Brilliant ruby in color, vivid aromatics of red currants, cedar and cinnamon stick spring from the glass. On the palate, delicate and lifted floral notes of crushed rose petal and hibiscus are anchored by more tender impressions of strawberry gelatin, tangerine oil, black cherry compote and baked red apples. The mouthfeel is focused and vibrant, possessing a gorgeous mineral component along with lively acidity that augment the wine's generous and cohesive finish.

Wine EnthusiastLight raspberry-sorbet notes meet with fresh fennel fronds, pepper and cinnamon on the nose of this bottling from Chad Melville and family. It's tight and tart on the palate, with dried cranberry, pine needle and eucalyptus flavors that juxtapose with the more fruit-driven nose.

Wine AdvocateSpice box, wild herbs, black currants and black cherry notes all emerge from this nicely fruited, plump, mouth-filling 2014 Pinot Noir Estate, which has present tannin and a solid finish. Mostly destemmed and aged 11 months in neutral barrels, it's a good value and will drink well for 4-5 years.
