The wild berries, Asian spice, fresh herbs and mocha aromas in the nose exude classic Sonoma Coast characteristics. Your mouth will explode with flavors of ripe wild berries, cranberries, graham cracker, white pepper, toffee, and toasted marshmallow. Rich tannins and acidity balance out the flavors of ripe berries, citrus peel and fresh herbs. The long, rich finish completes this wonderful experience.
—Winemaker Bob Cabral
"Bright red. Vibrant aromas of raspberry, licorice, rose and sandalwood. Juicy and intense, with very good sweetness and fleshiness to the red berry and spicecake flavors. The silky tannins arrive late. I like the high-pitched, spicy fruit character of the sappy finish."
International Wine Cellar
"Shows tart cranberry crispness in addition to richer cherry and raspberry fruit, but it’s a fairly aloof wine now, with competing parts. Even though this isn’t a single-vineyard Pinot, it needs time in the cellar, to let everything mellow. Give it 4–5 years."
