"Complex, loamy earth and berry scents are full-bodied, offering hints of ripe plum and black cherry, with touches of spice and cedar. Smoky oak marks the aftertaste. Drink now through 2015. 5,000 cases made." (WS)

"Winemaker James MacPhail brings his touch to this ripe, delicious Pinot Noir. It explodes in raspberries and cherries, but it’s no more fruit bomb. Shows fine acidity and even a dusting of tannins that provide structural integrity. Really nice now, and should develop over the next 4–6 years." (WE)

"Medium ruby color; deep cinnamon, spiced plum and cherry aromas; deep, complex, focused plum and cherry flavors with cardamom and sandalwood notes; some fine tannins; sweet oak; good structure and balance; long finish. Deep and complex with terrific, many layered flavors. Needs time to open up but worth the wait!" (PR)
