Winemaker's Notes

The 2003 Upper Terrace is our second vintage from these slopes and it is again the biggest, riches and most muscular of our wines. It is close in quality to the full-bodied, rich 2002. Notes of sweet plums, raspberries, cherries and a hint of sassafras along with some darker fruits and something primordial and earthy emerge from this juicy Pinot. With exceptional concentration, tremendous purity, density, structure and moderate tannin, we believe that this wine will keep for 12-15 years in a cool cellar.

Critical Acclaim

"Amazingly supple, graceful and focused, balancing raspberry, blackberry, plum and spicy, smoky elements into a seamless whole, all wrapped in fine tannins and lingering on the finish beautifully."
94 Points

"Medium ruby. Aromatic, wild nose of game and dark berries. Initially rather ungiving, but then vibrant and juicy in the mouth, with fresh black raspberry and tangy pepper notes. Finishes strong, with good length and solid grip. The vines here are only five years old and yielded just three-quarters of a pound of fruit per vine in '03, according to winemaker Michael Etzel."
