Winemaker Tasting Notes: On the nose, the 2019 Pinot Noir exhibits aromas of dark cherry, raspberry, strawberry and spice. On the palate, the wine delivers generous black cherry, black raspberry and cranberry with notes of earth and black tea. Elegant, balanced, lush and focused. Mouthful is ample and plush gaining depth with a lingering velvety finish.
"The 2019 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley has more floral aromas, with sweet cedar, ripe raspberry, and baking spice. The palate has beautiful concentration and fresh fruit that surges through to a long finish with a tangerine note. Hold 1-2 years and drink over the following 8-10 years."- Jeb Dunnuck.
"The pale ruby-purple colored 2019 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley offers pretty scents of raspberry jam and violets, with touches of iron, dried herbs and Earl Grey tea leaves. The palate is light-bodied, silky, fresh and ultra-perfumed, finishing long and uplifted. It's a more delicate, red-fruited style than is typical of Russian River Valley."- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
"Ground spice and bright red berries mix on the nose. Medium-to full-bodied with integrated tannins. Smooth and seamless on the palate with pleasant presence and intensity."- James Suckling.
