About the winery:
There’s an appealing dark garnet color that immediately implies depth. The nose is upfront – fresh and bright. Flavors and aromas include stewed fruit, cherry cola, allspice, nutmeg, dried orange rind, and enoki mushrooms. The palate evolves to mild savory herbal notes with a faint kiss of toasty oak and mild earthiness. This is an approachable expression of Pinot Noir. Perfect when you’re watching “Sideways” or anything with Paul Giamatti in it. Also good with Portobello mushrooms, olive bread, wild salmon, seared duck breast, or goat cheese. The wine will continue to develop in the next two or three years.

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2016 Vintage):
"A blend of two worlds (62% of the fruit from Sonoma County and 38% from Monterey), this is an approachable red wine, with a juicy entry of savory forest floor, black tea and black cherry. It finishes in a tartness of acidity akin to rhubarb. Virginie Boone" - (2/1/2019)
