Fragrances of ripe cherry and cola are a prelude to exuberant, complex berry and spice flavors that won’t quit. This is a silky smooth Pinot Noir, very well-balanced, with excellent acidity.

93 points, Connoisseurs’ Guide (February 2011): “…very deep and wonderfully well-focused effort shows fine concentration with black cherries to spare…firmly fixed on ample young fruit…fairly rich…It is a couple of years away from reaching what promises to be its very impressive best.”

90 points, Wine Spectator (March 31, 2011): “A wine that wows you with finesse, combining rich, pure ripe fruit with a measure of delicacy, with spicy cherry, mineral and strawberry flavors that are focused, medium-bodied and complex.”

Pairs beautifully with lamb, eggplant dishes, spicy roast chicken, salmon bisque, grilled Portobello mushrooms, wood-roasted pork and seared scallops.

Drink now or cellar for another 12 years.

This wine was recently featured in The California Wine Club's wine of the month club.
