The Wine Advocate 95
“The medium to full-bodied palate is build like a brick house with a solid frame of grainy tannins and lively acid holding the muscular fruit together beautifully, and texturing the long, earthy finish. 95 points.” – Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Wine Spectator 92
Begins with a surge of vibrant, racy wild berry, cherry and blueberry flavors, made lively by gripping tannins and refreshing acidity. Tightens on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2024. -James Laube

Dark brooding fruit flavors: black raspberry and vineyard-typical black cherry compote. Anise, rosemary and mint leaf then smoked meat. Bold fruit entry, obvious concentration and density but always fresh and pure. Blackberry sweetness, rich and broad, palate-staining. Lingering cherry pit and bergamot tea finish. This is the darkest and deepest and most fruit-driven of our 2014 pinots, the most overtly Californian in style and substance
– so probably the most popular! We’ve produced wine from these thirty year old vines since 1996 so have a level of intimacy with them that is unrivalled – we can predict how they will perform each season based upon the amount of winter rain they receive and that’s why this wine is so consistent each year. In a dry early vintage this cool, north-facing hillside will ripen a little later than other warmer sites but it will use that extra maturation time to produce small dark powerful grapes that ooze richness and depth. This is not a wine harvested at higher ripeness - it’s no higher in alcohol than its stable mates – but it’s a
product of non-irrigated old vines with a substantial level of ‘vine extract’ that age brings. The wine, most similar in style to the 2010 bottling, will naturally find many fans and has a long life ahead of it – 10-12 years will be no problem. A powerful muscular wine with layers of deep fruit and classic Californian broad texture, but always nuanced, complex and fresh, never heavy or simple.
