93 points Wine Advocate: "A lovely nose of crisp cranberry, Bing cherry and strawberry jam with touches of prosciutto, fresh green tobacco and pink peppercorn. Light to medium-bodied and vibrant in the mouth, it features precise, crisp red fruits laced with meaty and earthy notes, a good frame of grainy tannins and mouthwatering acidity, finishing long, red fruited and savory."
There’s a purity to the fresh raspberry fruit and with air, Pinot’s inner sweetness appears, as does great texture, warm soil tones, and a kiss of orange pekoe tea. A pleasure to drink! The lowest elevation site, 230 to 330 feet, planted in 1989, comprised of a mix of soils colliding. As Jason says, “here the site steps aside a little and lets the variety speak.” - Marcus
