The first Pinot Noir from this vineyard. Classic Pinot Noir traits confidently strut from the glass as the mid palate shoves it way to the front. Aged in 2 year old French oak barrels for 11 months, this wine shows it has the stuffing to go the distance in any situation. Pairs well with spring garden clean-up and lightly salted crisps.
This fuller-bodied Pinot Noir dazzles with aromas of blackcap raspberries, leather and coffee. There's also a lemon and lanolin note that's quite intriguing. Marionberry and lavender chocolate flavors unite with a savory meaty note, all backed by crisp acidity. The wine's graceful texture makes it a pleasure to sip. — Michael Alberty Wine Enthusiast
A precocious Pinot, this wine opens up immediately to reveal ripe black cherry and earthy, spicy aromas. Medium full on the palate, it comes across with a velvety smooth texture while delivering plenty of bright red cherry, plum flavors. Well-integrated tannins are part of the rounded, long finish. Attractive now, and probably best to drink over the next 3 to 4 years. Norm Roby Wine Reviews Online
