Very aromatic - a little on the jammy side. We had it at a Pig 'n Pinot tailgate. Worked great with the hickory smoked pork shoulder. Read more

Very nice pinot... a bit jammy, as others have said for other vintages, but I got fair amount of cherry on the nose/palate of the 2009. Agree with a bergamot undertone, which is nice. This belies the darker color in this wine. It lacks big earthiness/barnyard nose. Well balanced, but also lacking the asian spice/orange peel I love in a pinot. Still a winner for me because of the big cherry/slight spice undertone- jammy rounds it out. And well balanced.

The color is dark ruby red without being inky or overly dense. A jammy red berry tone announces the aroma and is then backed up by many layers of complex undertones: cinnamon, tea leaf, bergamot, and fennel, with elements of vanilla and cola as well.

Wine Enthusiast ReviewJust delicious. It's so soft and silky, so easy to sip, and so seductive in lush cherry, cola, vanilla and spice flavors. Drink now for its youthful exuberance.Wine Tasting NotesThe color is dark ruby red without being inky or overly dense. A jammy red berry tone announces the aroma and is then backed up by many layers of complex undertones: cinnamon, tea leaf, bergamot, and fennel, with elements of vanilla and cola as well. The flavors are in harmony with the aroma this wine is not a flirt. It delivers what it promises with soft fruit opening the palate and ripe, dynamic tannins carrying through to a sweet finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

We select grapes for our Estate Pinot from two of our five vineyard sites. Most of it comes from the vines which immediately surround the winery. The balance comes from hillside blocks a few miles south of the winery on Orcutt Rd. Our most reliable clone for quality is Dijon 667. We also use a good amount of Pommard. Year in and year out 8-10 blocks out of our 20 produce the best wines. These are the ones we lavish extra attention on during both the growing season and the harvest. We farm sustainably in order to maintain health in the environment and for ourselves and neighbors.
