2015 Pinot Noir, “La Cruz” Sonoma Coast

The wine offers up an excellent bouquet of cherries, beetroot, cinnamon, woodsmoke, raw cocoa, good soil tones and a hint of fresh dill in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and shows off a good structural chassis and impressive mid-palate depth, with ripe tannins, good focus and grip, lovely transparency and a long, nascently complex finish. This is a very good bottle in the making that needs some time in the cellar to start to really blossom, but the potential is self- evident and this is going to be a very good glass of wine with a bit of patience. 92 Points.

2015 La Cruz Sonoma Coast Chardonnay: 91 points

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Krueger Lane Vineyard

This is old school Napa cabernet, with good structure and need for some time in the cellar to properly blossom. It is going to be excellent!

Vivino 2015 La Cruz Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir a 4.8/5.0 average rating, adding “well balanced - strawberry, cinnamon, vanilla - really well done, looking forward to enjoying more soon.”

A profile in Shakers magazine comments: "Hogan's approach to his Côte West wine reflects the pendulum swing away from the big and bold fruit-forward California wines toward the lean and subtle"

Vintage Berkeley calls Bret a “Burgundian-trained badass” who “makes some of the best Cali Sauv Blanc around.”

Diablo Foods in Lafayette, CA calls our Pinot “Exceptional” and Chardonnay “Spectacular."
