The 2021 Pinot Noir is pure and focused with brightness and stunning structure On the nose, raspberry, tart cherry and cassis merge with notes of violets, orange spice and a burst of fresh basil.  Fine, chalky tannins and hints of crushed cacao underlie the brilliant red fruits and florals

The density, complexity and persistent minerality of this wine lead into a finish that lasts and lasts The 2021s will age gracefully for many years

Each block was picked by hand at night, and firm, cool clusters were delivered to the winery before sunrise We hand-sorted the fruit and reserved 4% for whole-cluster fermentation The remainder of the fruit was destemmed before we transferred it into stainless steel tanks for five to ten days of cold maceration Fermentation was guided by native yeast, and hand punch downs were tailored to how each tank tasted each day. The free-run wine aged in French oak barrels, 55% new, for 15 months prior to bottling.

The 2021 Pinot Noir The Estate has inviting aromas of cranberry sauce, mushroom, allspice and bitters. The palate's concentrated, nuanced fruit is structured by focused acidity and generous, powdery tannins, and it finishes with a flourish of spicy accents. It's drinking beautifully now and will develop savory complexity in bottle over the next decade. 95 Points, Wine Advocate June 2023
