Vibrant blueberry-strawberry fruit intertwines with aromas of dark-red rose, maple, licorice, and toasted hazelnut. On the palate, juicy raspberry, dark cocoa, and pennyroyal flavors emerge. Delicately-balanced acidity and crystalline minerality lead into a firmly structured finish.

Wine EnthusiastThis full-bodied wine smells like black pepper and light wood smoke, and tastes rugged but fruity as blackberry blends with woodsy notes. A dose of tannin provides grip in the texture, and good balance bodes well for mid-term aging. Best after 2019.

Wine AdvocateA beautiful cool-climate Pinot Noir made from Dijon clones 667, 777 and 115, this wine was aged nine months in 30% new French oak. The wine, from a high-elevation vineyard and one of the estate vineyards of the Jackson family, offers up notes of raspberry, strawberry, and a subtle hint of blueberry fruit. Lovely soil notes are intermixed in this decidedly cool-climate, fresh, lively, mid-weight Pinot Noir to drink over the next 3-4 years.

Wine SpectatorClean and direct, this is moderately complex, with savory berry, underbrush and cedar notes. Fails to lift off into other dimensions for now. Drink now. 4,995 cases made.
