Notes from the Winemaker:
Deep purple garnet color, this wine has overflowing aromas of dried hibiscus flower and smoked paprika with hints of forest floor and mint. The palate is dense and rich, packed with flavors of sassafrass, wild blueberry compote, and baking spice. This wine is a full and intense expression of Pinot Noir, perfectly balanced with toasted oak and vibrant acidity on the lengthy finish.

Ratings & Reviews:

93 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Ripe and seemingly languid, but has an underlying succulence to the mix of dark cherry, raspberry and plum fruit, while sleek anise, black tea and warm earth accents course through the finish. Reveals a late flicker of pine forest, too. Drink now through 2029. 6,654 cases made." - JM (Sep 2023)

Wine Enthusiast:
"This expression of extremely ripe Pinot Noir are for lovers of the fuller-bodied expression of the grape. The palate is rich with soft, plushy tannins and slightly elevated (14.4%) alcohol. Notes of bursting blackberry, boysenberry jam and prunes, alongside earthier tones of fresh fennel, forest floor and chocolate." – SB (Sep 2023)
