    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine is a great example of the maturity of Stoller Vineyards these days, with an emphasis on the full-bodied reds from a ripe year. The spice and fruit complement each other nicely, with highlights of clove and nutmeg all the way to cinnamon hard candies. Dark, yet bright fruits such as plum and cherry are ever-present, and a mix of dark chocolate and cigar box put finishing touches on the wine for the evening.

    This could be a meal in itself, but we recommend sharing it with others and pairing with an appropriate holiday meal. The silky tannins and amazing length may as well have come from a ribbon around your favorite gift this year.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Light and juicy, this is bright with plum and currant fruit playing against refined tannins and fragile acidity, lingering on the transparent finish. This has all the elements, just needs cellaring. Drink now through 2017. 464 cases made.

    Deep, bright red. Blackberry, cola, violet and mocha on the nose, with complicating notes of Asian spices and musky herbs. Fleshy and penetrating on the palate, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors braced by gentle acidity. The dark berry note recurs on the long, sappy finish, which features a sexy floral quality. Delicious right now.

    International Wine Cellar

    Ripe and firm at once, this generous red possesses a smoky oak top note, with hints of cocoa over ripe black cherry fruit. On the palate the wine seems frisky and forward, its textbook pinot flavors marked by plenty of power and extraction, going to the brink, then pulling back.
