Aubert Fall Release - Save the Date

#1 Post by Anthony Z » June 16th, 2020, 5:23 pm

Didn’t see a thread for this. Got an email today for the fall release:
Our Fall 2020 wine allocations will be available on Tuesday, July 14th at 9:00 am PST. This release is for our 2018 Single Vineyard Pinot Noirs, 2018 Hudson Vineyard Chardonnay, and our Appellation Chardonnays, 2018 Carneros and 2019 Russian River. The reviews of our 2018 Single Vineyards have been published in the Press section of our website.
This will be my first release. I’m looking forward to it! I’m aware that Aubert is generally fantastic, but are there any standouts this year?

My credit card actually cringed when I got that email.

It made my budget resolve shrivel like George Castanza in cold water.

Congrats on your first release! It definitely makes a dent on the bank account, but they always have great wines. I was happy to get onto the list in college. I took a little break from my allocation and just got back on to years ago. I am looking forward to this year. I'm not sure about standouts this year though. They are basically almost always solid. Chards are especially well regarded and I think their pinots are almost just as good personally.

Lauren is always my favorite, but I don't believe it is in this release.

The Aubert chards got me hooked, but the UV-SL Pinot is superb....

In this day and age of calendar creep where Christmas ads start appearing before Halloween, it was inevitable that we would see a “fall” offer in mid-July, more than two months before the autumnal equinox.

The offering period for Aubert's fall release has opened in mid-July since the offering for the 2008 Pinot Noirs in July 2010 (with the exception of the 2011 offering on 2 August). Since the wines aren't "released" - shipped or available for pick up - until late October at the earliest, calling it a Fall Release doesn't seem too outrageous to me.

I was on the Waiting List, but was offered a case in the Spring. Bought it. But no "Save the Date" email for me. Emailed them to see what is going on.

I haven't had an Aubert PN yet. Are these typically wines that demand to be aged for awhile or are they approachable young-ish?

I find them approachable within 24 hours of delivery!

We recently had an extended family taste-off of 2016 Cali pinots and the Aubert crushed the competition. The Peter Michael Ma Danseuse came in second.

Contrarian viewpoint - while I love their chards, not a fan of the PNs. I just opened several of the 2012s over the past couple of months. All were syrupy and heavy alcohol. These are big wines and I didn't find much complexity.

Not my experience at all with the few '12s and '13s we've opened in the past six months or so. I found the wines far more restrained than one might expect from Aubert and wouldn't consider them syrupy or hot at all. One's not likely to confuse them with the current renditions of Pinot Noir from producers like Rhys, but neither are they like the overblown CA Pinots from the 1st decade of this century.

Was offered last year and bought Lauren, Eastside and Uv-SL. Don’t drink that much white. So debating if I want to buy it again.

Except for a few bottles here and there, Aubert is pretty much the only white wine I buy outside of Burgundy, and my white Burgundy purchases have really slowed down over the last decade (PremOx is alive and well).

Here's the response:
"You are high up on our Waiting List to receive a full allocation for our Spring 2021 release (January)."

They let quite a few people order wine this spring who weren't on the mailing list. If sales for wine are soft they will open it up to those of us on the waiting list. There's quite a lot of people who either aren't working, took a pay cut or just won't have expendable income to purchase lots of wine right now.

Yup. Was offered an allocation in the Spring. Took some... Not offered a Fall allocation and their response was thanks, but you're not on the Fall allocation- hopefully Spring 2021.
Bummer. Their wine is exceptionally good.

Same here. WAY too much heat, oak, and extraction. The Chards is somehow pull off that over the top style and still feel balanced, even to some people with a really old world palates. The PNs are, to me, close to undrinkable. I have had many, young and up to about 12 years old.

And that’s not to discount the opinion of anyone who loves the Reds. I know they have their fans. I just wish I had known to try a couple before I committed to buying so many along with the whites.

I'm excited to try their chardonnay. I literally just started buying whites late last year after tasting an aged Monte Bello chardonnay that grabbed my attention. I'll be throwing some business toward Walter Scott once summer is done with to add more of their chardonnay to the collection. Aubert can wait for now.

im in the same boat. i mean people on the list for the winter/spring allocation obviously passed, and i guess they're getting one more shot to buy for this offering. obviously the economy has affected many, unfortunately.
I'm hoping more people pass again and then get the permanent boot. we'll see what happens.

This is my first Aubert release, and I ordered:

2 2018 Hudson Vineyard Carneros Chardonnay (wish listed another)
2 2019 Russian River Chardonnay
2 2018 UV-SL Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Looking forward to trying them out. Reading some of the reviews on Cellar Tracker, here, and Galloni's reviews helped.

unless something changes recently, Aubert isnt a hard list to get on. Even after getting the boot they can get back on soon enough.

I loaded up this time around

UV pinot x2
UV-SL pinot x2
Hudson chard x1
Carneros chard x1
RRV chard x2

Looking forward to trying them all, especially the appellation chardonnays. At $65 each they seem to be great value based on CT reviews.

Yup. Was offered an allocation in the Spring. Took some... Not offered a Fall allocation and their response was thanks, but you're not on the Fall allocation- hopefully Spring 2021.
Bummer. Their wine is exceptionally good.
im in the same boat. i mean people on the list for the winter/spring allocation obviously passed, and i guess they're getting one more shot to buy for this offering. obviously the economy has affected many, unfortunately.
I'm hoping more people pass again and then get the permanent boot. we'll see what happens.
unless something changes recently, Aubert isnt a hard list to get on. Even after getting the boot they can get back on soon enough.
I was on the list in college and passed a couple of times and didn't receive any offers. I recently wrote them to get back on and they added me back onto the list. I'm not sure if I will get an allocation next time (likely not), but they were very kind and very fast to re-activate my account.

This was my first offer for pinots after two years on the list. I bought a lot of chards in the Spring offering and the special sale, so I went with a case of the pinots. If you got a
Spring offer, you'll probably get a pinot offer in a year or two, maybe sooner if the economic downturn continues.

I am beyond weak! So this month has been Rochioli, RM, Roy Piper, and Kutch still to go. So no Aubert...except 5 Pinots and 5 Chards.

It's tough to buy no Aubert this time around so I commend you for not buying "any". champagne.gif

Does anyone know why only one svd Chardonnay (Hudson) is offered on this release? Is it bottled later? Or needs additional bottle age?

Just a guess, but I think it's simply to balance the pain between the spring and fall releases. Hudson is a relatively new Chardonnay offering that's become available at the same time that a couple of new estate Chardonnay vineyards have been added. Around that time, Aubert lost a Pinot Noir vineyard source which reduced the Pinot Noir offerings.

No Hudson Chardonnay it appears :( . Nonetheless, very excited to be able to purchase some wine.

It looks like the UV and UV-SL Pinots received some very high scores from the critics. Might get a few of those in addition to the appellation Chards.
