Aromas of cranberry, delicate oak, and raspberry on the nose complement a flavor profile of Rainier cherry, juicy raspberry, and smoke. With moderate acidity and fresh red fruits on the finish, this wine is approachable and widely appealing.

There's an expert level of restraint on the nose of this bottling, with aromas of rose hips, fennel, damp soil and strawberry. There's a great herbal display on the palate, with marjoram and tarragon accents, as well as crisp and deliciously tart flavors of plum skin and red currant.

Glistening ruby-red. Mineral- and spice-accented red berry and cherry aromas are complemented by cola and floral nuances. Silky and appealingly sweet, offering vibrant raspberry, cherry and rose pastille flavors braced by a building mineral quality. Shows fine definition and floral lift on the energetic, persistent finish, which is framed by smooth, well-knit tannins. 15% whole clusters and 30% new French oak.

From some great sites, the 2018 Pinot Noir Estate is all varietal, aged 14 months in 30% new French oak and bottled without filtration. More raspberries, toasted spice, forest, and floral notes emerge from the glass. It's medium-bodied, elegant, and lively on the palate, with good depth and moderate length.

This red offers crushed red plum and cherry flavors, with peppery details, supported by fresh acidity. The minerally finish is crunchy and well-spiced, with hints of cocoa powder. Drink now through 2023. 2,788 cases made.
