Tasting Notes:
The 2013 growing season was nearly perfect, which allowed for gradual ripening.  This elegant, dark and textural Pinot Noir displays exotic spices wrapped in embracing layers of blackberry, vibrant bing cherry, earl grey tea and dark chocolate. 

"Fully ripe and plush and long on black cherry fruit with plenty of palatal weight, a complete and generous Pinot that favors richness yet stays away from over-the-top excess and is well-balanced.  It is defined first and foremost by fruit..." Connoisseur's Guide to CA Wine.
