Opulent aromas of baked black cherry, star anise, cardamom and thyme make for a rich entry to the nose of this bottling. The palate, meanwhile, is framed with grippy, chalky tannins, giving a firm structure to the raspberry, cherry, dark herb and loamy earthy flavors.

90/100 - The 2019 Pinot Noir Estate offers a burst of sweet red berry fruit, spice, dried herbs and rose petal. Sweet floral accents add lift and nuance. The potential of this site is significant. The wines aren't all there yet, but they are getting close. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous 

95+/100 - Medium ruby, the 2019 Pinot Noir Estate offers impressive aromatic layering and detail, evolving as it spends time in the glass from cranberry and burnt orange peel to violet, tea leaves, pipe tobacco and aniseed. The medium-bodied palate is tangy and ultra fresh, with a chalky frame and loads of citrus, earth and herbal touches fanning across the finish. It takes significant time to really open up, and I suspect it has more to give with another 2-3+ years in bottle. - Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate

This Pinot is a cuvée from the hillside and riverside blocks of the property.
