From the Critics:

  • "Glass-staining purple. Black and blue fruits on the nose, with suggestions of candied flowers, mocha and anise adding complexity. Gently chewy and broad, offering pungent boysenberry and bitter cherry flavors that gain sweetness and vivacity with air. Floral qualities come up on the finish, which leaves notes of berry preserves and floral pastilles behind." (05/12) - 92 Pts Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
  • "The most dense and structured of the lineup, yet still showing the hallmark elegance and purity of the estate, the 2009 Olson Ogden Pinot Noir Alder Springs, 100% Syrah that's aged for 17 months in 57% new French oak, delivers a deep, smoke-laced array of black cherry, blackberry, graphite, leather, hints of chocolate, and serious minerality and rock characteristics on the nose. While very youthful, there is notable complexity and character here, and the slightly wild character of this vineyard certainly comes through, though it is certainly less feral and gamey than the prior vintage of this wine. On the palate, the wine is medium+ bodied and beautifully delineated and focused, with superb purity of fruit, fine tannin, and a classically styled finish. As with the other wines from this estate, this leans towards the elegant, finesse-driven spectrum as opposed to a richer, more powerful wine. It should benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age, and drink well for upwards of a decade or more." (06/12) - 92+ Pts Jeb Dunnuck - The Rhone Report
  • "A dark plum and blueberry Syrah that's concentrated and full-bodied with back layers of cardamom spice that's big in the mouth and thick with tannins. Give it a chance to open and maybe even decant for a full experience of its intensity. The acidity in the wine will make it sing next to meaty meats." (08/12) - 90 Pts Wine Enthusiast
