Phil and Aaron Lieberman have a thing for dirt. It’s not just on their clothes, tires and boots – it’s apparently in their genes as well. This is awkward for a couple of fussbudgets, but they are able to express that side of their personalities in the wine production process. There is an unwavering quality standard for each of the wines that wears the Cottonwood label. That is why in the 2002 vintage 6 barrels of very high quality wine became Brigette Catherine Pinot noir, a barrel select bottling, and the rest became Marina Piper Pinot noir. By contrast, in the 2003 vintage there was no barrel select bottling, the best quality wines became Marina Piper Pinot noir, and 8 barrels were deemed inadequate to Cottonwood standards and were sold to another winery. In 2004 all of the Pinot noir was blended to Marina Piper. In 2005 six special barrels again stood out as worthy for another bottling of Brigette Catherine Pinot noir, with the rest going into Marina Piper. – Description from Nerevar

Do you guys know anything about the wines or wineri... Read More

  • Hello all!! My husband and I enjoy wine. He is really good at picking blind, but then he favors Chiantis and Maison Louis Jadot and has never gone wrong. He can even pick, let's say a Portuguese wine -which we love- and it will be good.I, on the other hand, love to read about wine and investigate. I don't always do as well. For example, I just w...

    Just had a bottle this week and the wine is fantastic. I'm a bit surprised given the age. It's very well integrated, but still nicely acidic and fruity. Read More
