Winemaker's Notes

#14 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

The Estate Cuvee sets a classic tone with its passionate garnet hue. The bouquet is an experience of floral expression as well as red cherries and fresh raspberries accompanied by an immense layer of spices ranging from nutmeg to white-pepper on the finish. While approachable now, the acidity within this wine will reward one's cellar for years to come.

Critical Acclaim

"Sumptuous and distinctive for its range of cherry, boysenberry, floral and dark chocolate flavors, dancing suavely through the long, expressive finish. The tannins are submerged, and this has miles to go."
94 Points

"The 2009 Pinot Noir Estate Cuvee was aged for 12 months in 30% new French oak. It, too, offers up herbal overtones which seem to be a characteristic of this vineyard. Here it is merely a background note accompanied by Asian spices, incense, and assorted black fruits. In the glass it displays unusual richness and concentration for the vintage as well as a fruit-filled, lengthy finish."
