93 Points for 2014 Mossback Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

by: Aileen Niizawa Morris

Tastings.com has awarded our 2014 Mossback Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 93 Points, a Gold Medal and an Exceptional rating!

“Garnet color. Bright, fruity, toasty aromas and flavors of cherry-orange jam on dark toast, spicy vanilla toffee, and hint of caramelized bacon with a satiny, bright, medium-to-full body and a tingling, nuanced, medium-long marinated beets, candied yams, chocolate mint, and cedar finish with chewy, well-integrated tannins and moderate oak. A rather robust and expansive pinot noir with a kaleidoscope of flavors.”

92 Points for Mossback Cab

by: Lane Giguiere

Wine & Spirits magazine gives our 2013 Mossback Chalk Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 92 POINTS and a BEST BUY rating in their April 2016 issue!

92 | Mossback  $25

2013 Chalk Hill Cabernet Sauvignon (Best Buy)  Chalk Hill’s temperate climate and a warm, even growing season combined to grow this notably sleek (and surprisingly affordable) cabernet. It’s an elegant wine with a cool vibrancy to its floral and earth-bound aromas. The tannins are firm at first, softening gradually toward a supple, lush cassis flavor. You can drink this now with steak, or age it another five years or more.
