I first discovered Karah wines at the 2013 Harvest Festival, where they won a Gold Medal for their 2009 Pinot Noir. Made with grapes from the Petaluma Gap area of Sonoma, it is a lush, berry flavored pinot with spice and complexity. The $16 price is shocking for this good of a wine. So we visited the winery last weekend. Jason Baker, the winemaker, took us through 2 years of Chardonnay and 4 years of Pinot. I liked all of them except for the 2011 Pinot, which is a bit tart (think cranberry flavors instead of dark cherry). We also got to taste the 2013 Pinot in the barrel, which was already amazing! The tasting room has a great view and the people are so welcoming. Next time, we'll bring a picnic. On top of all this, the prices are hard to believe for this quality of wine. So come visit now, before they raise the prices. This is my "find of the year" for 2013.
