Natalie's Score: 91/100

Fleshy ripe cherry aromas with a satin smooth texture and a medium-bodied weight. Terrific acidity to accompany many dishes and good conversation.

Pinot Noir food pairings: planked or grilled salmon, roast chicken or turkey.

This is the wine that defines our work even as the San Andreas Fault defines our site. The 2007 is a wine of truly remarkable character in that it has a compact identity due to its balance, depth of fruit expression, and a potent focus: Like a laser with soul! And this potency is achieved with neither high alcohol nor intense extraction. It shows that true power derives from balance and focus, not might or sleight of hand tricks. Blended from twenty-six fermentation lots comprised of fruit of thirty-six farming blocks, it is the wine of the totality of this site in this great vintage.

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
