Stemmy and almost a bit minty on the nose with sage and balsam layered over vanilla framed raspberry fruit. Fres, precise and zesty on entry, this shows off super polished and supple tannins and sport plenty of well integrated acidity in a rather sleek and elegant package. The texture is just gorgeous, a hint of fleshiness, cherry and raspberry toned, wrapped around the taut, linear structure. Though the flavors are low key and restrained this does gain some nice soil tones on the back end that lead to a clean, refreshing that is brief if finish studded with fresh raspberry flavors. 86pts

The nose has aspberry, stawberry, and a light hint of wonderful stink. On the palate, this is bright and amazingly fruity, with very soft tannins and a great acidic bite on the back end.

The 2009 Pinot Noir Whole Cluster Fermented is light ruby red with a fruity, Beaujolais-like nose that jumps from the glass. On the palate it sports loads of juicy, spicy red fruit with enough acidity for balance. Drink this easygoing, uncomplicated, but pleasure-bent effort over the next 2-3 years. It is a very good value.

Bright, with a silky feel to the red berry and raspberry flavors, which linger against a touch of lime on the lively finish. Drink now through 2012.

As refreshing as liquid fruit salad in a glass, this wine opens with explosive aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry, black cherry, and a hint of smoke and anise. Flavors mirror the aromas and are complemented by balanced, soft tannins and ripe acidity. Juicy flavors lead to a juicy pomegranite finish. This wine holds an elegant, refined weight on the palate throughout, inviting another sip. Meant to drink young. Enjoy this wine now through 2014. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

Light red. Wild strawberry and raspberry aromas are pleasantly straightforward, picking up gentle spiciness with air. Light-bodied red berry flavors are firmed by a bitter cherry skin quality and complemented by subtle smoke and anise qualities. With its finishing sweetness and surprising persistence, this is very easy to drink.

Light, polished and fragrant, showing more spice than fruit, with a mocha-nutmeg overlay to the modest berry and orange peel flavors. Drink now.

The fruit jumps out and says, "drink me now." This is a no-frills, unpretentious party-style of Pinot, but unlike most of the cheap California stuff it has some weight behind its fruit. Pleasing black cherry and blackberry flavors are right up front, with sturdy tannins providing a solid foundation.

A jazzy red, displaying pretty cherry and raspberry fruit on a deftly balanced frame, lingering nicely. Drink now through 2014.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes A beautiful wine that truly expresses the terroir of the red, volcanic earth where it was grown. Aromas of red fruits, violets, clove, and tea leaf. Flavors mirror aromas with juicy bing cherry, lavender, earth and mineral followed by an elegant finish that lingers with spicy cinnamon and clove notes. The mouthfeel is round and generous with a concentrated mid-palate and good acidity. Appealing now, but will further reward those who cellar this wine. Peak drinkability is between 2011-2014.
