Pretty, brilliant garnet color and aromas of red cherries and wild, red raspberries fill the glass along with smoky, toasty layers of spices, black tea, mineral and earthy, forest floor. On the palate, the entry is lean and focused with flavors mirroring the aromas. The fruit flavors flirt back and forth between red pie cherries and raspberries alongside earthy, forest duff. The texture builds from the beginning through to a long persistent finish. With time, the flavors continue to evolve on the palate bringing black licorice and savory, spiced meats.

91 points, Connoissuers' Guide (10/11): “Nicely ripened, fit with a trim bit of oak and keenly focused on pure Pinot Noir fruit, this wine exhibits a certain calm and refinement even while showing what might be best called a sneaky sense of richness..."

PinotFile, Very Good (July 1, 2011): “…Another beautifully crafted wine with a luscious core of berry flavors, well-integrated oak, supple tannins, satiny mouth feel…”
