Notes from the Winemaker:

The 2017 Sleepy Hollow Pinot Noir is a distinctive expression of the world-class wine consistently produced in our Sleepy Hollow Vineyard. Our flagship Pinot Noir offers aromas of cola, clove and opulent plum and blackberry. Luscious notes of black cherry, raspberry and vanilla deliver a rich, mouth-filling texture. Underlying minerality, vibrant acidity and well-heeled tannins add to the complex finish of this elegant, luxurious Pinot Noir.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - James Suckling:
"Sweet-and-sour character to this with dried strawberry, toasted-oak and lime undertones. Full to medium body, fine tannins and a creamy finish. Contrastive. Drink or hold. Screw cap." 1/20

93 Points - Wine Advocate

"The pale to medium ruby colored 2017 Pinot Noir Sleepy Hollow Vineyard was aged ten months in 40% new French oak. It has inviting, open-knit aromas of cranberry sauce, wild blackberries, blood orange, clove and turned earth plus notes of amaro and tobacco. The silky, light to medium-bodied palate offers lovely, earth-tinged fruits with a grainy, fresh frame and long, layered finish"  2/20

92 Points - Vinous:
Bright red. Spice-accented scents of ripe red fruits, smoked meat and cola are lifted by a subtle floral overtone. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering appealingly sweet raspberry, rose pastille and spicecake flavors that deepen steadily on the back half. In an energetic style, with smooth tannins framing a very long, floral-tinged finish. (Drink between 2022-2028) JR 11/19
