WE 90 WS 88 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - So brisk in acidity, you can taste the ocean winds that chill this coastal vineyard at night. It’s also extraordinarily ripe. Few Pinot Noirs get this fruity. Floods the mouth with the essence of raspberries and cherries. The acidity and a firm minerality give it much needed structure.
According to Wine Spectator - A wine for the cellar that's very tight and structured, with dried berry, loamy earth, cedar, tobacco and sage notes. Full-bodied, with good acidity and tannins. Best from 2012 through 2020. 3,900 cases made.
Winemaker Notes - This Pinot Noir is a selection of the best wines produced during the harvest. We selected the groups with the best balance of tannin, flavor concentration, aroma and acidity. The resulting blend offers hints of sandalwood, wild blackberry and balsamic reduction, dried tea leaves, and a melange of Indian spices. This wine is serious, yet restrained, and has a backbone of natural acidity, tannin and minerality to provide the structure necessary for aging. Rated 90+
