This very interesting wine treads a delicate balance between exuberantly ripe persimmons and cherries, and earthier notes of red tomatoes. But those tomatoes are rich and satisfying, like summer heirloom varieties picked fresh off the vine that are sweet as a peaches. Veteran Stemmler, who can usually be depended on to turn out serious Pinot Noir, has succeeded here, giving us a delicious wine for drinking now, but one whose balance should protect it for 6–8 years.

Features supple wild strawberry, cherry and raspberry coulis flavors that are fresh, smooth and elegant, with pretty dried lavender, spice and black tea notes on the finish. Drink now through 2019. 709 cases made. –MW

This bottling displays the same combination of early flesh and back-palate firmness as its mate from the Nugent Vineyard, but it is the pick of the two by dint of its slightly deeper and more constant fruit. Even though weighty and fairly well-filled, it is a bit crude at the edges just now, and its recommendation comes with the proviso that it be given another few years of quiet time in the cellar.

A ripe and moderately grapey nose of cassis, plum and spice elements leads to rich and solidly well-concentrated medium-bodied flavors that also exhibit a grapey character. There is a touch of warmth as well as a noticeable acid tang to the attractively persistent finish. As the description would suggest this robust effort is somewhat awkward today but there is good underlying material and my score assumes that it will come together in time.
