Our Reserve Pinot Noir is a barrel selection from the best vineyards on the estate, with an emphasis on strength, depth and elegance. The 2014 growing season brought us a relatively dry summer which resulted in a fuller-bodied wine with fruit-forward characteristics of ripe cherry, blackberry and raspberry character with overtones of earth, mocha and spice. Sunny days and cool nights combined to form a well-rounded Pinot Noir with fresh flavors and healthy acidity. In the realm of Pinot Noir, the 2014 Reserve brings a little more intensity of flavor while still remaining elegant from the native yeast fermentation.
Wine EnthusiastThis is labeled reserve, but it's a tart austere wine with little charm. The diluted raspberry fruit carries a metallic note through the finish. Note that the front label correctly says it's a 2014, while the side (back) label mistakenly reads 2013.
