The pinnacle Pinot expression of Colene Clemen's estate vineyard, Steve artfully blends this stunner from a few of very best barrels and most distinguished vineyard blocks. It opens with intense aromas of deep, dark red fruit, sweet spice, and sandalwood before giving way to a seamless, supple array of dark fruits. This is the "bold and beautiful" of Steve's Pinots.
2015 vintage notes
94 points Wine Spectator Insider: "Silk in a glass, with a sleekly complex core and refined raspberry, orange tea and spice flavors that glide along the finish. Drink now through 2023."
2014 vintage notes
94 points Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Pinot Noir Estate Grown Victoria is a little closed, offering earthy notes of moss, tree bark and dusty soil over a core of rhubarb, red cherries and mulberries, with a waft of cedar. Full, densely-packed and richly-fruited on the palate, it delivers a wall of red berry and earth flavors with a solid backbone of grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long."
