2015 vintage: Leading off the reds, the 2015 Pinot Noir should be another beautiful wine released under the North label. Elegant and complex aromatically, with lots of baking spices, cumin and celery seed, it has a rocking core of fruit, lots of floral overtones, medium to full-bodied richness and an overriding sense of elegance. It will shine out of the gate, yet evolve nicely.

2014 vintage: The finest vintage to date, the 2014 Pinot Noir is flat out awesome. Completely destemmed, fermented and aged in 50% new French oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered, it's locked and loaded with notions of black raspberries, spring flowers, spice and violets. These notions give way to a full-bodied, incredibly pure and layered Pinot Noir that has terrific tannin quality and a great finish. Drink this seriously good Pinot over the coming 7-8 years, and I certainly wouldn't be surprised to see it keep for longer.

2013 vintage: Another sensational wine released under the North label, there are 200 cases of the 2013 Pinot Noir and, like the Chardonnay, it had just been bottled a little over a week prior to my visit. A rich, full-flavored beauty that doesn't put a foot wrong and still offers fabulous Pinot Noir typicity, it reveals a ruby translucent color to go with classic currants, forest floor, licorice and assorted earthy, underbrush aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, layered, seamless and perfectly balanced, with terrific intensity and length, it's a gorgeous effort to drink anytime over the coming decade, and I wouldn't be surprised to see it evolve longer.
