Tasting Notes

Rich and smoky in a nonetheless elegant package, with layered notes of wild strawberry, pastry, pomegranate, toasted brioche, candied orange zest, dried tea rose and almond cream. This shows beautiful texture and integration, with a long, creamy, smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2020. 20 cases imported.

Score: 93Alison Napjus, WineSpectator.com, June 2012

(made from 80% pinot noir and 20% chardonnay): Bright, orange-tinged pink. Pungent, expressive aromas of singed orange, fresh red berries and gingerbread, with a hint of toasty lees. Deeply concentrated red fruit and citrus zest flavors are impressively lithe and focused, with a back-end kick of peppery spices adding lift. Silky, bright and focused on the smoky, mineral-accented finish, which lingers with impressive tenacity and length. Seems still quite youthful.

Score: 94Josh Raynolds, vinous.com, November 2011

A wonderful wine that has preserved its freshness while welcoming elements of toasty maturity. It is crisp, definitely on the dry side, with red currants, bright wild strawberries over the purest acidity. It's sure to age over many years, but, if you must, can be drunk now.
