14.3%. This one is a bit on the jammy side for me. Has the acid structure to support it, but finishes on a sweet raspberry note that becomes tiring after a glass.

A blend of a couple vineyards of Pinot Noir. Initially offered first. Nice nose, with plum and blackberry fruit. Well balanced. Good complexity. A solid 92 in my notes. CB 92+

Ruby color with muted earth, plum, cranberry and spice aromas. A tad hot. On the palate, it's medium-bodied with a supple texture and plum, cranberry, and spice flavors. Medium finish. 2011 Vintage

Digging this one! It has an earthy, red currant, cola, and spice character.

SLH area is excellent for PN with a lot of spice, cola, red fruits and this is a very nice drinker from the area.
