It’s a long way from Mankato, Minnesota, to the Central Coast of California, but Stephen Ross Dooley harnessed the tailwinds of passion and heeded the pull of the grapes. Here’s what happens when the whisper of a passion becomes the clear voice of a life aligned with purpose.
"2013 Stephen Ross Stone Corral Vineyard Pinot Noir. Game, licorice, orange, cranberry, cedar, dark cherry and spice are a handful of the aromas and flavors you'll find in this luscious wine. And only 106 cases were made".
Thank you, Cori Solomon for the write up on our Flying Cloud Sauvignon Blanc!
"The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of grass and peach with flavors of tropical fruit and stone fruit. This is a bright fresh wine that exudes a delicate balance and perfect minerality. There are hints of grass but not overpowering as often found in Sauvignon Blancs. The wine is clean, crisp and very refreshing."
We had a great time at World of Pinot Noir this past weekend. It is, as always, incredible to see Pinot Noir from all over the world under one roof.
Randy Carparoso had a few things to say. Check out his blog posting here
2013 Stephen Ross, Stone Corral Vineyard (Edna Valley) – Intoxicating, sensuous strawberry/black cherry perfumes with an allspice "complexity" (I hate that word in wine lingo, but there you go). Pinot purity in the mouth; soft, velvety entry, becoming broad, round, downright voluptuous in the middle, and dense and layered towards the finish.
