Our first vintage produced from this small, family operated, 1.25 acre site, exhibits lush concentration of fruit and compelling spice. Aromas of ripe strawberry and raspberry mingle with baking spices of star anise, cinnamon and cardamom. Rich, suave textures are highlighted by energetic fruit flavors balanced by electric acidity, concluding with a salivating finish. Drink now or over the next 10 years.

"Medium ruby colored. Aromas of jammy raspberries, tart summer plums and red currants, along with some earth and rosemary elements. Medium+ bodied, a velvety appeal with moderate acid, the balance is quite a thing. Tart plums mix with wild raspberries and richer strawberry jam flavors, and I get secondary notes of pine sap, green coffee, black tea. Velvety, smooth but stylish, rounded out with some earthy and saucy aspects that will surely evolve with time. 13.8% alcohol, aged 11 months in 25% new French oak." - Issac James Baker, Terroirist.com

"The finish is remarkably long, lasting well over 30 seconds." - princeofpinot.com

"It has an expressive nose of wild strawberries, red berries, dark soil tones, black tea, exotic spices, with hints of forest floor and rose pedal. On the palate the wine is focused, medium to full-bodied, with a pure and refined core of fresh fruit. It remains focused and balanced leading into the long finish. Drinking well now with some air contact, and will improve over the next decade." - International Wine Report

"The 1.25-acre Holder Vineyard would have been hard to find if it weren't for the Chenoweth connection. Savory notes of marjoram and sandalwood hardly hint at the exuberant, sweet palate of cherry-raspberry-cranberry sauce that makes the 2013 Holder Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir such a pleasure." - James Knight, North Bay Bohemian
