    Winemaker's Notes:

    Soft garnet in color, delicate aromatics of oolong tea, mandarin orange, gardenia and sandalwood spring from the glass. Fruit components of pomegranate reduction, currants and guava weave along the palate with spice and herbal notes of pink peppercorn, thyme, clove and fennel seed. The mouthfeel is plush and velvety yet finishes with elegance and drive.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This shows the elegance of Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir. Dry and crisp in acidity, it has complex layers of sour cherry candy, white pepper and sandalwood, plus a touch of green herb. It evolves as it airs in the glass.

    Brigid Stanley (10/30/2013)
    An excellent example of a bold, yet balanced California Coastal Pinot noir. Slightly concentrated medium red fruit, velvety and smooth. Not a light Pinot in taste or texture, but with an elegant, brief finish.
