Dark berries, cherry pit and smoky minerals on the perfumed nose. Bitter cherry and black raspberry flavors are sweetened by notes of cola and rose pastille and lifted by zesty minerality. Shows impressive clarity and urgency on the lengthy finish, which is firmed by dusty, fine-grained tannins.

The coastal proximity of this site in the western Santa Rita Hills comes through in this wine’s sea-spray salinity and small-berried intensity (think cranberries and wild blueberries). Energetic, grippy tannins provide a dynamic foundation for the lusciousness of its fruit, which takes some air to fully develop. Decant it for roast duck.

Earthy and more mineral-driven, with a slightly reticent bouquet of saline-like minerality, ripe cherries and loamy earth the 2011 Pinot Noir Fiddlestix is medium-bodied, structured and broad shouldered, with a big frame that needs time to fill in. Give it 2-4 years in the cellar and enjoy through 2023. Drink 2015-2023. - Jeb Dunnuck
