(From 2010 Vintage) Lovely crimson colour and very fruit forward nose. Cherries and red currants with a blast of musty leather. The palette is still very closed with only a hint of the fruit and some violets coming through, not quite in harmony.

Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesShowing the tight structure that only the coolest growing areas seem to produce in Pinot Noir, this keenly defined bottling is all dark cherries, oak, dark chocolate and toast in the nose while its palatal impacts are initially supple and inviting. Tannin grabs the stage by mid-palate however, and this very well-made, wholly convincing effort wants two to five years of cellaring before it is going to show itself at its best.
