"Refined and expressive, with harmonious cherry, black tea and spiced cinnamon flavors that take on richness toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2024. 3,081 cases made. –TF " (WS)

"Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Laurene is intensely scented of cranberries, wild strawberries and raspberry leaves with nuances of underbrush, wild thyme and yeast extract. Medium-bodied, fine, fresh and tightly wound at this youthful stage, it delivers plenty of depth and expression and the long finish is beautifully framed with a commendable texture." (WA)

"Brilliant red. Potent, mineral-accented red and dark berry aromas are complemented by suggestions of cola, five-spice powder and candied flowers. Silky and alluringly sweet, offering concentrated black raspberry, cherry and rose pastille flavors accompanied by an energizing mineral quality. Shows superb balance and spicy lift on the vibrant finish, which is framed by smooth, harmonious tannins." (VM)
