Notes from the Winemaker:
Cherry jam, Meyer lemon and earl grey tea: The 2015 Conifer exemplifies summer, with its intense upfront flavor of red fruit and aromas of rosemary, lavender, and star anise. Amid vibrant fruit intensity, its plush shape is suggested rather than rigidly defined—a Pinot Noir for a never-ending warm summer afternoon. The cumulative effect is a balanced wine of juicy fruit, citrus zest, warm spice, and forest air.

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:

"A dynamic combination of rich polish and great structure, with expressive black cherry, licorice and spiced orange flavors that finish with refined, mineral-tinged tannins. Drink now through 2024. 395 cases made." – TF (Nov 30, 2018)

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2015 Pinot Noir Conifer is a little youthfully shy on the nose, giving way with coaxing to cinnamon stick, clove, ripe black cherries and black berries with notions of dried leaves and underbrush plus touches of charcuterie—this is very savory! Medium-bodied, it's got wonderful layers of ripe black fruits, earth and spice, framed by fine, grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing long and savory with just a touch of heat. 438 cases produced." - Erin Brooks (Nov 2018)
