External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Dark red. Very ripe, rather powerful aromas of cherry, cassis, tobacco and roasted coffee.

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

Fresh strawberry, black cherry and cranberry aromas gain velocity and depth on the palate, making the somewhat lighter color misleading. This is an intense, distinctive style that's tightly wound, ending with firm tannins, acidity and vibrant fruit. ... Wine Spectator.

The well-made 2005 Pinot Noir Rosella s Vineyard (15.3% alcohol) is somewhat puzzling as it possesses very ripe fruit, but not the concentration of most of its peers. It offers some weedy spice and earth characteristics as well as tart acidity
