Everything about this Pinot screams quality. Although it will only improve with time, it’s certainly enjoyable now for its raspberry, cherry, cola and oak flavors that will pair perfectly with a great steak. The Dijon clones that constitute the blend reacted perfectly to the cool vintage, yielding ripe fruit along with tart acidity and firm tannins. Drink 2017–2027.

A sappy, warming Russian River pinot, this carries an inviting natural sweetness in its dark berry flavors, while the grip of its spicy tannins provides direction.

A sappy, warming Russian River pinot, this carries an inviting natural sweetness in its dark berry flavors, while the grip of its spicy tannins provides direction. It’s powerful yet easy to drink, with a firmness to match the fat of a roast duck.

Here the nose runs a bit more to the red side of the fruit spectrum with lovely notes of clove, cinnamon and sandalwood. There is the same lovely sense of underlying tension and verve to the detailed medium weight flavors that possess a refined mouth feel primarily due to the fine-grain of the supporting and slightly dusty tannins. This is a bit more structured and while it certainly could be enjoyed now it should be more than capable of reward mid-term cellaring. Outstanding ♥

This is yet another very successful wine from a cool area in a cool vintage, and while "insider geeks" who slavishly chase reduced alcohol wines somehow tend to overlook this winery, it is known to the rest of us as a producer of keenly balanced, nicely fruited wines from the very western end of the Sonoma coastlands. In this offering, the fruit is not surprisingly tilted to the tight side of the spectrum even as it delivers notes of red cherries and a supportive layer of creamy oak. It is firm but not hard on the palate and, like its siblings, will reward a patient stay in the cellar.
