Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar Annual Coverage of California’s North Coast came out yesterday and there was a lot of praise and accolades but my favorite by far was what Josh Raynolds says about our 2011 Coupe d’ Or. You can read all of our reviews on this pdf.
Donkey & Goat 2011 Roussanne/Marsanne Coupe D’Or El Dorado Hazy gold. Ripe peach and quince aromas and flavors are complemented by notes of ginger, honey and white pepper, with a lime zest nuance adding lift. A wild, expansive and deeply flavored, unfiltered wine that shows impressive intensity and chewy texture, with serious weight on the finish. Highly intriguing, but it’s bound to freak out those used to squeaky clean, polite wines. 90pts
