Notes From the Winemaker:

At less than six miles from the Pacific Ocean and subject to sometimes ruthless fog and winds, the Taylor Lane Vineyard can make growing grapes an act of faith.

To achieve full maturity at this coastal site, we paired the early-ripening Dijon clones with an adapted traditional Italian trellis system that carries the vine shoots across a nearly horizontal canopy. The trellis acts as a solar panel for maximum ripening and permits dappled sunlight throughout the day and excellent air circulation to the fruit; its height also lets us graze sheep for weed control.


What Does It Taste Like?

Dense, dark ruby color. The aromas of dense berry pie filling, bright cherry and light smoke notes saturate the nose. The flavors are abundant yet extremely focused and refined...cherries, chocolate, caramel...this is an excellent food wine with a full mouth feel and balanced acidity leading to a long finish.


Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Ripe plum and cherry pie aromas fold over onto the palate, giving this a rich, fleshy, full-bodied mouthfeel. A dash of red and black licorice chimes in before this firms on the finish. Drink now through 2016. 760 cases made." –JL (9/30/2010)

Wine Spectator Magazine ('07 vintage):

Fresh, ripe, vibrant black cherry, wild berry and raspberry fruit is pure, clean, crisp and elegant. Full-bodied, this ends with touches of anise and sage. Drink now through 2012. 852 cases made. –JL

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine ('05 vintage):
"One sip, and all you want to do is sit back and reflect on this beautiful Pinot Noir. It’s so dry and elegant, with crisp acids providing a silky balance to the wealth of cherry, pomegranate, tea, cola, mushroom, spice and balsam flavors. Great now and should develop for at least six years." - S.H. (11/1/2007)
