    Wine Enthusiast
    Snappy red-cherry aromas meet with tarragon and other fresh garden herbs on the nose of this appellation bottling. The palate is vibrant and fresh with red fruit as well as prominent spices like mace and cinnamon, but that minty tarragon tone is what ups the uniquely delicious quotient.

    Tasting Panel
    This elegant and restrained Pinot Noir shows earthy and savory notes of baking spices, mocha, and cinnamon within a juicy, lithe, revelatory texture. A line of salinity wraps around blue- berry, sage, and mulberry on the finish.
