New Releases from Attune Wines

Attune Wines was founded in 2011 by Mike and Nancy Scribner, Ken and Debbie Venner and David Povlak. The winery currently produces a Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Rosé. Kenneth Juhasz is the consulting winemaker. Kenneth also owns Auteur Wines and works with other labels including Donum Estate, Pali Wine Company and Gary Farrell.

I recently was fortunate to try the newest releases from the winery.

2012 Attune Pinot Noir – From the Estate Vineyard in Carneros. Bright red in color. 14.4% ABV. Big nose of black fruits, Christmas spice and anise. Medium to full body with mouth watering acidity. Big in structure but well balanced. Black cherry, cranberry and sarsaparilla on the palate. The wine finishes strong. Big and bold without being over the top. Will benefit from a year or two in the cellar and drink well over the next 4-6 years. $48 at the winery. My rating: 92 points.

2013 Attune Chardonnay – Straw colored. 14.1% ABV. Big nose of citrus fruits, pears and spice. Lush and creamy on the palate. Flavors of lemon curd, key lime and Granny Smith apples. The finish is long and spicy. Delicious Chardonnay. Drink over the next 2-3 years. $36 at the winery. My rating: 93 points.

2014 Attune Rosé of Pinot Noir – Light red/orange in color. 13% ABV. Red fruits, watermelon and spice on the nose. Strawberry, cherry and tangerine on the palate. Dry and delicious. Super rosé. Drink this Summer. $28 at the winery. My rating: 91 points.

Reviews based on samples provided by the winery.

There is much to like about Attune Wines. The product in the bottle is of high quality. The attention to every detail of the process is admirable. Certainly a winery to keep an eye on.
