Deep and dark aromas and flavors of dried strawberries and cherries follow through to a full body, juicy fruit and a one-dimensional and fruity finish. Underlying, sold tannins

This bottling begins with aromas of cherry and berry along with wild mint and dried tarragon. Strong hits of licorice and star anise play well with the berry backdrop on the palate. Editors’ Choice.
Approachable and bright, this complex Pinot Noir opens with aromas of Bing cherry, cola and boysenberry. On the palate, notes of rich red fruit are supported by hints of oak and are accentuated by soft, silky tannins. The finish is clean and lush with hints of minerality, herbs and vanilla. This wine is an elegant rendering of its cool climate origins in the estate vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands.
