"The 2013 Pinot Noir is beautiful and shows classic raspberry, black cherry, toasted spice, underbrush and sappy flower-like aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, taut, elegant, and balanced with solid acidity as well as texture, it finishes with terrific clarity and length. This distinctive, classy Pinot Noir needs 2-3 years of bottle age and will drink nicely through 2025."

"The 2013 Pinot Noir is juicy, forward and much more open-knit than most Santa Cruz Mountains Pinots, with the fruit very much front and center. Silky, polished tannins wrap around an expressive core of sweet raspberry, kirsch, spices and flowers. The 2013 stands out for its striking aromatics, racy personality and terrific overall balance. Winemaker Ehren Jordan gave the 2013 11 months in French oak barrels, 25% new."
"100% estate grown Pinot Noir from our 8.7 acre home vineyard, 8 miles from the Pacific in the Santa Cruz Mountains. To preserve the beauty and nuance of this ocean-influenced, cool climate mountain vineyard, our Pinot Noir is made in small lots by non-interventionist methods – hand sorting, native yeast fermentation, hand punch downs. Aged for about 11 months in ¼ new, ¾ neutral French oak. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Vibrant acidity and well-integrated tannins give the red-berried palate great charm and minerality, with deep herbal, black tea notes that show focus and beautiful drinkability now, with the structure to cellar for years to come. 13.4% Alcohol. 315 cases produced."
