Wine Enthusiast Review
Rated 93
Aged in four-year-old barrels for 16 months, this bottling allows its elegant fruit to shine, showing concentrated black cherry, cola, rose petal and ginger aromas. A tight boysenberry note emerges on the palate, dusted with clove and lavender and cut by lively acidity. A thorough and complete wine.

Wine Advocate Review
Rated 91
Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Older Barrel has fragrant roses and violets notes over black cherries, mulberries and red plums, plus wafts of dried leaves and pepper. Medium-bodied with a solid backbone of firm, chewy tannins and lively acid, it has plenty of earthy layers and a black pepper note on the finish.

Wine Tasting Notes
Our single vineyard and small lot bottlings enable us to deliver some of our finest expressions of Pinot Noir by concentrating on specific vineyards, clonal selections or techniques. The "Older Barrels" Pinot Noir is aged for 16 months exclusively in four-year old, or "neutral," French barrels. The absence of new oak allows for a more delicate, sophisticated wine showcasing purity of fruit flavors. This wine shows attractive dark cherry, raspberry, and floral notes on the nose. Cherry and cranberry fruits are backed up with firm acidity, minerality, and spice flavors on the palate. Enjoy!
