Help - US Wine Advice

Posted by Stephen Harvey, Jul 18, 2010.

I am looking for some advice on some good examples of the following US wines

  • Pinot Noir
  • Chardonnay
  • Cabernet Sauvignon

In terms of price point I am not really fussed but am intersted in a wine you rate as 95+/100.

My purpose is that I want to organise a tasting/dinner to compare US wines to Australian and NZ wine.

Thanks in advance for your help

  • 2005 Marcassin Pinot Noir Marcassin Vineyard
  • 1998 Kistler PN Occidental Station Vineyard Cuvee Elizabeth
  • 2004 Marcassin Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard
  • 2004 Rochiloli Chardonnay South River Vineyard
  • 1997 Shafer Cabernet Hillside Select
  • 2001 Harlan Estate Cabernet
  • 1997 Bryant Family Cabernet
  • 2002 Quilceda Creek Cabernet

To name a few. Good line-up. I'm sure others can chime in on their ideas.
