Lush beautiful aromas of boysenberry, cedar, violets, tobacco and graphite lure you into a fascinating display of brooding flavors. Savory smoked duck, shiitakes, orange peel and gingerbread give tension to accents of forest floor, plum, blackberry and flint with a savory, mouthwatering texture. This wine is tart, full, deep, fleshy; full of wonder and pleasure.

First up and seriously perfumed, the 2011 Pinot Noir de Villiers is a gorgeous wine that excels both for its complexity and for its richness and breath on the palate. Giving up notes of ripe cherries, wild strawberries, exotic flowers, citron and spice, it has medium to full-bodied richness, a core of sweet fruit and a rich, seamless texture. In fact, it has a rare level of depth and texture in the vintage, and while beautiful today, I imagine it will evolve gracefully.

Tight, with a gritty, earthy edge to the firm strawberry, dark berry, violet, spice and cedar notes, gaining depth and ending with a persistent finish. Should gain with age. Drink now through 2022. 1,314 cases made.

Raspberry jam, orange peel and sweet oak flavors mark this Pinot Noir. It's very dry, acidic and tannic, not showing much of interest now, but the complexity suggests limited ageability. Try after 2017.
