    Winemaker's Notes:

    The aroma is defined by earth and forest floor, mushroom, moss, and damp earth. As the wine opens with air, these aromas give way to brambly raspberry and spice. The palate ranges from deep minerality and early bing cherries to orange zest and currant, but it is the taut core of acidity that drives this wine. We've rarely seen such concentration at these pH and alcohol levels at Bethel Heights, and it is a part of the reason Harvey Steiman calls 2008 a 'dream vintage.' This wine will reward those who seek immediate gratification, and also those seeking a well-rounded cellar.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Pinot Noir Estate Grown is a bit darker in color with an expansive, spicy bouquet, cherry, and black raspberry aromas leading to a wine with excellent concentration, layers of fruit, and enough ripe tannin to evolve for 2-3 years. This well-balanced, lengthy wine will be at its best from 2012 to 2020.
