94 points PinotFile: "Earth bound aromas lead to a bold wine with serious intentions. The sappy, mid-weight flavors of black cherry, black raspberry, plum and spice attack the palate with a vengeance causing the taste buds to beg for mercy. The luscious fruit is tempered by a firm tannic backbone and the wine is well-mannered despite its fruit load. An Energizer bunny finish that goes on and on. This wine will do a tap dance on your palate and is highly unique among the wines in the Evesham Wood lineup."
My original tasting note: After my first taste of the newest Evesham single vineyard Pinot noir, I badgered Erin for weeks to release it to us. Because that's what I do when I taste and love a wine! The first thing that drew me to this wine was the aromatics – so fragrant and fresh, soaring from the glass with crushed red fruit and floral essence – the nexus of invigorating and inviting. An initially silky and fresh attack of dark cherry and concentrated raspberry picks up layers of savory rosemary and earth. With more air, the cool structure of this beauty reveals itself and hints at its long cellar life ahead. Thoroughly captivating now but I plan to stash a 6-pack for drinking in 6-10 years. - Marcus
