. He jumped at the opportunity. Mike and Josh quickly discovered that they shared similar philosophies, palates, and approaches to growing and making wine. In 2009, Josh named Mike the winemaker for Calera. As you will see below, Mike was the right man for the job!

Below is a summary of all the impressive wines that we covered with Mike. The links are to our full reviews.

On February 16th, Three Sticks winemaker Ryan Prichard, joined the Tasting Panel on Zoom to cover 8 of his new release wines.

We learned several thing in speaking with Ryan. But one of the most interesting tidbits was that his passion for wine started with a senior elective wine appreciation class which he took when he was a student of Cornell University. Similarly, my passion for wine started with a wine appreciation course which I took at Syracuse University in my senior year.

Ryan completed the UC Davis Certificate Program in Winemaking and decided to move back to California and begin winemaking full-time. Since his return to California, Ryan has worked alongside many esteemed winemakers in various Sonoma County wineries including Williams Selyem, Copain, Custom Crush, Medlock Ames, and Graft Wines, and is concurrently the Winemaker at Flambeaux Wine in Dry Creek Valley.

Ryan joined Three Sticks Wines as Winemaker in 2015 alongside Director of Winemaking, Bob Cabral. His focus is crafting Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. As you will see below, Ryan makes many terrific Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines for Three Sticks.

Below is a summary of all the impressive wines that we covered with Ryan. The links are to our full reviews. If you are interested in ordering and trying these wines, you will find a few of them via your favorite wine shop or fine dining restaurant.

On February 2nd, Black Kite and Saxon Brown winemaker Jeff Gaffner, joined the Tasting Panel on Zoom to cover 9 of his new release wines.

We really enjoyed our session with him. Jeff began his career at Chateau St. Jean, under the tutelage of renowned vintner Richard Arrowood, who Jeff credits with teaching him the importance of being as passionate about growing the grapes as making the wine.

Jeff launched Saxon Brown in 1997. It is named after his favorite female literary character, from Jack London’s Valley of the Moon. He started it to focus on small single vineyard bottlings reflecting his preference for elegantly structured, well-balanced and age worthy wines. Jeff calls Saxon Brown his R&D brand. It allows him to take winemaking risks and experiment with ideas that he wouldn’t try with his clients’ production.

We were first introduced to Jeff via his impressive work at Black Kite Cellars. Jeff joined Black Kite as their consulting winemaker in 2005. As noted above, Jeff is as passionate about growing grapes as he is about making the wine. We also found out that Jeff really likes how wind effects the grapes and vineyards.

As you will see below, Jeff makes many terrific Pinot Noirs from its Kite’s Rest Vineyard in Anderson Valley. The terroir at the three levels of the vineyard are all so very different. This results in distinct and noticeably different wines in the separate bottlings. They have also recently planted a new vineyard on the Sonoma Coast called “Jasper Freestone.” Its young wines are also very impressive. You can read about the entire winery’s story and history here.

Below is a summary of all the impressive wines that we covered with Jeff. The links are to our full reviews. If you are interested in ordering these wines, you find a few of them via your favorite wine shop or fine dining restaurant. The rest are available for order via the Black Kite and Saxon Brown websites.

Ryan Rech BeringerOn January 26th, Beringer winemaker Ryan Rech, joined the Tasting Panel on Zoom to cover 9 of his new release wines.

We really enjoyed our session with him. We learned that in 2016, Ryan joined Beringer Vineyards as “Luxury Red Winemaker” and crafted wines from the Knights Valley estate. Since we are quite fond of the Knights Valley portfolio, we spent a lot of time speaking about how the Knights Valley wines have impressively evolved over the last 2-3 vintages.

Continuing with his story, in 2017 he was appointed Sr. Winemaker and General Manager and elevated to Chief Winemaker in 2021. It was quite cool to learn about his path to being the 9th Winemaker. We love interviewing these “science geek” winemakers, because we learn so much and quite frankly, they discover we are wine geeks as well!

Ryan philosophy is that he believes “the vineyard is where the important work is done, and that his job is to showcase the exceptional fruit he is fortunate enough to receive.” Based upon our tasting, I think you will find that he does a very good job with those grapes!

Below is a summary of all the impressive wines that we covered with Ryan. The links are to our full reviews. If you are interested in ordering these wines, you can find many of them via your favorite wine shop. Some may be club only wines that you will have to order via the Beringer website.

On January 12th, DAOU and Patrimony winemaker Daniel Daou, joined the Tasting Panel on Zoom to cover 11 of his new release wines. This is the second time Daniel has meet with the Tasting Panel.

We really have enjoyed both of our sessions with him. His story is incredible and very impressive. You can hear all the details of this journey in this comprehensive Cork Talk podcast with Tim Atkin. His passion is also very impressive. And we loved his quote “chase your passion, don’t do it for the $.” That certainly rings true with for the members of the Ken’s Wine Guide Tasting Panel. We also learned a ton of details about his Patrimony project. How he is building his team with former members from the legendary Opus One winery. You can learn more about the Patrimony story in the Where The Wine Takes You podcast with Adam Montiel.

Finally, Daniel is convinced that the Adelaida District in Paso Robles is ideal for growing world class Cabernet Sauvignon. The proof is in the bottle and you should see for yourself. Below is a summary of all the impressive wines that we covered with Daniel. The links are to our full reviews.
