Wine Advocate | Rating: 91The 2015 Pinot Noir Riddle Vineyard has a medium ruby-purple color and compelling nose of roses, kirsch, cranberry sauce and eucalypt plus touches of cloves and fallen leaves. The medium to full-bodied palate is packed with taut red berry and menthol-laced flavors, structured with ripe, firm, finely knit tannins and finishing in thought-provoking layers.Drink Dates: 2017 - 2024Author: Lisa Perrotti-BrownIssue: 229
