Media Reviews

Josh Raynolds

Vivid red. Expansive aromas of ripe red berries, candied flowers and baking spices, with a smoky mineral topnote that gains strength as the wine opens up. Coats the palate with appealing sweet raspberry and cherry liqueur flavors that tighten up and become spicier on the back half. Shows excellent clarity and floral lift on an impressively long finish that`s shaped by fine-grained, even tannins. 93 points

Erin Brooks

The 2017 Pinot Noir Louise Vineyard was made with 49% whole clusters and aged 18 months in 66% new French oak. Pale to medium ruby, it has a pretty nose of dried lilac and lavender, dusty earth, saline, rhubarb and cranberry with amaro accents and a savory undercurrent. The palate is medium-bodied and silky with slowly blossoming flavor layers and a finely knit frame, finishing long and minerally with juicy acidity to lift. This is a more serious style that will require a couple more years in bottle to fully come into its own. 701 cases produced. 92 points
