...sweet-smelling plum, cherry candy and grenadine aromas. The palate is front-loaded with sagebrush, thyme, dried lavender and rosemary notes, while a hibiscus flavor unfolds in the background.

Aromas of ripe red fruits, cola and mocha are joined by a slowly emerging spicy nuance. Supple and broad in the mouth, offering fleshy raspberry and blueberry liqueur flavors complemented by suggestions of candied licorice and black cardamom. In a plush, ample style, with velvety tannins lending shape to the clinging finish.

90+ The Wine Advocate

...scented of raspberries, wild strawberries and lavender with hints of wild thyme and forest floor. Light to medium-bodied, with wonderful energy and tension in the mouth, it has a quiet intensity of flavors a long, chewy finish.

...smoky, earthy style as well as notes of ripe black cherries, roasted herbs, hints of oak and underbrush...textured, classic Pinot Noir that has a polished texture and top-notch balance.


United States, California, Central Coast, Edna Valley

Edna Valley AVA is within San Luis Obispo County, and within the large Central Coast AVA. Edna Valley became an AVA in 1982 and it includes 22,400 acres of extremely fertile land blessed with a long growing season. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are the principal grapes, though Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Albarino, Grenache, Viognier, Merlot and Petite Sirah also are grown. Spanish missionaries were growing grape vines in the Edna Valley in the 18th century, but the valley’s modern wine industry took off in the 1970s. Today there are more than 50 Edna Valley wineries.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
