Notes from the Winemaker:
Amassed from multiple vineyard blocks and clones, this wine has a timeless beauty that can be inherently understood by innate human nature. Wines of this stature, much like great art, reflect the complex and compelling relationship between humanity and Earth. Expressing Autumn, (The Sum) leads with blackberries and white pepper on the front end of the palate followed by persimmon and western red cedar, melting into heirloom tomato and sunbaked soil on the finish. 50% whole-cluster fermentation bolsters the wine, sustaining the tannic imprint and lingering as a sort of familiar; can’t-quite-place-it ambient noise.

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Shows precision and expression, with refined black cherry and blueberry flavors accented by crushed stone and dark spice notes, building complexity toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2024. 412 cases made." – TF (Nov 30, 2018)

92+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"Pale to medium ruby purple, the 2015 Pinot Noir The Sum opens with gregarious aromas of dried blueberries, red and black cherries and berries—there are lots of fruit layers here—with accents of smoked meats, cinnamon stick and clove. Light to medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with red, blue and black fruit and savory notions, framed by firm, finely pixelated tannins and very juicy acidity carrying the long spicy finish. 454 cases produced." - Erin Brooks (Nov 2018)
