Winemaker's Notes

This wine has layered aromas of rose petals, black currant, and mushroom, with subtle hints of lavender. On the palate there are delicate flavors of black fruit and minerals. The texture is silky with a lean texture that finishes long with graceful tannins.

This wine pairs well with meat dishes such as rack of lamb and pan-seared duck breast.

Critical Acclaim

"A beautiful deep ruby/plum color with hints of purple is followed by aromas of flowers, raspberries and blueberries in this medium to full-bodied 2009 Pinot Noir. It possesses fresh acidity, stunning purity, a long, expansive mouthfeel, terrific equilibrium, and the oak is completely concealed by the layers of fruit. It should drink well for another 10-15 years."
95 Points

"Vibrant ruby-red. A heady bouquet evokes red berry and floral qualities, along with suave incense and herb nuances. Deep, focused and pure, with outstanding power to its raspberry, cherry and candied rose flavors. Becomes spicier and smokier with air and closes with superb focus and lingering florality. Impeccably balanced pinot with the depth and structure to reward long-term cellaring.
Rating: 93(+?)"
93 Points

"Offers intense, vibrant, well-focused and elegant flavors, with loamy earth, crushed rock, dried berry and subtle floral scents, as flavors build on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2020. 376 cases made."
