Color is just fine (3 of 3). Very nice boquet, but just short of promising greatness (3 of 4). Just right tannons, and refreshing acidity, this pinot has a full body with extended (though not complex) finish. Well balanced, and ready to drink this year (6 of 8). Overall, a very nice cool climate pinot! I'd buy this again to keep as core stock Pinot. (4 of 5). Total: 16 of 20

This wine looks fine (3 of 3), but there is nothing special about the bouquet. The smell doesn't promise much (2 of 4). The tasting experience shows pleasant tannins, and refreshing acidity, still this wine falls short of being full-bodied. The length of finish is okay but is not terribly complex. The wine is well balanced and ready to drink this year. (maybe best last year…) (3 of 8). Overall, A pleasant wine I'd value at $12-$14 a bottle, but would probably not buy again. (2 of 5) TOTAL: 10 of 20

Learn About Navarro

Our family has been growing grapes, in the Anderson Valley in coastal Mendocino since 1973.

Consolidation and globalization are sweeping the wine business but mega-farming is not particularly conducive to crafting distinctive wines. Navarro is tiny and we don't base decisions on expediency or efficiency. We hand hoe on hillsides, punch-down fermenting juice in small bins and painstakingly train each stray grape shoot into its proper place on the trellis.
