Winemaker's Notes

This Pinot Noir comes from grapes grown on old volcanic soil. Its firmness and spiciness shows a tapestry of red and black cherry, raspberry, anise and mineral notes. There are touches of sage, mocha – with a hint of smoky sandalwood – and its finish is long and lingering. It's perfect to drink now for the sheer luxury and decadence, and its impressive range of flavors makes it taste so good. With finely ground tannins and perfect coastal acidity, it's addictively likeable. Drink now through 2015.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium-deep ruby color; rich, earthy, dark cherry and plum aromas; rich, and deep black cherry and plum flavors with spice, earth and forest floor notes; very silky texture; great structure and balance; long finish. Deep, complex and silky Pinot with delicious flavors. This is really a delight to drink by itself, but pair it with some short ribs."
96 Points

"Expensive, but a perfect Pinot Noir to drink now for sheer luxury and decadence. Tastes so good, offering a tapestry of raspberry, cherry, licorice, mocha and sweet, smoky sandalwood. With finely ground tannins and near-perfect coastal acidity, it's addictively likeable. Now–2012."
93 Points

"Firm and spicy, showing red and black cherry, raspberry, anise and mineral notes, with touches of sage. Impressive for its range of flavors, focus and delicacy, ending with a long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2015."

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
