Wine Advocate: Sonoma County 2018 Vintage
USA, California, Sonoma County: 2018 Vintage
Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
Bob has taught me many great lessons but the one that I’d have to say is the most valuable is his attention to detail and the importance not just of “what” needs to be done but “when” it needs to be done. Winemaking is a long list of hundreds of decisions and if you do things too early or wait until too late it can be just as bad (or worse) than not doing them at all. Furthermore, if you can do each one of those steps just a little bit better, at just the right time, the cumulative effect of those incremental benefits can add up to a truly stunning wine.
