Have you ever chosen a new wine off of a restaurant wine list and been floored by its quality the moment it touched your lips?  If you frequent some of the small restaurants in Mendocino County, chances are it’s happened to you…  There are a lot of tiny production wines being crafted from revered vineyards, and produced by talented young winemakers that most people will never hear about.  Waits-Mast is a prime example, and the wine was brought to life by winemaker Shalini Sekhar, whom you might not know (yet).  But chances are you probably recognize some of the places that she’s worked, liked Williams-Selyem, ROAR and Copain to name a few.  On the palate the wine is immediately recognizable as something truly special, with penetrating blue fruits, superior focus, and with a velvet-lined mouthfeel that’s both light on it’s feet and powerfully compelling.  At under $40 you really should give this a try…

The 2017 Mendocino County Pinot Noir was created around a barrel selection of two of the wineries single-vineyard Pinot Noirs, Oppenlander and Nash Mill, (which each retail for around $50.) The tension and balance created between the two sites really makes this wine sing… The quality of fruit is palpable along with the skilled winemaking and care that went into crafting it.  A minuscule 135 cases were produced, so don’t hesitate to secure yours.

Winery Notes: "The medium garnet color of this wine gives way to bright red fruits often exhibited in Oppenlander, layered with spicier notes of clove and nutmeg that we frequently find in the Nash Mill site. The blend showcases bright red cherry on the palate with zingy acidity and a plush finish layered with notes of spice, creamy toast, and a touch of forest floor. This wine will drink well right out of the bottle, but will continue to develop over the next 3-5 years."
