(2013 Vintage) Above the deep and gorgeous robe of color, our 2013 Estate Pinot Noir exhibits aromas of cherry and cola with hints of fruit, leather and undertones of plum. The wine is silky in texture. Focused black cherry flavors dance on the palate, and an elegant dash of vanilla sweetens the wine for a long, inviting finish. When young, this wine is best appreciated when decanted prior to serving.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesMuted suggestions of cherryish fruit are met by elements of brush and briar from the very start here. A full, yet fairly soft and slightly heavy wine in the mouth, it wants for a bit more bounce and brightness and wanders away to dryness at the finish.
