From Wine Enthusiast: "Lifted violet and berry notes are intoxicating on this spicy, deftly balanced wine. Rich, ripe black-cherry and raspberry flavors blend into liquid silk on the palate, but are framed squarely by the fine-grained tannins and a spray of cranberry acidity. The finish goes on and on. Likely to drink beautifully from now through at least 2020."
From the review: "Moss and wood notes mingle with violet and lavender perfume on this elegant, subtly nuanced Pinot Noir. Ripe, rich black-cherry and berry flavors are offset by a brisk acidity and a penetrating mineral backbone. It's lovely now, but structured enough, and still boldly tannic, to merit further cellar aging. Drink from 2020-2025"
From the review: "Intensely ripe black cherry and plum flavors are tinged with earthy tones of granite and fallen leaves in this lush, concentrated Pinot Noir. While forward and almost ruddy with fruit, brisk acidity and fine tannins along with subtle spice and cedar notes lend balance. It's a four-square, balanced wine that finishes long."
From the review: "This wine highlights heady new-oak tones of spice, vanilla and cedar, yet maintains elegance from nose to finish. Ripe black cherry and plum flavors penetrate on the palate, with a framing of soft tannins and bright cranberry acidity. The finish is long and a touch mineral."
