Wine Description

(2006 Vintage) This elegantly balanced, medium-weight Pinot Noir displays ideal acidity, a velvety texture and tannins that segue to a long, clean finish. Aromas of clove, dried thyme, lavender and cocoa are underscored by enticing layers of vanilla, caramelized sugar, toasty oak and a hint of rosemary. A rich and nuanced expression of Anderson Valley winemaking, the 2006 vintage combines immediate appeal with flavorful depth and density.

    (2007 Vintage) This wine makes a strong first impression: a bold hit of dark berries, a cool, spicy length of flavor that’s more than just fruit. There’s an earth tone to the tannin that adds a subtle black olive-skin or black mushroom savor. And then oak makes its presence clear. Supple and juicy, this should evolve well over the next several years.
