Intense and clean on the nose with wonderful fresh mixed berry notes dusted with some middle eastern spices and topped with fine sage notes. Really deceptive in the mouth. This enters with almost no mass but it’s actually quire rich. The fruit is subdued but deep with layers of dark berry fruit, a hint of plum skin, and integrated oak notes driving toward the finish. This strikes me as just a bit young but it has an inner intensity that makes this already appealing. Great persistence to the black berry, black cherry fruit on the long finish where the tannins threaten to become obvious yet never rise above their fruit driven cover. 93pts

Bright, deep red. Bright aromas of raspberry, cherry, flowers and spices. Sweet, lush and flavorful; a red fruit bomb framed and enlivened by pepper and spice nuances, plus a whiff of flowers. At once dense and fruity. Should be a real crowd-pleaser. Very strong for an entry-level pinot.

This fresh, vibrant red offers ripe blackberry, wild raspberry, sage and black licorice notes. This is full-bodied, spicy and firming, with the flavors gaining depth on the finish, where the tannins are rustic. Drink now through 2018.

A rich and engaging wine in the Patz andamp; Hall style, this balances its full tannins with tart strawberry flavor and fresh conifer scents. Itandrsquo;s toasty, needing time or roast beef to absorb some of the chunky tannin.

Winemaker Notes - With a cool summer and a warm, unhurried harvest period, the 2009 growing season produced a standout Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, combining the structure and purity of the 2007 vintage, with the depth and ripe appeal of 2008. The aromas reveal inviting layers of strawberry, cherry, cranberry and Kirsch that are echoed on the palate alongside notes of spicy fruit. The tannins are broad and muscular, adding mouthcoating richness and vibrant intensity. Lush and compelling now, but with a depth and structure that bodes well for extended aging.
