Here the flavors are dark, smoky and gamy. Dark red cherry, plum, tobacco and cured meats flesh out in a resonant, highly expressive Pinot endowed with notable depth, especially within the context of the vintage. Hints of dried rose petal and violets linger on the finish. From start to finish, the Encantada is superb.

Rita Hills is a beautiful effort that spent 16 months in 33% new French oak prior to being bottled un-fined and unfiltered. Showing notions of cherry pits, framboise, mint and spring flowers, it flows onto the palate with a rich, seamless texture, outstanding purity of fruit and a nicely focused, layered finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. Completely destemmed, it shows the prettier side the variety, and will shine for 5-7 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

Thyme, wet slate and olallieberry reduction sauce lead the nose on this single-vineyard study from veteran winemakers Billy Wathen and Dick Dore. Its rich, fruit-forward mouthfeel features ripe raspberries, plum skin tartness and black tea tannins.

Aromas of dark berries and plum show a distinctly ripe character and pick up a sexy floral nuance with air. Round and fleshy, showing very good depth and breadth to its dark fruit and floral pastille flavors. Closes smooth, seamless and appealingly sweet, leaving smoke and Indian spice notes behind. - Josh Raynolds
