Tight on the nose with some oak showing a hint of cocoa and a sweet medicinal edge to emerging black cherry fruit that shows some bitter orange rind notes and gently floral top notes. Also a bit tight in the mouth, showing fine red cherry skin and raspberry, almost strawberry fruit in an attractively lean and well focused style. This has the feel of Pinot Noir, no baby fat, good clarity on the palate, finely grained and almost mineral tannins that transition to some gently herbal bay leaf and vanilla toned accents on the backend before fading a bit quickly on the finish. A bit understated, yet this is my style of Pinot, snappy, focused, and even though there is a vein of oak through this this still manages to be a wine of varietal character. 88pts

Nice red berry fruit on the nose with sour cherry and berry notes. Hints of cedar dust and cinnamon. Suggestions of darker, blue fruit as well. Vibrant and lively on the palate with an undertone of blueberry and darker red fruit with a zing of subtle cinnamon throughout. Some acai and purple plum notes as well. A nice herbal suggestion. Nice. 88 pts. 9/29/13

The 2011 vintage included a very warm and dry winter and spring. These conditions led to being fruitful with small clusters and small berries with flavors of dark berry, cherry, hints of floral and mineral. This is a forward approachable wine that displ
