Scherrer 2002 Fort Ross Vineyard Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast)

  1. $38
Tasted alongside Scherrer’s regular Sonoma Coast Pinot, this one’s considerably richer and crisper. It’s tart in fresh young acids, with marvelously complex waves of cherries, pomegranates, cola, sweet rhubarb, espresso and pepper, in a silky-smooth texture. Offers compellingly good drinking.  — S.H.  (11/15/2005)

Scherrer 2002 Laguna Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley)

  1. $35
I don’t know why Scherrer’s Laguna bottling costs the same as their regular Russian River Pinot, because it’s a better wine. Firmly structured in acids and tannins, it shows waves of cherries, black raspberries, cola, sweet leather, rhubarb and spices that are endlessly complex and rewarding.  — S.H.  (11/15/2005)

Scherrer 2001 Scherrer Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Alexander Valley)

  1. $42
Both of Scherrer’s ’01 Cabs are quite distinctive, but this vineyard designate is superior both in terms of flavor and structure. It’s a big wine that rewards in cassis, black currants and cocoa, and even though it’s very soft, it’s layered and complex.  — S.H.  (11/15/2005)

Scherrer 2002 Fort Ross Vineyard Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast)

  1. $28
Deliciously firm and complex, this Chard shows well-ripened tropical fruit flavors with a mineral-and-steel tanginess and high acidity. It’s well-oaked, but those sappy, charry vanilla flavors really play well against the fruit.  — S.H.  (11/15/2005)

Scherrer 2002 Fort Ross Vineyard Reserve Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast)

  1. $28
Released at the same price as Scherrer’s regular Chard from this vineyard, this one’s more intense and focused in tropical fruit. It may have more oak, too, to judge from the flamboyant spice and vanilla. Either way, it’s a darned good wine.  — S.H.  (11/15/2005)

Scherrer 1999 Old Mature Vines Zinfandel (Alexander Valley)

  1. $28
Rich, plush and loaded with blackberry, cassis, raspberry, tar and chocolate flavors. Tangy acidity and firm, ripe tannins carry the wine neatly along the palate in an elegant blend that’s showing beautifully now and should age nicely, too.  — J.M.  (3/1/2002)

Scherrer 2002 Helfer Vineyard Chardonnay (Russian River Valley)

  1. $35
Spicy and rich, this Chard is a bit softer than Scherrer’s Fort Ross bottling, and is also leesy and oaky. The flavors are of peaches and apples. It shows a balanced complexity throughout.  — S.H.  (11/15/2005)

Scherrer 2001 Scherrer Old & Mature Vines Zinfandel (Alexander Valley)

  1. $28
Fairly densely structured, with lots of toasty oak up front. Black cherry, blackberry, cassis, plum, cedar, spice, coffee and chocolate are well integrated into a complex whole.  — W.E.  (11/1/2003)
