This is not your typical fruit forward California Pinot Noir. It's reminiscent of a more Burgundian style of wine rarely found in California. Deep in color, the wine exhibits a deft balance with plenty of structure and complexity to age and evolve over the next 10 to 15 years. There are harmonious notes of black cherry, plum and earthy mocha that come singing through. The wine is full on the palate with ripe tannins and a longer lingering finish.
92 points, Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar (May 2012): “A heady, powerfully scented bouquet…long, sappy and focused finish…”
92 points, Pinot Report (July 2012): “…needs at least an hour to open up…built for aging…”

91 points, Connoisseurs' Series (June 2012): “... intriguing complexity, first in its buoyant aromas of red cherries, dusty spice and dried flowers..."
Just 143 cases made. Drink now or hold up to 10-15 years.
