RAEN 2015 Royal St. Robert Cuveé Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

Raen's 2015 Royal St. Robert Cuvée is an exotically beautiful, almost overwhelming wine endowed with superb depth and intense flavors of rose petal, lavender, spice, blood orange and spice overtones follow in short order. Ripe and racy, but not at all heavy, the 2015 is a real head-turner. Royal St. Robert Cuvee is named in honor of our grandfather who taught

us to be committed to excellence.  Aromas of fresh cut wild strawberries and rose petals

from our Occidental site married with dark bing cherries and hibiscus flowers fade to a sweet resin, white tea, thyme, forest floor and crushed rock.

75% whole cluster fermentation • Wild native fermentation • Aged 10 months in neutral 60-gallon French oak • Bottled without fining or filtration

  Supple and intensely fruity with linear focus and brightness. Wonderful clarity and minerality. Medium body, long and focused. Drink now.   (5/2017)

  Raen's 2015 Royal St. Robert Cuvée is an exotically beautiful, almost overwhelming wine endowed with superb depth and intensity in all of its dimensions. A burst of ripe red and purplish-hued stone fruits rushes across the palate. Rose petal, lavender, spice, blood orange and spice overtones follow in short order. Ripe and racy, but not at all heavy, the 2015 is a real head-turner. All of the depth of the year comes through, but there is also tremendous aromatic intensity and bright acids to balance things out. Brothers Carlo and Dante Mondavi follow their brilliant 2014s with the equally captivating 2015s. Raen focuses on coastal sites where fruit can ripen at relatively low sugars. The wines are fermented with ambient yeasts and see a good deal of whole clusters. In tasting, the Raen Pinots convey the essence of site with tremendous depth and intensity, but no excess weight. Perhaps even more importantly, these are wines of real personality and breed. Don't miss them. (AG)   (1/2017)
