Rita Hills and aged 18 months in 40% new French oak, the 2013 Pinot Noir Earth has toasty oak and creaminess in its gorgeous black cherry and dark fruits, earth, spring flowers and forest floor-like aromas and flavors. Showing more spice with time in the glass, it's a brilliant, almost Burgundian-styled Pinot Noir that has solid mid-palate concentration and sound underlying structure. It will benefit from a year or two in the cellar and drink nicely through 2023. - Jeb Dunnuck collapse

A host of iron, smoke, game and ferrous notes add complexity to the dark red stone fruits, with beams of underlying tannin that provide support. There is no shortage of complexity or personality here, although some of the other wines in this lineup have a certain raciness that is missing here. The Earth bottling is made from the first fruit harvested off the ranch. collapse
