This is a Pinot Noir meant to be aged. No question about it, from the citrusy acids to the sandy tannins... Packed with raspberries and cherries, the wine is completely dry and firm in minerals, and seems easily able to age for at least six years. Only 120 cases were produced.

Review

Grown on a south-facing hillside five miles from the Pacific, this pinot noir is tight, light and pretty. ... the wine focused on tart cherry, red apple-skin and spicy conifer scents. It's clean and not at all pushed, the fruit flavors sustaining their freshness as the wine develops with air.
