Pure and pretty: prototypical Temperance Hill Pinot. Mouthwatering aromatics melding sweet, floral, and savory elements give way to elegant red and blue fruits. This wine is built for the cellar and will deliver an ethereal drinking experience in five to ten years. Only 100 cases made. - Marcus
2014 vintage notes
Our unanimous favorite of the line-up. This wine is gorgeous. Equal parts supple, concentrated, balanced, it's damn near perfect Pinot noir. Attractive fruit, complementary sweet, savory and spicy components. Production of Temperance doubled in 2014; still there were only 150 cases made. Buy it. A Reserve Pinot Noir Club selection. - Marcus
92 points Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Temperance Hill Pinot Noir, comes from a single acre planted in 1990 and apparently had so much fruit that they bought some fruit from the Pumphouse block. It has a sense of airiness on the nose, brambly red berry fruit, cold stone and brown spices. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a little chalkiness on the entry with fine acidity and a very precise finish that lingers long in the mouth. Just a very classy Pinot Noir destined to age with style and panache."
