Wine EnthusiastSoft, seductive and focused, this best of the best from the appellation is lengthy and complex, with tension on the palate. Dark cherry, wild cinnamon, crushed rock and black tea mingle effortlessly around a rich, dense roundness that never loses its balance or sense of delicious purpose.
Wine AdvocateMedium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley springs from the glass with notes of Black Forest cake, warm black raspberries and red plums plus hints of lilacs, Sichuan pepper and aniseed. Medium to full-bodied, it gives tons of vivacious red and black fruit flavors with lovely spicy accents and a soft texture, finishing on a lingering peppery note. 1,472 cases were made.
Wine SpectatorLight toasty oak casts a mix of caramel and cedar notes, joining a mix of elegant cherry, berry, graphite and spice flavors, ending with fine-grained tannins. Best from 2020 through 2027. 1,472 cases made.
