Winemaker's Notes

#75 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

The 2009 is super rich without being too heavy. Great texture and mouth feel. Dare I say the "iron fist in the velvet glove" ideal that I think all Pinot Producers secretly hope for. Super seductive and "brainy" at the same time. This wine will be great right out of the gate, but will have the potential to age well for at least 6-8 years, and maybe more!

Critical Acclaim

"Weaving together a complex array of earthy berry, spice and floral scents, this is full-bodied and deceptively firm and muscular. The core of ripe plum and blackberry flavors builds, sustaining depth and momentum. Drink now through 2018. 600 cases made. "
