This wine offers dark and complex blackberry, with mineral and orange peel notes. It tends to be a bit earthier than our Russian River or Sonoma Coast wines. It is massively structured and will be the slowest wine to evolve.
93 points, Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar (May/June 2011): “…A potent bouquet…impressive intensity and depth…notes of anise, black tea and bitter chocolate…very long, penetrating finish…built to age.”
92 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (Oct. 11): "Here is a Pinot that hits all the right marks from fruity focus and balance to richness and range. It leads with deep, well-extracted aromas of dark cherries, dusty earth spice, sweet oak and dried violets, and its layered flavors follow suit. While it is impressively stuffed, it is always well-structured, and its firm, lightly tannic, long-lasting finish is the mark of a Pinot that is destined to age famously."
PinotFile, “Very Good” (July 18, 2011): “…offering aromas of black cherries and baking spices and flavors of black raspberries and juicy red plums all wrapped in soft tannins…The
mouth feel is pure silk…”
Just 396 cases made. Drink now or hold 6-8 years, if you have the patience.
