Tasting Notes
Luxuriant, intense red cherries, raspberries and graphite deeply flavored, concentrated and well-structured with the voluptuous core of wild blackberry compote, saddle leather spiced with red peppercorn, coriander, and fresh lavender. Full-bodied with bright fruit that's pure and persistent.

Blended from the strengths of three Pinot-dominant sub-appellations throughout Sonoma's coast, Gaps Crown Vineyard of Petaluma Gap, Labyrinth Vineyard of the Russian River and Attune Vineyard in Carneros. Crafting a wine that is a unique portal to the complexity of the sharp topography and diverse micro-climates that champion our Sonoma Coast.

94 Points - Wine Spectator

95 Points- Ian Blackburn

Showcase fruit, deep, dark, showing high standards and technical prowess.  Saturation from rim to rim...depth without evidence of over extraction, rich texture and mouthfeel, bold Pinot Noir from exceptional sites translates into pleasure, richness, flesh and intensity.  Grilled mushrooms, dry-aged meats, bold exotic cherry, cream caramel and orange peel on the rim...this is a hedonistic Pinot effort.
