(bottled at 13.9%) A moderately high-toned nose of earthy red pinot fruit nuanced by hints of spice and menthol combines with sweet, rich and nicely detailed flavors that are ripe yet presently restrained, all wrapped in a delicious and persistent finish. This is really quite stylish with sneaky length.

($42; like the Sonoma County and Sonoma Coast bottlings, this is also just under 14% alcohol) Good bright red-ruby color. Crushed cherry, spices, underbrush and a wilder suggestion of meat on the highly aromatic nose. Offers similar elements in the mouth, with the red fruits complicated by a slightly decadent underbrush element. Finishes with fairly full but smooth tannins and good length.

bright aromas of cherry, earth, saddle, and vanilla. Slightly big pinot, with medium weight, and tannins. The minerality showed on the second day along with more complexity on the finish. This was a great wine with a pleasing finish.

Good cherry and strawberry notes. Very nice ruby color. Well structured and nicely polished wine that improved over the bottle but a bit short on the finish.
