"...aromas of dark cherry, spice, fertile earth and mesquite. Mid weight plus flavors of black cherry, blueberry-pomegranate and cherry cola are embellished with toasty oak in the background. Wellrounded, integrated tannins and texturally appealing with a soft and sleek mouthfeel..."
– RG, PinotFile

"There's plenty of 'luxury-level' California Pinot Noir out there, but a lot of it is a little too made-up for my taste. This one’s got more modest—and I think more proper—proportions and a price to match."
– Ian Cauble, Master Sommelier

Tasting Notes

Generously packed with exotic cassis, black cherry, cola and plum flavors knitted together in a creamy, velvety texture.  Offers a persistent, well-defined structure and is wonderfully balanced.  More structured and fragrant than our previous vintage.  Definitely ready to go and worthy of splashing around.  The price for quality is exceptional.  One of the finest we have bottled!  Prime drinking from 2024 to 2032.

Winemaking

Harvested from a small block of Pinot Noir in the Russian River Valley region of the Sonoma Coast.  Yields are maintained at lower levels for increased quality, ranging from 3 to 5 tons/acre.  A small percentage of whole cluster in fermentations with punch downs and pump overs to enhance color, character, and fine tannins.  Aged in 65% new French oak for 18 months.  The result is a generous mouthful of rich, complex Pinot Noir, with nice layering, finishing with delightful notes of spice.

Vintage

Every vintage is certainly distinct, and 2022 was no exception.  Bud break arrived early with a mostly dry spring.  Warm temperate days and cool nights set the stage for ideal ripening during the growing season.  In perfect condition from the spring rains and a mild summer, the vines withstood the end of summer temperatures.  Harvest came in the early morning during the coolest part of the day to preserve the delicate flavors and balance.  Attention to detail allowed the vines to develop to their full potential making for an exceptional vintage.
