Winemaker's Notes

Floral and spice focused. The highest natural tannins of all our sedimentary sites with briary, tobacco, and fresh-turned Earth qualities.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2005 Pinot Noir McCrone Vineyard falls on the dark fruit side of the spectrum both aromatically and on the palate. It has a plush presence in the mouth, superb balance, and a long, firm finish. Give it 6-8 years and drink it through 2030."
92 Points

"Violets, sweet candy and Dr. Pepper scents rise from the glass, followed by full, confident fruit flavors, like a bowl of ripe cherries. The vineyard owners spend half the year in New Zealand, where they manage a similar vineyard; this could well pass for a kiwi-style Pinot with its lush, forward, fruit punch style."
92 Points

"Deep red with a bright rim. Vibrant black raspberry and strawberry jam aromas complemented by exotic cola and candied licorice. Sweet, supple dark berry flavors are gently lifted by a mineral element and become more tangy with air. The brisk red fruit flavors carry through a long, sappy finish. This is really delicious."
