Occasional Wine Note: This is not your normal California Pinot Noir. It's not really a normal Pinot period. The fruit is more what you'd expect from a Burgundian style Pinot, but then you add in that smoke and pepper and what? It works very well. We would definitely recommend that you let this one sit as even at 8 years old now, it seems to still need a bit of time. Great value for such a stunning wine.

    Brilliantly fresh and snappy black raspberry aromas lead into a savory streak of mulberry-laced pork fat, hickory and tobacco smoke, with a hint of crushed slate on this wine’s fascinating and shape-shifting nose. Peppery spice grips the palate immediately, then splashes fresh red plum and pomegranate flavors around, finishing on white pepper, cracked nutmeg and unrelenting tension.

    Seeing roughly one-third whole clusters and a mix of new and neutral oak, the 2015 Pinot Noir Estate is another terrific wine from this benchmark estate. Possessing a more structured, backward feel as well as a deep, powerful nose of black currants, charcoal, and scorched earth, this is a serious, age-worthy Pinot Noir that needs 3-4 years of bottle age yet will see its 20th birthday in fine form.
