Notes from the Winemaker:

This wine is from a combination of Melville, Turner, Kessler-Haak, and Hilliard-Bruce Vineyards, all within a 1.5 mile radius and all within the Sta. Rita Hills AVA.

Exceptionally elegant ruby red color. There is a fresh femininity in this pinot noir that expresses the bouquet with floral hints of stone fruit, pink jasmine and rose petal. In the mouth this wine has a beautiful softness that is affluent and velvety throughout the palate. There is a play on acid and tannin in the mouth that lingers throughout. The palate sings with red raspberry, black leaf tea, and a hint of orange zest with cardamom spice.


Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
:
"Vivid red. High-pitched aromas of redcurrant, strawberry and blood orange, with a lively mineral quality. Tangy and precise, offering sweet red fruit and floral flavors and a touch of bitter herbs. This comes in at 14% alcohol but seems far lighter. Finishes on a resonating note of wild strawberry and with impressive precision." - Josh Raynolds (Nov/Dec '10)

Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Here’s a rich, full-bodied and somewhat heavy wine fresh out of the bottle. Made from different vineyards throughout the appellation, it shows a certain generic Pinot Noir quality, albeit at a high level. The cherry flavors have an edge of heirloom tomato."  - S.H.  (12/31/2010)
