Description

"A killer value, the plump, spicy, fruit-filled and complex 2014 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills is medium-bodied, charming, silky and layered on the palate, with tons of charm. Buy a case and drink it over the coming 2-3 years." ~ Wine Advocate

"Powerful and well-structured, with savory accents to the red currant, plum and spiced cherry flavors that feature some creamy notes. Hints of mocha show on the richly spiced finish. Drink now through 2020." ~ Wine Spectator 

"Plump red cherry and star anise aromas meet sagebrush and rust on the nose of this appellation blend. It’s light bodied on the palate, where tangy acidity presents cranberry, mace and dried meat flavors." ~ Wine Enthusiast
