"Raw, intense and rustic, but concentrated, delivering edgy cherry and plum notes. Full-bodied, touching on minerally notes and fit tannins. Drink now through 2016. 833 cases made. " (WS)

"The outstanding 2008 Pinot Noir Santa Maria is the buy among this quartet. A classic example of Central Coast Pinot Noir, with notes of forest floor, roasted herbs, sweet raspberries, and black cherries, this is a fleshy, pure, exuberant Pinot Noir with good acidity buttressing the wine’s beautiful flavors. Drink it over the next 2-4 years. " (WA)

"This is a beautiful Pinot Noir for drinking over the next few years. It’s bone dry, and shows the classic structure you want from a Pinot Noir, with brisk acidity and gentle tannins framing spicy flavors of black cherries, pomegranates and cola." (WE)

"A ripe and relatively deeply pitched nose offers notes of violets, blue berry, smoke and hints of cassis that introduce rich, delicious and round medium-bodied flavors that enjoy good mid-palate density and fine balance on the understated, pure and harmonious finish. This is lovely juice that could be drunk now or held for a few years first. Definitely worth a look." (BH)
