The aromas fairly jump out of the glass with this wine, exhibiting great earthy and forest floor elements that are in balance with the rich fruit. On the palate the acidity keeps this wine impressively vivid with bitter cherry fruit that is set off by the lovely earthy elements and stemmy spice tones. This has a subtle gamy, wild edge to it and finishes with refreshing acidity and soft tannins. Wonderfully-expressed Pinot fruit in a gentle, elegant package. 91pts

On the nose, notes of bing cherry and strawberry. Some mineral tones and light spice. On the palate, a surprising blend of currant and blackberry on refined tannins. It has nice structure, sweet ripe fruit finish with good, pure fruit throughout. Nice! 2/11/12

Medium bodied and fruit-forward, this New World Pinot Noir is a delight to drink. Find raspberries and blackberries on the palate with notes of savoury dried herb and white pepper. The tannins are smooth and silky on the finish.
