The 2013 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is intensely floral and lifted, with what feels like considerable whole cluster influence. Crushed flowers, savory herbs and dried cherries all lift from the glass. This is a very pretty appellation-level Pinot. Score: 89 points-- Antonio Galloni, Jan 2016
Deep, ruby red in color working its way to an ever slight, ruby hazed rim. Aromas of ripe red cherry, wild strawberry, coastal moss, and pomegranate lead to underlying notes of Moroccan mint and wet stone. On the palate the wine opens with bright acidity backed by youthful, fine grained-tannins. Flavors of wild dark berries, and crushed stone lead to a wonderfully long finish.
