Deep ruby/purple-colored, with a rocking bouquet of ripe cherries, mulberries, leafy underbrush, blood orange, and spring flowers, it's medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, layered, and textured. With good acidity, present tannins, and a great finish, it has everything you could want from a Mountain Pinot Noir. Give bottles a year or two and enjoy through 2028.

On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and supple, with an ample core of fruit, velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. This will be a delight to follow for the better part of a decade. - William Kelley

The palate is fuller bodied yet with earth more than fruit, combining loam, forest floor and mushrooms with black plum and wild berry flavors. Drink now through 2036.
