Winemaker Notes

Aromas of violet, ripe plum and black raspberry are complemented by exotic spices. The palate delivers a great concentration of fruit and soft tannins that linger on and on in the long finish.

Critical Acclaim

PR 93

Medium-deep ruby color; deep, ripe red cherry and earthy aromas; rich, deep, earthy red cherry flavors, some tannin and sweet oak notes; good structure and balance; long finish. Deep with great structure, this Pinot needs some time in the glass to open up.

WS 93
Wine Spectator

Pure and generous, explosive on the nose, rose petal and strawberry notes mingling with cherry and chocolate on the long and vivid finish. 93 points, non-blind.

The Wine Advocate

The 2008 Pinot Noir Estate contains fruit from all of the vineyard blocks and clones on the property. Dark ruby red, it displays an inviting bouquet of smoke, spice box, rose petal, incense, black cherry, and black raspberry. This leads to an intense, layered, spicy wine with enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years, excellent volume, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. It will provide prime drinking from 2012 to 2020.
