Mosby Cortese Santa Barbara County la Donna 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit sharp on the nose very polleny and somewhat balsamic, earthy, and smelling of natural yeast? A touch lower in acid than I would like but nicely mineral with a broad, creamy mid-palate filled with melon tinged citrus pith flavors that end with solid savory, earthy length. Pure, fresh and slightly grapy with a touch of spearmint on the apple fruited finish. 86pts

Bill’s winemaking interests began during his early college wrestling days in Oregon almost 50 years ago. "I fermented anything I could get my hands on," says Mosby. "I was — and still am — intrigued by the whole process." When Bill talks about his early winemaking days, he does so with an air of excitement. "As much science as we know today — technology and all that — we have barely scratched the surface when it comes to understanding the alchemic nature of wine," he explains. If you've visited the winery, then you’ve tasted his award-winning wines, caught a glimpse or two of his vineyards, and are somewhat familiar with his eccentricities. When asked to describe winemaker Bill Mosby’s character, wife Jeri answers with a smile: "Strangely enough, I would describe my husband much the same way I would characterize his wines. He’s about integrity, intelligence, strength, tenacity, passion and complexity. He’s rebellious — not afraid to dream, then make those dreams come true." Read less
