O'Connor Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012
Score - 90
$33 / bottle
"A commendable wine that is well crafted. Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. Classically Russian River Valley in character, with aromas and flavors of black cherry, cola, spice and a hint of dark chocolate and toasty oak. Nicely balanced, with silky tannins and some finishing length."

O'Connor Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013
Score - 93 - "Cellar Selection"
$35 / bottle
"A small-production wine from longtime growers, this is light and herbal, integrated in wood and tannin. It's vibrant and fresh on the palate and nose in plum and wild strawberry. High in gentle acidity, it provides a note of black tea and earthy truffle on the finish. Drink now through 2021."

About the Vineyard
Green Valley - Russian River Valley AVA
In 1990, we bought a ten-acre property outside of Sebastopol in Sonoma County and replaced the one hundred year old apple orchard with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards. After several years under contract to other wineries, our first vintage of O'Connor Vineyard Pinot Noir was produced in 2005, always sourced exclusively from our four acres, which are planted on Pommard, 115 and 777 clones.
The fruit from our vineyard embodies the traits of the Green Valley sub-appellation of the Russian River Valley AVA, one of the world's finest growing regions for Pinot Noir grapes. The small grapes consistently produce a deep, ruby color and intense fruit flavors of cherry and blackberry balanced by smooth acidity and structure.
