In December, Wine Spectator magazine announced the 2014 Beaux Freres Pinot Noir Ribbon Ridge as their #3 Wine of the Year. 

Note: This new release has not been rated yet but we will sell out way before those points are published.

Background
Robert Parker, Jr. is one of three owners in Beaux Frères vineyard and winery. His interest in the property was spurred by his brother-in-law, Michael Etzel, who discovered the property in 1986. Robert lives in Maryland with his wife Pat, Michael's older sister, their daughter Maia, and various Basset hounds and Bulldogs. For thirty- two years, he has written and published the independent wine journal "The Wine Advocate" and authored twelve best-selling books on wine. Robert is the first wine critic in history, and one of only a handful of foreigners to have received the highest honors from France (Officer in the Legion of Honor from President Jacques Chirac), Italy (Commander in the National Order of Merit from Prime Minister Silvio Berlesconi), and Spain (recipient of the Great Cross of Santa Cruz from King Juan Carlos). Robert never reviews Beaux Frères for his publications, but you will find his imprint in the winery's tasting notes, and more importantly, in the philosophy that governs Beaux Frères and its pursuit of excellence.
