Deep violet in color, this lush pinot noir offers aromas of wild berries, rose petals and cola. The juicy wine envelopes your palate with bright raspberry, plum, clove, cocoa and vanilla which seamlessly leads to a long, toasty finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Pinot Noir Russian River (5,000 cases produced) offers plenty of bright, rich, cherry fruit, a luscious, medium-bodied mouthfeel, and impressive purity, texture and length. This 2011 is already performing well and should continue to do so for 5-6 years.

Wine EnthusiastThis dramatic Pinot Noir hits all the sweet spots. It's incredibly rich with cherry pie, red currants, cherry liqueur and smoky sandalwood flavors, yet remains balanced, due to firm tannins and great Russian River acidity. Delicious now, and for the next 2-3 years at least.

Wine SpectatorVibrant, fresh and dense, with a tight core of plum and raspberry fruit that remains tightly focused and persistent. Lively acidity keeps the flavors dancing. Drink now through 2020. 5,072 cases made.
