Tasting Notes from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, “The 2018 Pinot Noir from Anderson Valley, which contains a 1% splash of Petit Verdot, has a medium garnet color and opens with spicy notes of dried flowers, blood orange, cherries and mossy bark. The medium-bodied palate is concentrated and layered with bright freshness and a grainy structure to support, finishing long and flavorful. 440 cases produced.” WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS
Tasting Notes from Winery, “This is one of those. Dark and bright, it ticks the rich fruit complexity boxes with a flourish. It has that ethereal spiciness and baking cherry charm of Anderson Valley, but there’s a meatiness and weight behind it that gives the wine a fuller, deeper feel.”
