The 2014 vintage of Estate Pinot Noir is bright crimson in appearance and expressive of the distinctive character of the Arroyo Grande Valley which produces well structured pinot noir. Mineral notes in the aroma are complemented by hints of cranberry chutney and a faint trace of cigar box. On the palate, this elegant and well balanced pinot noir displays notes of bright raspberry and a touch of black pepper. With refreshing acidity and great structure, this wine is ready to enjoy now but will age gracefully over the next decade. Pair the 2014 Estate Pinot Noir with grilled quail or smoked salmon crostini.

Vinous"(aged for 14 months in French oak, 26 percent of it new): Brilliant ruby-red. Highly fragrant, spice-accented aromas of red and dark berry preserves and floral pastilles; a hint of vanilla emerges with air. Expansive raspberry and cherry-cola flavors are energized and lifted by juicy acidity and a late jolt of white pepper. Packs a solid punch but comes off lithe, finishing with excellent focus, well-knit tannins and strong persistence. -- Josh Raynolds"

Wine EnthusiastTangy raspberry, hibiscus and sweet pomegranate notes meet a brick-like minerality on the nose of this appellation blend. It's light and easy on the palate, its fruit notes lifted by hints of cola and chaparral spice.

Wine SpectatorDisplays a dusty, earthy, savory edge that tilts toward the dry and dusty side at the expense of a more forward fruit purity. An attractive and easy-to-enjoy wine. Drink now. 5,018 cases made.
