    Winemaker's Notes:

    This single-vineyard designate is predominantly from the densest plantings of Pinot Noir at our Stoller Vineyards and provides great concentration of fruit, with good acid backbone. There typically is an earthy, sweet cherry fruit core, soft and broad, with occasional threads of herb.

    A moderate garnet and brilliant wine, this Stoller is as lush as it gets, with red cherry–black cherry aromatics, a soft and velvety palate, and a mix of fresh red fruit and earth flavors. It finishes with intriguing sour cherry and very light tannin. Perfectly balanced, with good acid in this cool vintage, even at our warmest site. Look for very long aging. One of the best vintages from Stoller, ever.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Light and tangy, with a strong mineral character running through the deftly balanced plum and currant fruit, the airy texture letting the finish hang like a cloud with impressive length. Defines finesse. Drink now through 2018.

    The 2008 Pinot Noir Stoller Vineyard exhibits a racier, slightly leaner, but elegant style with the focus on cherry and raspberry aromas and flavors. It is a wine of finesse that has concentration, precision, and balance. It will continue to blossom over the next 1-2 years and deliver prime drinking from 2012 to 2018.

    Bright ruby. Bitter cherry, dark berries, pungent flowers and dark chocolate on the nose. Juicy, pure dark berry and spice flavors offer very good depth and surprising precision. Nicely round if not exactly fleshy, with a youthfully bitter cherry skin note emerging with air. Finishes with supple tannins, a note of bitter chocolate and attractive lingering perfume. I'd hold onto this one for another three to four years before cracking it. 90(+?)
