    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Pinot Noir Horseshoe Vineyard is the most virile wine in this lineup. Black cherries, mint, iron and crushed rocks come together in this dramatic, generous Pinot. The fleshiness of the fruit nearly covers the tannins, but they are lurking beneath the wine’s considerable fleshiness. Menthol, pine and a host of other dark, balsamic notes wrap around the insistent, powerful finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

    The Wine Advocate

    Vivid ruby. Captivating, exotic aromas of red and dark berries, cherry skin, smoky Moroccan spices and incense, with a sexy floral quality that gains power with air. Impressively pure, incisive raspberry and cherry flavors show emphatic spiciness and a suave rose pastille quality. Silky tannins add shape to the very long, bracing finish. This wine is awfully delicious right now but really deserves a few more years in the cellar.
