Wine Enthusiast Review
Rated 94
EDITORS CHOICE

While quite ripe and fruity, this wine is also dry, nicely tannic and firmly textured, so it will pair beautifully with rich proteins. Aged 18 months in oak, mostly French, it has concentrated dark fruit aromas, and a layered array of flavors that recalls blueberry, dark chocolate and blackberry syrup. Bright acidity keeps everything in balance.

Wine Tasting Notes
It's classic Green Valley: vivid berries, super fresh, deep and nuanced. While this is not our coldest vineyard (Devil's and Freestone would take that honor), it has the highest natural acidity of our Pinots, which along with the perfectly resolved tannins of the vintage, supports a wine of exceptional freshness and structure. The wine leads with aromas of dense, juicy raspberry, with notes of sassafras and rhubarb. The longer it sits in the glass the more concentrated it becomes, while still holding its essential brightness. In the mouth, its flavors are mouth-coating, starting with sour cherry, raspberry and blueberry, and followed by cherry and sassafras on the long, sweet, persistent finish. The wine is striking for its wonderful combination of richness and freshness. Its concentration and depth lets it stand up to hearty meat dishes, while its intricacy has it just as at home with a piece of tuna or a snack of bread and fresh cheeses.
