Love this silky Pinot Noir! It seems to get better every year. Beautiful cherries and field raspberry notes roll in first, then there’s fresh earth aromas after a spring rain followed by some baking spices and a long finish. This Pinot has been one of my favourites for years. Satin seduction in a glass. Some comforting mocha on the finish.

Pinot Noir food pairings: turkey, pork tenderloin, coq au vin, grilled salmon.

Louise Wilson ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

With flavours reminiscent of black cherry jubilee and wild strawberry, this plush Pinot is supported by easy going tannins and fresh acidity. A touch of oak spice haunts the finish. Enjoy now through 2016. Fantastic with cedar plank salmon. Tasted March 2014.
Martha Kelly AIWS, CS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Pale ruby in colour, this medium-bodied, refreshing wine has layers of raspberry, dark cherry, cola, cinnamon, vanilla, beet root, violets, and a black earth minerality. The flavours linger on the long, elegant finish.
Drink now, or cellar until 2017.
Pair with charcuterie, grilled beef, or salmon, or enjoy on its own.
Date tasted: April 2014.
Heather Wall CS; WSET Certified rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Vintage after vintage always one of my go-to wines. Pale ruby California Pinot Noir. Red cherry, cherry syrup, raspberry, beet root, violets, smoke, vanilla, cola. Dry, medium-bodied, medium+ warm alcohol, smooth tannins. Medium+ flavours added black earth, coconut, black pepper, cloves. Well balanced. Lingering length on a warming finish.
Drink now through 2017.
Food pairing: good pizza wine, planked salmon, or sipping on a patio.
Tasted April 2014
The cooling wind and fog on Carneros hillsides extend the hang time of the grapes on the vines allowing them to ripen fully and develop more complex flavours. - Winery
