This wine by Adam Lee shows concentrated touches of nutmeg, crushed pepper and dried thyme laid across a base of hearty blackberries, with dried leaves on the nose. There is a strong herbal component to the sip, with eucalyptus oil and black-pepper dust spicing up the hearty beet juice and black-fruit core. A strong menthol lift arises on the finish.
Vinous / Antonio Galloni
Bright violet. Spice-accented red and blue fruits, violet and smoky minerals on the deeply scented nose. Juicy and expansive in the mouth, offering concentrated raspberry and cherry compote flavors that pick up candied rose and allspice notes on the back half. The red fruit and spice notes linger impressively on a smooth, very long finish that's framed by velvety tannins.
The Wine Advocate
Showing a more savory edge, with lots of dried herbs, leather, autumn leaves and assorted red fruit characteristics, the 2014 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard is medium-bodied, nicely texture and has fine tannin that emerge on the finish. Despite the savory aromatic slant, it's sweetly fruited and balanced on the palate. I suspect it will show nicely on release.Range: 90-92
Plump and sumptuous, with a rich core of plum, cherry, blackberry and licorice flavors, retaining juiciness and firming on the finish, where gravel and oak elements add backbone and dimension.
Structured Pinot Noir that displays remarkable richness and depth. This wine highlights cassis, black cherry and sappy underbrush-like aromas and flavors.
