    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep vibrant red color. Delicate floral notes of rose petal and lilac give way to rich aromas of raspberry compote. Flavors emerge with pomegranate and cranberry with hints of graphite and other minerals. The wine's texture is elegant and smooth across the palate with an enduring finish. Ready to drink upon release or cellar through 2016.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Selected from Flowers's most recent planting, 43 acres rising from 1,400 to 1,875 feet above the Pacific, with views of the fog and the ocean below. The best wines from this vineyard have shown glimmers of grand cru sophistication and this 2009 develops in a way that parallels a great Burgundy. It starts off meaty, seemingly simple in its directness, until it begins to deepen, the tannins going through an adolescent moment with a character like spiced tea and cheese rind. By the next day, those tannins have turned toward a ferrous minerality and the wine is racy, dense, floral, as red as persimmon, powerful in an oceanic sense. If you don't believe there is terroir character in California pinot noir, spend some time at this vineyard, then go home and taste this wine.
