"The 2017 Pinot Noir Wendling Vineyard Block E is fabulous. Rich, deep and explosive, the 2017 packs a serious punch. Super-ripe dark cherry, hard candy, spice and sweet floral notes all race out of the glass. In this range, the Wendling stands out for its striking inner perfume and captivating beauty. There is so much to like. This is one of the most complete, multi-dimensional wines in the range. Today, the Wendling is superb. 94-97 points

As usual, Ted Lemon offers terrific perspective that comes from both experience and working across a number of sites in both Sonoma and Anderson Valley. Lemon told me he saw more fruit that needed to be sorted out because of heat in Anderson Valley than in Sonoma. "Two thousand seventeen was a warm year," Ted Lemon opined. "But I also saw many days with wider temperature gradients from coastal to inland sites than I am used to." As for the wines, they are superb. Among the 2017s, my impression is that the Pinots have a bit more potential than the Chardonnays. The Wendling in particular is shaping up to be a real gem. The bottled 2016s have turned out as I had expected."
