"Marin County locals Mary and Anthony Bourke produce a fine Russian River pinot noir that positively exudes the deep dark color and fruit so reminiscent of the terroir of Green Valley. Hale Mary pinot (the pun should need no explaining) was originally produced in the Bourkes' Marin County garage, however they now produce about 300 cases annually at the Freeman Winery in Sebastopol. Hale Mary is featured on many local wine lists and is a real treat." -- BarFly columnist Jeff Burkart in the December 23,2012 Marin Independent Journal

2014 Russian River Pinot Noir
A return to the silky elegance of 2012 with balanced dark cherry fruit up front, wonderful mid-palate weight and sweetness, and good acid on the finish.  We did not use whole cluster fermentation in 2014 so it is slightly less spicy than our 2013.  The wine is drinking beautifully now and will age gracefully for another 5-10 years.

2015 Russian River Chardonnay
Our first ever Chardonnay is a balanced, medium bodied wine aged exclusively in one year French oak barrels. This vintage went through full malolactic fermentation and we stirred the lees for 6 of its 11-month life in barrel.  In the mouth the wine has a clean purity of Russian River fruit with nicely balanced acid on the finish.  It is a great food beverage and pairs beautifully with fish, poultry summer appetizers.  The wine is drinking very well now and will continue to develop for 5-8 years in the bottle.

To order the Pinot Noir, please contact Katrina at katrina@halemarywine.com or (415) 496-6304.
