Here’s what the experts have to say

“Beautiful and complex aromatics featuring ripe cherry, red berry, floral notes, oak, char and a hint of allspice. Spiced cherries carry the attack with a hint of oak and herbs. The mouth feel is creamy, there is a healthy tannin structure, and the finishing spicy kick is lingering and memorable.”

“Rusty” Gaffney, MD

“..a premium Pinot noir that is beautifully balanced and totally pleasing to the palate. The tannins are not overpowering and allow the spiced cherries and ripe fruit flavors to shine through.”

Nelson Tucker

“This is an earthy and nuanced wine with very good structure and complexity….”

Arthur Z. Przebinda

“Rich and ripe , this is a nicely balanced Pinot perfect for the summer table.”

Gregory S. Walter

“A delicious, balanced and deceptively satisfying effort that won’t wow you with its power or punch but rather its harmony and overall sense of depth. Lovely and understated.”
