Description

"...bright, focused and beautifully layered. Interestingly, the Pinot off this site has the same edginess that is found in the Chardonnay. Savory, floral and expressive, with beams of supporting structure the Parker West is a very pretty and also done in a style that is less overt than is often the case in the Sta. Rita Hills." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"...has a pale ruby color and scents of cola, woodsmoke and cranberry with Bing cherry, bergamot, tree bark, tobacco and dried leaves. Light to medium-bodied and silky with earthy fruits and spicy accents, it's knit by fine, grainy tannins and good freshness, finishing long and spicy." ~ Wine Advocate 

"Lean and earthy, with a woodsy spice, this is long and linear, focused by its oak frame. It has the stuffing to age, or you could decant it now and pour it with duck." ~ Wine & Spirits 

"Cranberry serves as the backdrop on the nose of this bottling, while the funky earth, game and sweetly seared oak play in the foreground. The palate is framed by wood-spice flavors of sandalwood and cedar, with tart cranberry and roasted pork elements arising as well." ~ Wine Enthusiast
