Producer Notes

Auteur concentrates on just two varietals, but produces them stunningly: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from California and Oregon. Winemaker and owner Kenneth Juhasz and his wife and partner Laura believe that their success stems from selecting vineyards situated in cool climates as well as focusing on the masculine and feminine personalities of these two varietals.

Big time disapointment. Lacked depth. Opened flat and did not develop with air. Definitely not worth the price of admission.

This is not in such a great place right now. Wicked deep purple; reticent nose of violets; concentrated cherry but thick tannins and heavy acidity--despite an overnight treatment of slow-o, decanting then Vinturi-ing, it would not open up. Left it open a second night and it turned plum/prune on me (odd for a pinot...). This is either in deep hibernation or had poor storage somewhere in the delivery chain (note: this was on of the rare Auteurs I did not source from the winery directly.) Will let the remaining 2 lie for sometime. 90 points because if the components ever integrate it will be stellar.

It is too overdone for my tasting. It lacks the finesse and minerality so common of burgundy wines.

Pleasant to drink but with no real structure. Finish fades quickly with a little tartness.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
