(from Sta Rita Hills fruit that produced 108 cases; 14.3% - $50) A somber yet elegant earthy red pinot fruit that also displays subtle spice and bramble notes that complement ripe, pure and supple medium-bodied flavors that possess good depth and fine length on the tangy finish. While a bit edgy at present, this should round out with 2 to 3 years of cellar time.

The nose is powerful chocolate, kirsch with just a hint of ripe bruised blueberry. Elegant palate entry with bold flavors, delicate acidity and smooth mid palate finishing with silky finesse.

Ruby red color. Fresh and vivacious, yet refined and structured nose of raspberries and black licorice with floral elements of rose and violets with hints of white pepper. This wine does not need a nose-job. Very nice. Awesome balance between red and black fruits, acid, tannins and spice. The finish is long and reveals raspberry, apple and spice. The wine has a New-World punch to it but is restrained by old finesse.
