Ripeness marks this Pinot. It floods the mouth with jammy raspberries and cherries brightened with acidity. Seems a bit straightforward by virtue of sheer dazzle but it is a superb example of the Santa Rita Hills at a... Ripeness marks this Pinot. It floods the mouth with jammy raspberries and cherries brightened with acidity. Seems a bit straightforward by virtue of sheer dazzle but it is a superb example of the Santa Rita Hills at a good price. - S.H.

The 2010 Pinot Noir Estate Verna's floats on the palate with sweet dried cherries herbs mint and fennel all of which come together in a refined medium-bodied style that is highly appealing. In 2010 the Verna is all about finesse. A sweet perfumed finish rounds things out nicely. This is a very pretty showing. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016. -Antonio Galloni

Pure high-pitched aromas of red berries Asian spices and rhubarb with a floral nuance in the background. Spicy and taut offering tangy cranberry and pomegranate and a deeper suggestion of bitter cherry. Finishes bright and long with lingering spiciness and hints of blood orange and dusty minerals. This wine was made with 100% whole clusters and could use some time to unwind. 90+

A lovely nose offering Bing cherry and dark strawberry along with more subtle notes of violet and cedar. Beautifully textured on the palate this wine retains the classic Central Coast pinot mouthfeel while also showing brighter acidity than some of its counterparts keeping it bright and lively. More floral and exciting than rich and heavy this is an excellent pinot especially at this price.
