The wine saw 10% stems and 10 months in 35% new French oak, with a small amount in concrete and larger oak. Great notes of mulberries, blackberries, black cherries, violets, and spice all give way to a rich, medium to full-bodied Pinot Noir that has ripe tannins, an expansive texture, loads of charm, and great finish. It's another beautiful, beautiful wine to enjoy over the coming decade or more.

Soft and seductive in texture, it has complexity around rich layers of balanced spice and earthiness. - VIRGINIE BOONE

Medium ruby, it's scented of black tea leaves, licorice, wild blackberries, dried lilac and tree bark with hints of blood orange, potpourri, saline and crushed red berry fruit. It’s medium-bodied and ultra silky with wonderful layering of pure fruits, amaro and spices, with a gentle, grainy frame and fantastic juicy freshness, finishing long and elegant. How lovely! 3,500 cases produced.- EB

Aromas of violets and blue fruit, as well as roses and rich, deep cherries and plums. Some very ripe aromas in this 2017 vintage with a soft palate and a round, smooth feel that holds well on the finish. Drink over the next six years.

Lively and juicy, featuring cherry tart, dried fig and plum compote flavors that are fresh and offer a touch of ripeness. The plush, spicy finish lingers, with minerally notes. Drink now through 2024. — K.M.
