Occasional Wine Note: Aubert Pinot Noirs really embody that Burgundian style of wine. Full bodied, earthy, complex, balanced acidity, with fantastic red fruits on the nose and palate. This one is just about as good as Aubert's flagship CIX Vineyard Pinot. It will be tough for you to go back to those light, bright California-style Pinots after this one.

  • Vinous

    Critic Score: 95

    The 2021 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley) is dense, heady and explosive. All the classic Russian River exuberance comes through, but amplified in all of the good ways and none of the bad. Even with all of the richness and intensity, the 2021 retains good freshness as well as energy. A touch of whole clusters brightens the finish nicely.

    Critic Score: 93

    Plenty of dried strawberry with black cherry and hints of chocolate. Full and very fresh with orange-peel and floral undertones. Vivid fruit. Tangy. About 15% whole cluster. Drink or hold.
