Best of 2018, 94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Our house theme of producing Pinot Noir that is not typically "California" in style, has prevailed once again and is on full display with this bottling. Aromas of petrol, tar, tobacco, dried rose petals, red fruits, star anise and ginger rise from the glass. Fresh, bright flavors of wild strawberry, cranberry, pomegranate and blood orange are interlaced with juniper berry, black tea, smoked meats and soft chewy tannins. Although this complex wine is approachable now, it will only improve over the next 10-15 years. Decanting is highly recommended.
"The appellation 2014 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast reveals some stem influence as well as darker cherry fruits, earth, medium body, and nicely integrated acidity. This peppery, earthy effort has plenty of fruit, good balance, and a clean finish." - Jeb Dunnuck
