Wine SpectatorTop 100: 2013, Rank: 48. Elegant, with supple, fresh and lively flavors of raspberry and cherry, meshing harmoniously with details of clove, forest floor, tobacco leaf, pepper and dried lavender that echo on the long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2024. 500 cases imported.

Wine AdvocatePale to medium ruby-purple-colored, the 2011 Pinot Noir offers pronounced notes of red cherries, black raspberries and red currants with suggestions of underbrush, violets and cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied with plenty of mouth-filling red berry and earthy flavors, a medium level of fine-grained tannins and vibrant acid, it finishes with very good length and finesse. Drink it now to 2017+.
