Description

"...Black cherries, spice, and hints of scorched earth all emerge from this charming, medium-bodied, balanced beauty that has real Pinot Noir charm." ~ Jeb Dunnuck 

"Elegant, showing suave dried berry and red fruit flavors that are flush with dried herb and understory accents. Rich and minerally on the finish." ~ Wine Spectator

"...soft, pretty and supple, all of which give it considerable near and medium term appeal. The pliant blue and purplish berry fruit and soft contours are classic Sta. Rita Hills signatures." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
