2018 RAEN Pinot Noir Royal St Robert Sonoma Coast
Wally's Price: $65
Raen's 2018 Pinot Noir Royal St. Robert is a fabulous introduction to these wines. Airy, gracious and beautifully perfumed, the Royal St. Robert is especially lifted in this vintage. Intense floral, savory and spice notes give the 2018 striking aromatic presence. The 100% whole clusters are evident, but also nicely layered into the wine's fabric. This is an especially ethereal style. I would prefer to give the 2018 a year or two in bottle, as it is a bit clenched, especially on the finish. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

2018 RAEN Pinot Noir Sea Field Vineyard
Wally's Price: $100
Pale to medium ruby, the 2018 Pinot Noir Sea Field Vineyard opens to delicate aromas of raspberries, red berries, rose petals, woodsmoke and graphite. The light to medium-bodied palate offers nuanced flavor layers in a bright, grainy frame with a long, lifted finish. - Wine Advocate
