The 2016 Pinot Noir Two Birds Estate has a pale to medium ruby color and aromas of violet, pink peppercorn, potpourri, prosciutto and dusty earth, with crunchy red and black fruits at the core. Medium to full-bodied, it packs in the fruit, earth and savory layers, with firm framing tannins and juicy acidity to carry the long, savory, bergamot-laced finish. This is just stuffed with flavor and is very dense. Yum! 227 cases were made.

The 2016 Pinot Noir Two Birds is a bit more laid-back and medium-bodied than the Harper's Rest, but it too is a pretty rich Pinot. Dark red cherry, plum, flowers and spice are all laced throughout. There is good energy and drive to the Two Birds.

Rich, plush and extracted, featuring a deep well of ripe cherry, dark berry and steep tea flavors that are backed by medium-grained tannins. Silky midpalate, with a finish of sandalwood and mocha. Drink now through 2023. 227 cases made. — KM
