This wine opens with a big, aromatic burst of sweet sassafras, baking spice, blackberries and stone fruits. In the mouth, it is full and robust with ripe fruit and round tannins. As the wine continues to open, it shows a true purity of fruit and becomes silkier on the palate. Juicy, sweet notes of black cherries, violets and sweet vanilla oak carry though in a long, pleasing finish.

This smooth, ripe and inviting wine wafts raspberry, strawberry and cherry aromas and offers all that fruit in the flavors as well. While full-bodied and rich in texture, an appetizing vein of good acidity slices through the palate and finish.

Moving into some black fruits with the 2020 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley, it offers notes of dark fresh earth, toast, and cinnamon stick. The texture is full, with fairly gripping structure, and the palate is rich with black cherry, tea leaf, and forested earth. Drink this over the next 10 or more years.

Packs some punch, with a dense and juicy core of linzer torte, blackberry and black cherry flavors. Well-defined, with light anise and apple wood accents through the structured finish. A bit unbridled in feel but will certainly have fans. Best from 2023 through 2029. 3,170 cases made.

The 2020 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley) is bright, punchy and full of character. Macerated dark cherry, spice, chocolate, leather and incense are front and center. This mid-weight, juicy Pinot is very nicely done. It offers terrific depth and tons of allure.

Medium ruby-purple, the 2020 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley has restrained, slightly rustic rhubarb and red and black cherry aromas with touches of burnt orange peel, licorice and laurel leaves. The medium-bodied palate is firm and gently chewy with muted freshness and a spicy finish. This 2020 denser and less defined, so drink it over the next 2-3 years.
