With a shiny garnet hue, herbaceous and spicy aromas of fresh mint, juniper, clove and dried oregano dominate initially while dark nuances of cocoa powder, chipotle, smoked apple wood and graham cracker linger in the background. The palate impression is lively with a burst of fresh acidity bringing both elegance and structure to the wine's savory and intense finish.

Wine AdvocateStill slightly closed, with a focused, streamlined feel on the palate, the 2013 Pinot Noir Terraces offers a pretty and lively bouquet of sweet berry fruits, spring flowers, mint and sappy herbs. Medium-bodied, elegant and pretty, with a core of sweet fruit, it never really expands on the palate, but finished with superb length. Reminding me of a Solomon Hills release given its vibrant fruit profile, it certainly gives up plenty of pleasure, but it will benefit from a year or so in the cellar.
