    Winemaker's Notes:

    #6 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

    Fragrant with ripe raspberry and holiday spice, this ruby-hued pinot noir is bursting with Russian River Valley character. Its firmly structured, silky palate unfolds in a tightly-knit weave of Bing cherry and blackberry with hints of Darjeeling tea and cardamom. Subtle earthiness adds depth and is balanced by bright acidity that punctuates a lengthy finish. Alcohol 14.6%

    Critical Acclaim:

    This classy 2008 exhibits wonderful aromatics of wild raspberry, anise, blackberry and spice, with touches of mineral and sage. Full-bodied and complex, this is vibrant, focused, intense and persistent. Drink now through 2016. 3,644 cases made.

    The 2008 Pinot Noirs include the beautiful 2008 Pinot Noir Russian River. Abundant plum sauce and black cherry jam intermixed with roasted herb, damp earth and currant notes are found in this impressive, full-bodied, spicy, luscious Pinot. It should drink well for 3-5 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Simply more open and inviting at the moment than Hobbs' Hyde bottling, this one delivers a lovely rendition of the highly energetic, keenly focused red cherry fruit that lifts Russian River Pinots to the top of the charts time and time again. It is tasty and balanced with plenty of room to grow but does not demand cellar aging so much as promising to be ever better with two or three years of time in bottle.
