This wine has a savory, smoky bouquet layered with dark fruit notes of blueberry, black cherry, and notes of allspice. This full-bodied pinot noir has plush flavors consistent with the aromas, as black fruits are layered with mineral and spice notes. The texture is rich with medium tannins and a long, dusty finish. This lush pinot noir matches well with pork tenderloin and rack of lamb.
The 2010 year began with average rainfall followed by a very warm spring which enhanced fruit set. The summer and fall months were the coolest on record leading to an exceptionally long growing season. A six day heat spell in mid-September finished the ripening. Yields in the Edna Valley were average and the grapes had lower sugar levels and perfectly developed flavors.
