New Wine Enthusiast Ratings are out for our two of our Pinot Noirs:
2012 Pinot Noir - Central Avenue Vineyard 90 POINTS
"The savory side of Pinot Noir shines in this bottling from a vineyard south of the Arroyo Seco appellation. Aromas include stewed tomato and green olives with pimento. Falling in line are the Middle Eastern spices and olive tapenade on the palate, with tight pomegranate fruit. Serve with lamb gyros."
2011 Pinot Noir - Four Boys Vineyard 93 POINTS
"Though fairly light in color, the aromas on this single-vineyard wine are quite dark and meaty: dried mushroom, dried cherry, even beef jerky. Once sipped, macerated cherry, chai, black tea and espresso combine into a soft, expressive mouthfeel that finishes with tart cranberry."
Our first vintage release since the passing of Steve Pessagno & Dave Escover, our original and starting winemaking team. We are very proud to continue in the tradition these two men had started.
We believe this is the best Zinfandel we have made to date: lucious fruit, acidity to back it, and great aging potential.
