Last year the Wine Enthusiast tasted more than 22,000 wines. Recently they published their Top 100 Cellar Selections for 2017. Chosen for their prestige, ageability and immense quality, these wines come from all of the world’s classic and up-and-coming winegrowing regions. It’s every winery’s goal to be on this prestigious list.

In 2017, there were only three California Pinot Noirs to make the list. Our 2012 Domaine Lois Louise
Twisty Ridge Pinot Noir was one of the chosen ones. The wine received 94 points and the following

“This winery atop the mountains overlooking Silicon Valley makes amazingly earthy and age-worthy
wines. This bottling's nose is soil-driven, with sun-baked loam laid across red cherry, condensed lilacs,
cola and sandalwood aromas. The sip is structured firmly and strategically like the frame of a well-built
home, where dark mulberry and savory spices reside. Drink now–2028.”

We still have some of this amazing Pinot in our cellar. If you are interested in procuring a few bottles for

While it drinks well now, this concentrated wine will evolve and improve over the next decade.
