Medium dark ruby red; explosive fruit aromas of mixed wild berries and damson with elevated floral and potpourri notes, underbrush and sweet truffle. Forward rich berry fruit with kirsch and plum and side notes of bergamot and licorice. Ripe, opulent and lots of Californian power. Youthful tannin and vibrant acidity pick up and extend the finish to maintain balance and freshness. Drink between 2011 and 2016.

Wine AdvocateThe medium ruby-hued 2008 Pinot Noir Ryan is fashioned from Dijon clones and the California clone called "The Martini Selection." A crisp, elegant, fresh Pinot, it offers notes of rhubarb, candied cherries, pomegranate, sassafras and hints of herbs and spice, but not the size of the Aidan. Consume it over the next 7-8 years.

Wine SpectatorExhibits a rich mix of loamy earth, dried berry, spice, cedar, cherry rhubarb and red and black licorice flavors. Full-bodied, intense and concentrated, with a touch more finesse than the Finn bottling. Drink now through 2019. 738 cases made.
