Description

"...one of the more aromatic wines in this range and yet there is plenty of fruit depth and underlying structure as well. Red/purplish berry fruit, sage, mint, dried herbs and incense all run through the 2018 Fiddlestix. This is an especially earthy, savory style and will appeal most to readers..." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"Lots of dark fruits, spice, herbs, and marine-like iodine and salty minerality notes emerge from the 2018 Pinot Noir Fiddlestix Vineyard. Medium-bodied, it has a supple, elegant texture and a great finish." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
