Using fruit mostly from the Bassi Ranch property he recently acquired, Mike Sinor delivers a bright, minerally wine, with aromas of scratched grapefruit skin, orange and peach juice, burned lemons, sea salt, ripe apples and nectarines and fresh-cut herbs. Flavors of salty, lime-juice nectarines emerge once sipped, with hints of butter and white flowers.
Light, bright yellow. Fresh Meyer lemon, pear and jasmine scents are underscored by a zesty mineral quality. Taut, racy and precise, showing firm grip to its spicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors. In a bright, nervy style, with very good closing cut and resonating minerality. While he maintains his day job as winemaker for Ancient Peaks, Mike Sinor has also been accelerating his efforts at his own winery, which he owns with his wife Cheri LaVallee. Sinor was the winemaker at Domaine Alfred (now called Chamisal) from 2000 to 2006 and his own wines, which emphasize elegance over power, reflect his work there, as well as his six years as assistant winemaker at Byron. In 2013 Sinor and LaVallee bought a 13-acre vineyard near the coast that they have named Bassi; the wines reviewed here were all made from fruit grown on their land.
