(2012 Vintage) An authentic Oregon Pinot Noir through and through. Showcasing volcanic earth, jasmine and rose petals with a cherry core. Big, rich tannins will soften over time, revealing layers of black fruits, minerality and earthiness.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(2006 Vintage) In truth, the Pinot Noirs from Pali are made to such a consistent recipe that differences between one bottling and another are often found in the small details. This firmly built, medium-full-bodied wine strikes a very familiar stance in that, while seemingly extracted, it seems to hold back a trifle in its expression of fruit. It runs up against fairly abrupt finishing tannins and needs to be set for a few years.
