About

93

"Mimi Casteel is the grower for these grapes, as the name suggests. A dense, detailed expression of that vineyard, planted to a single Dijon clone, it's loaded with tart black fruits, annotated with dried herbs, earth and clay. The finish brings zippy, citrus-infused acidity. -PG"

"This is all about structure, with an impressive core of bright acidity and finely groomed tannins, wrapped in pinpoint notes of raspberry, violet and crushed stone. Needs time to bloom. Best from 2021 through 2029. 350 cases made. — TF"

93 Erin Brooks - Robert Parker's the Wine Advocate

"Medium ruby in color and shy to begin, the 2017 Pinot Noir Mimi's Mind slowly opens to licorice, allspice and cinnamon with blackberry and marionberry pie, loamy earth, violets, bergamot and an earthy undercurrent. It’s medium-bodied with oodles of ripe, earth-laced fruits, a pleasantly chalky frame and woven freshness, finishing long and flavorful. I suspect this will get better with a bit more time in bottle."

Product Description:

"Mimi’s Mind 2017 is a more elegant, richly brocaded expression of Pinot noir produced from the nearby Hope Well Vineyard. Composed entirely of PN clone 667, which is small berried and spicy, this wine is energetic and nuanced with elevated mineral, floral, and fruit elements alongside truffles, and savory herb notes. The lengthy finish carries these flavors to a perfect conclusion. It is a wine to savor and celebrate." - Winery
