(2010 Vintage) The 2010 vintage of our flagship wine begins with inviting aromas of raspberry puree and fresh oatmeal cookies. The entry offers an intriguing hint of smoke and peppercorns that carry though to a mid-palate filled with silky tannins and cherry and raspberry flavors. On the finish, oak-inspired overtones of coffee and baking spice mingle with leather and fruit bringing this wine to a long, satisfying conclusion.

Wine & Spirits(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.
Wine Spectator(2002 Vintage) "This rich, hearty Pinot exhibits a broad, complex range of ripe black cherry, raspberry and wild berry fruit flavors that are well-defined and long and persistenton the palate, ending with a burst of flavor and ripe, supple tannins."
