Winemaker's Notes

#60 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013

The 2010 Astrolabe Pinot Noir has bright deep garnet color. On the nose, savory ripe plum and dark cherry, with a hint of smoky oak. On the palate, full bodied wine with round, mouth filling flavors of plum, brambly fruit and dark cherry. The oak integrates nicely with the fruit, and combines well with the silky tannin structure.

Critical Acclaim

"Features intoxicating aromatics of orange zest, dried lavender and fresh, peppery earth notes, with a succulent, juicy core of raspberry and strawberry. Supple in texture, with the flavors lingering on the fresh, juicy finish."
