Ends Sunday, 7pm Pacific

RATINGS

91Vinous / IWC

Vibrant aromas of raspberry, licorice, rose and sandalwood. Juicy and intense, with very good sweetness and fleshiness to the red berry and spicecake flavors. The silky tannins arrive late. I like the high-pitched, spicy fruit character...

90Wine Enthusiast

Shows tart cranberry crispness in addition to richer cherry and raspberry fruit, but it’s a fairly aloof wine now, with competing parts...needs time in the cellar, to let everything mellow. Give it 4–5 years.

TYPE

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.
