Reviews & Scores

The grapes for this wine were sourced from 4 different blocks with 3 different soil types. The production was 413 cases. With a deep color the wine has a great perfume with spice tinges and floral berry nuances. It is structured and flavorful with lots of fruit showing floral nuances and a distinct minerality. The is a lovely beautifully balanced Pinot Noir with lots of character and charm. It will age beautifully for many years into the future – Extraordinary.
