Description

"Rich red cherry, rhubarb and alpine strawberry aromas meet rust and shaved licorice on the nose of this beautiful bottling from the Parker family’s cool-climate vineyard. It’s deceptively light on the palate, with airy flavors that intensify to exotic cherry, mulberry, tea leaf and maduro cigar, framed by firm, structured tannins. Drink 2020–2024." ~ Wine Enthusiast 

“A spicy, underbrush, forest floor and currant-filled effort, the 2014 Pinot Noir Parker West Vineyard saw close to one-third whole cluster and more new oak than the other releases, spending 17 months in 51% new barrels. This medium-bodied, supple, elegant effort is more open and evolved than the other releases and shows more old world charm, yet with that present Cali fruit. Drink it over the coming 4-5 years.” ~ Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
