Deep garnet in the glass with aromas of dried cranberries, bramble berry, and baking spices like Cinnamon and nutmeg. On the palate, tart acid with flavors of cherry and Santa Rosa plum. Juicy and spicy with earthy notes of black tea and red clay. A light to medium weight on the palate with a medium finish dusted with well-developed tannins.
92 James Suckling
Fresh raspberries, lemon rind, orange zest, rhubarb, red cherries and fresh herbs. Medium-bodied with bright acidity, firm tannins and a fresh, medium-chewy finish. Real Sonoma pinot.
91 Wine Spectator
Crisp and well-structured, with a sinewy texture to the ripe cherry and dried berry flavors. The inky finish offers hints of pepper and mocha.
91 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Pinot Noir has a pale to medium ruby-purple color and inviting scents of pomegranate liqueur, crushed cranberries and Bing cherries with nuances of orange peel, potpourri and autumn leaves. Light to medium-bodied, it offers loads of bright, spicy fruits, with a gently grainy frame and seamless freshness, finishing long and bright. 12,632 cases produced.
