Reserve Pinot

Our Reserve release brings together more than 40 years of experience growing and crafting Pinot Noir. We hand select individual blocks from our estate vineyards; each lot is vinified separately in the finest barrels in our small lot “Winery Within the Winery” facility. At blending time, each lot is tasted for complexity, concentration and grace before the final blend is composed.

 

Reviews

“91 Points - A lovely restaurant-style Pinot Noir, showing lots of class and elegance, yet with enough modesty to step aside and let the food star. Dry and silky, it shows raspberry, cherry, red currant and cola flavors, accented with sweet, smoky oak. ”

“91 Points - There is no question but that the wine in ripe and fully fleshed out, but it is in every way a deep and keenly defined effort, and its combination of juicy, cherry-like fruit, velvety feel and very fine balance are all the hallmarks of good Pinot. It may not be one that we would choose to accompany more delicate dishes, but it will do stunning service with the likes of duck in sauces or a savory roasted pork tenderloin. ”
