The reviews kept coming in and recognized Emily's Cuvee Pinot Noir as one of the best Russian River Pinot Noirs, at any price. The rest of the portfolio is pretty awesome too. (Check out the "LB" Chardonnay).
The current release of Robert Mueller wines features the epic 2007 vintage, with a very tasty 2006 Sonoma Coast Pinot thrown into the mix.
Mueller Vineyards 2007 Emily's Cuvee Russian River Pinot Noir $43.95/btl
The flagship wine in the Mueller portfolio, this is a gorgeous Pinot Noir with classic Russian River characteristics. Rich, dark cranberry color with aromas of Bing cherries, ripe raspberries, earth and clove leading to enveloping flavors of cherry-cola, strawberry, vanilla oak, and tea. Velvety texture, nice acid, and subtle tannins. Fleshy and balanced with a luscious mouth-feel.
A must get for all Russian River Pinot lovers!
Mueller Vineyards 2007 "LB" Chardonnay - RRV $29.95/btl
This has been a favorite of Chardonnay lovers all over the country. From the prized "Ledbetter" vineyard in the heart of the Russian River Valley, this bright yellow/golden wine first grabs you with its abundant tropical aromatics. Pineapple, pear and apple engulf the palate with added nuances of fresh baked bread, butterscotch, and creme brulee. Good acidity and toasty oak lead to long, luxurious finish.
Mueller Vineyards 2006 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir $27.95/btl
Only 93 cases produced of this beauty, a gorgeous Sonoma Coast Pinot with a little added layer of exotic spices to the black cherry, flowers, and Earl Grey tea nuances. The additional year of bottle age makes this wine very enjoyable now with seamless flavors, texture and complexity.
