A classic Carneros beauty, ripe notes of cherry cola, spiced hibiscus flower, dried strawberries, and clove are accented by other exotic spices, earth, and hints of salinity. Whole cluster fermentation allows the vibrant fruit to be the focus, with fine-grained tannins backing an already exquisite texture full of verve and length. Balanced and full of energy, this showcases one of California’s non-coastal Pinot sites in all its glory.

"Plummy with notes of earthy dried herb, black tea, and contrast of vanilla, this vineyard-designate is firmly structured in tannin, with a sandy, grippy texture. High-toned hints of rose, violet, and strawberry add lift and invitation." -7/1/2021
