Deep red. Displays sexy, highly perfumed aromas of red fruit liqueur, Asian spices, incense and smoky minerals, along with an exotic potpourri nuance. Densely packed with flavor, yet lithe as well, displaying alluringly sweet raspberry preserve, cherry, blood orange and floral pastille qualities that show superb delineation and mineral lift. Fine-grained tannins lend gentle grip to an extremely long, focused finish that shows noteworthy clarity and insistent spice and floral pastille qualities. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, June 2019)

Soft and terroir driven brown and elegant. Well balanced sour cherries truffles and barnyard. Perfect acidity and balance

An earthy, fleshy PN that is subdued in a good way. Excellent balance and restraint. Still evolving so it will put on weight and depth. Maggie is doing fantastic and unique things in Dundee.

WNH event number 3...new world Pinot. Such a treat to experience the many different variations of Pinot!

The most Burgundian styled Pinot of the night. I thought it was fantastic, and still has another few years to get even better. No candied notes, more underripe red fruit (cherry and rhubarb), potpourri, graphite on the nose. Acidity is great. Not quite lean, but not a fruit bomb Pinot. Sage and herbal. Awesome,

Great, deep pinot. Thought it would be light but was heavy. Almost merlot deep w dark red fruits n almost blue fruits n actually a little leather. Very tasty yet nit the typical pinot for me.
