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.

Tasting Notes

JS97
Dried strawberry and cedar with sandalwood on the nose. White pepper as well. Full body, round and rich yet austere at the finish. Love quality of tannins . Juicy and savory. Excellent intensity. Drink now or hold.
WA93+
The tightest of the three Pinot Noirs, was the 2015 Pinot Noir UV-SL. This Pinot Noir, made from equal parts Calera and a Vosne-Romanée clone, shows terrific fruit intensity, slightly higher acids and more tannin in a more backward style. It certainly needs time to fully unleash its considerable personality, and in a way, it seemed to suffer in comparison with its two more flamboyant siblings. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2032.
