91 Points - Wine Spectator

"Sleek and elegant, well-centered on lively raspberry, cranberry and boysenberry flavors. Impressively vital and persistent, ending long and fruity. Drink now through 2023. 101 cases made."

92 Points - Pinot File, The Prince of Pinot File

"Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Uplifting aromas of wild berries, fruit cake, oak vanillin and brioche. Mid weight styled, with soothing flavors of dark red cherry and berry and back notes of exotic tea and nutty oak. Ideal balance, with a finish awash in berry fruits."

Winemaker Notes
Red plum and sweet red currant scents start the engine that drives this exceedingly dark Pinot Noir which is quickly followed by scents of smoke, dried orange peel, sumac, dark earth and tobacco. A pleasurable smack of palate-coating and juicy dark fruits of black cherry, black raspberry and plum precedes the short-chained smooth and round tannins that finish this black beauty.
Vintage Notes
Could the 2014 harvest be on par with the 2007? The undisputed facts are that the vintage came from a wonderful growing season with nearly perfect timing for all phases; bud break, set, version and harvest were what one would come to expect of a great or nearly great vintage. The yield was such that no one will want for more but not so large that the wines are without weight and color. The true sign of a terrific vintage is that little or nothing needs to be added at the must/juice stage and this vintage being no exception. All lots came in with proper sugars, great flavors and excellent acids so that little or no additions were needed at the fermenter. Could be one for the ages, time will tell.
