2015 Ratio Johnson Vineyard Chardonnay

The 2015 Johnson Vineyard Chardonnay was on the very earliest side of harvest to avoid the excessively tropical characteristics of clone 76 Chardonnay. The flinty nose still tends towards pineapple, but I prefer to call it (and think about it) as chamomile and Meyer lemon. With time in glass, more Chardonnay-ey notes of nutmeg and (very subtle) vanilla bean emerge. The palate is racy in its youth: electric and pure with hints of the power that it will have in a year or two in bottle. You can feel the potential in this wine and, if I were to (hopefully intelligently) guess, this wine will be beautiful in 3 years and will begin to show aged Chablis–like nuance in 5-10 years. I love this wine for its ability to draw you back for another sip.

2016 Ratio Pinot Blanc

I can’t help but think “yellow” when I smell this wine. Yellow plum, yellow apple, pineapple, mango and some sort of exotic melon combine with toasted oats and chalky/mineral notes on the nose. The palate is soft and fresh with a fresh pop of tropical fruit at mid that leads to juicy apple and pineapple on the finish. With time, this is sure to develop nuance and spice, as well as fat to complement the fresh acidity. This is a great way to start a meal and holds up to a wide range of fish and white meat dishes where the delicacy of the wine’s palate can enhance the dish.

2016 Ratio Jessie James Pinot Noir

The 2016, made with 25% whole cluster, explodes from the glass with juicy red and black fruits intermingled with cocoa, tobacco, iron, and sandalwood. You might think there is new oak here, but it was made entirely in neutral barrels; the stems add the woody complexity. The lack of new wood and the nature of this site make for an incredibly pure finish that stands out against other wines. The supple palate is bright and fresh with surprising vitality: cranberry with a pop of Meyer lemon. Together all these traits warrant time in the bottle.
