Press 

"With a luscious texture, as well as terrific purity, (the 2012 Turbine Proprietary White) is an example of why California is now the epicenter for great wines. A revelation, it can be consumed over the next several years."

Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate, Issue #216, Dec 30, 2014

"Part of a growing (and good) trend in winemaking, Jennifer has hands-on experience working on both sides of the fine-wine equation—she has worked for an agricultural technology consulting firm as well as spent time in service as assistant winemaker at Carneros Pinot pioneer MacRostie Winery. Jennifer’s Anaba wines are full of texture and nuance and are the best examples of her understanding of what it takes to make terrific wines. In addition to Pinot, Anaba's offering include Chardonnay, red and white Rhone blends, a rose, Mourvedre, Riesling and late harvest/dessert wines. Pinot bottlings include a Sonoma Coast blend and vineyard designates from Gap's Crown Vineyard from Sonoma Coast, Las Brisas in Carneros and Soberanes Vineyard from the Santa Lucia Highlands."  

Greg Walter – PinotReport, Issue 84, February 15, 2013

"(The 2012 Anaba Pinot Noir, Soberanes Vineyard) brings out the best in Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir."

The Prince of Pinot, Rusty Gaffney – PinotFile, Volume 9, Issue 48, Oct 6, 2014

"A winery to watch, Anaba has a talented winemaker in Jennifer Marion, who works with fruit from Anaba's own estate, and from Gap's Crown, Teldeschi and Alder Springs, among others"

 "…2010 Petite Sirah Teldeschi Vineyard…is a fabulous Petite Sirah (the most underrated and long-lived grape in California) that can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years."

Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate, Issue #210, Dec 30, 2013

"…Sonoma’s Anaba continues to make gains with Syrah, Pinot and Chardonnay."

James Laube – Wine Spectator Tasting Highlights, April 1, 2013

"They are solid and well-crafted fruit-driven examples of Pinot Noir."
