Rating: 95/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. From its refined, beautifully oaked nose of very deep and strikingly pure Pinot Noir fruit, to its delicious and its extraordinarily long-lasting flavors, this gorgeous young wine balances richness and refinement in a way that few do. Its ongoing themes of ripe cherries are accented with deft touches of violets, vanilla and toasted brioche with close-to-subliminal suggestions of minerals peeking out here and there. Its careful structure ensures years of improvement even if its keeping will require substantial amounts of self-discipline. In this case, the wait will surely be rewarded.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Rating: 93/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. This deep and very precise Pinot Noir does a remarkable job of balancing high ripeness with bright, very intense fruit, and its rich and wonderfully well-integrated oakiness provides a backdrop of sweetness in complete sympathy with that fruit. There is a bit of heat at the finish and a bit of last-minute astringency warns off early drinking, but this one is a sure bet to grow, and its best lies several years ahead.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.
