The deepest blues and reds with a hint of earth. Chewier than most Pinots, layers and layers of elegant surprise.

2012 is full of red fruit and a hint of earth. Ripe with a long finish.

Good fruit forward Pinot with smooth finish. Usually earthy nose but over time, nose is very light.

Purchased during a Napa trip in 2010, and stashed in my cellar. I was worried I missed its peak, but if I did it wasn't by much. Lucious blackberry fruit, and even some pepper-y notes on the tongue. Beautiful color, too. At 10 years it is showing remarkably well.
