Tasting Notes

WA96

Aubert’s 2011 Pinot Noir UV-SL Vineyard is easily the most refined of the wines in this range of Pinots. Intensely perfumed and layered – but not at all heavy – the UV-SL has all its elements in perfect balance. Savory herbs, licorice, mint, plums and black cherries all come to life in the glass, but ultimately, the 2011 stands out most for its silkiness, grace and exceptional overall balance. Expressive floral notes add considerable freshness on the close. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2026.

The Winery

Aubert Vineyards

Nothing better fosters a love and passion for winemaking than growing up on a Napa Valley winery. It inevitably ignites a spark within these few lucky folks but Mark Aubert is one of the few with that passion and the ability to execute it so adeptly. Aubert’s distinguished career began by working with renowned wine maker Helen Turley who also coaches Philippe Melka and Heidi Barrett.

In 1999 Aubert Vineyard was born and has been crafting outstanding vineyard-designate Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from estate and leased vineyards in the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast in a full-blown hedonistic style. Stylistically the wines are prefect representations of the terroir from which they grow, especially the Right-Bank approach to his Howell Mountain Bordeaux blend.

Aubert has quickly became one of the most highly sought after wines in California and with a small production of 4,000 cases per annum, they are harder and harder to find and available primarily via the mailing list. Using his experience with some of California's most prestigious producers, Mark has created a brand that rivals all Pinot and Chardonnay in the New World. This is especially true for the 86 Futo- a Pinot Noir project with Abreu, which was bestowed 95 pts from Parker. Impossible to leave unmentioned when discussing Aubert is his 99pt Parker awarded Reuling Vineyard- the utmost score ever given to a New World Chardonnay.
