~MAVERICK~ is hosting their sixth winemaker dinner, hosting Anderson Valley's Eric Sterling of Esterlina Vineyards. Executive chef Scott Youklis has designed a delish four-course dinner to pair with the wines—you can check it out on the website here. That night they will be pouring the 2005 Russian River Chardonnay, 2004 Estate Anderson Valley Pinot Noir, 2002 Cole Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon, and Ruby Zinfandel Port (non-vintage).
More on Esterlina from the press release: “Esterlina Vineyards is a Sterling family operated California boutique winery located near the Mendocino coast, nestled in the highlands above Philo. They produce a variety of exceptional fine wines in limited quantities from grapes grown primarily in the family's own vineyards including their own Cole Ranch Vineyard.
Esterlina wines are handcrafted—there is no assembly line manufacturing case after case. The Sterling family grows the grapes, makes the wine, and bottles each varietal they offer. While numerous vintners and brand wines offer similar varietals, few wineries make their wines the way they do: bottle by bottle.”
