There is tremendous depth of flavor to the intensely elegant palate, where strong but perfectly ripe dark fruits are balanced by tightly woven tannins, fresh acidity and more rock and soil flavors.

Medium ruby-purple, the 2017 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard is shy on the nose at first, opening slowly to red fruit sparks over a core of dense black fruit with classic notes of tobacco leaf, cola, woodsmoke and violet hints. Medium to full-bodied, it's dense and concentrated in the mouth with tons of dark, savory fruits and floral notions. It has ripe, tight-grained tannins and wonderful freshness to energize the dense, layered finish. - Erin Brooks collapse

Powerful, smoke-accented red berry preserve, cherry-cola and floral oil aromas show very good clarity and pick up exotic spice and vanilla notes with air. The spiciness here suggests to me that a lot of clusters are in play but it's only 5%. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated raspberry, cherry liqueur, spicecake, rose pastille and mocha flavors and a touch of smoky minerality. Weighty yet surprisingly graceful in style, finishing extremely long, with solid thrust, sneaky tannins and lingering florality. -- Josh Raynolds collapse
