Eric Kent is a small, boutique producer in Sonoma County (about 3500 cases total per year, most wines are allocation-only), focusing their efforts on small lot Pinot, Chard, Sauv Blanc and Syrah. Though small, they’ve made waves with the critics, earning plenty of 90+ scores for their distinctive, savory, age-worthy wines.

Today’s Sascha Marie Pinot, named after the owners’ daughter, is mainly sourced from a vineyard in the northern end of the Petaluma Gap and another located on the western side of the AVA. This is a richer style of Pinot, but still has the classic, vibrant expression of Sonoma Coast. Notes of black raspberries, rhubarb, pomegranate and cherry encompass accents of cedar, forest floor, vanilla and warm spice. Its integrated tannins and lively acidity will make this a cellar-worthy wine that can enjoy at least another 5 years of rest, though is certainly a delight to enjoy now.

There you have it! If you haven’t bought some yet, what are you waiting for? Tomorrow? When it’s all gone? We’ve got 20ish cases to sell, so you better hustle! Shipping included on 4+ bottles, only $116 a 4-pack.

THE STORY TO KNOW

Kent Humphrey is a self proclaimed “hyper-enthusiastic” wine geek since college (writing volumes of tasting notes and spending all of his disposable income on wine), it wasn’t until age 33 that Eric worked his first harvest. He had a single goal in mind: to someday hold up a bottle of world-class wine and say to himself, “I made this.”

"Today I’m fascinated to discover that my goal is never-ending… the pursuit of making fine wine goes on forever. Each vintage brings new challenges and triumphs, more discoveries and deeper desires. Palates evolve, knowledge grows, new vineyards beckon, ideas flow. It’s really about the journey after all." -Kent Humphrey
