Flavorful, intense wines - that is our goal. We believe every wine should be bursting with flavor. This intensity should be part of a greater balance. We find that each of our vineyards has its own "sweet spot" of balance. It is our charge to guide each vineyard to its optimum flavor potential.

Flavorful, intense wines - that is our goal. We believe every wine should be bursting with flavor. This intensity should be part of a greater balance. We find that each of our vineyards has its own "sweet spot" of balance. It is our charge to guide each vineyard to its optimum flavor potential. Our single vineyard wines are blended to express the specific qualities and consistencies of our pedigreed vineyards. Pinot Noir is the perfect palate to define the terroir of these plantings. We offer two appellation wines: our Sonoma Coast and Russian River. These wines are blended to represent the best of our vineyards in each specific appellation. Quality is of utmost importance with these blends. Read less

We had this at Epic steakhouse. It was the best wine I have ever had.

The complete oppisite to the Kanzler poured directly befor it. The color deep garnet with purple tinges. Wonderful red fruit profile that reminds me more of a Burgundy that a Cali. Spring flowers and sweet red fruits on the nose. The tongue revealed crushed pebbles, red cherries, and some cinnamon. There is a clean and pure medium weight feel that exudes elegance grace and class. Nice minerality and structure with a acid level that sits smoothly and crisply in the background. Long graceful aftertaste. Wow

Many Pinots disappoint me. Why can't those disappointments drink this wine and toss out what they've done?

This wine disappointed me, in fact it was gross. Too much alcohol, too much oak and too much thick syrupy body. The only thing we could have paired with this glob of viscous mass would have been some sort gamey meat like boar with a reduction sauce, otherwise, NOT my style of pinot noir

Dark purple. Explosively perfumed aromas of ripe red and dark berries, baking spices, incense and smoky minerality. Round, sappy and sweet, with deep raspberry and cherry jam flavors, supple texture and gentle mineral lift. Picks up blackberry and ca... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

Pure, rich and focused on ripe plum, currant, wild berry and blueberry fruit that's well-distributed, picking up a nice dash of cola and sassafras that's strong and persistent.

Dense yet sleek, elegant and refined, with a remarkable core of ripe, zesty cherry, strawberry and raspberry fruit that's pure and delicious, delivered on a beam. Has great acidity, fine tannins, wonderful balance and a long, plush finish. Drink now ... Wine Spectator.

Ruby-red. Brooding aromas of kirsch, blackcurrant and cured tobacco are brightened by suggestions of iron and dried violet. Focused dark berry and cherry flavors show impressive concentration and a chewy texture and are nicely firmed by youthful tann... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

Tightly wound and intense, with firm, spicy, well-focused blackberry and wild berry fruit that has both lively acidity and well-grounded tannins. Needs time.
