This is appealing for its focused savory herb and dried berry flavors. A cedary, loamy earth aftertaste marks the finish. One of James Laube's recommended California Pinot Noirs.

A bright Barbaresco—this opens with a fresh, floral quality that recalls blue flower and pressed rose. Beyond those aromas are layers of almond skin, ginger, cola and hazelnut. It’s an elegant and fine expression that needs five more years of cellar aging.

Youthful and yeasty, offering floral apple and lemon aromas, with crisp yet creamy flavors of ginger, vanilla and spice. Drink now. 200 cases made. –TF

Dark and fleshy, delivering ganache, black tea and mulled plum fruit backed by slightly chewy licorice and blackberry confiture notes on the long, muscular finish. There is lots of stuffing here, so this will need a little time to stretch out. Drink now through 2014. 550 cases made. –JM

This is an elegant and supple red, exhibiting aromas of black raspberry and spice that follow through to ripe, layered cherry and toasty caramel flavors. Drink now through 2017.

White peach and white flower notes, with a hint of butterscotch, ride the rich texture in this harmonious white. Integrated and lingering in the finish. Drink now through 2018. 275 cases made.

Butterscotch, clove and nutmeg aromas and flavors meet peach and citrus notes in this well-oaked white. Ever-so-slightly coarse on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2020. 300 cases made.
Score: 88 | July 31, 2012 | Wine Spectator
A muscular, oaky style, leaning more to the spice side of the flavor spectrum, with lemon and apple underneath. Firm finish. Best from 2013 through 2016. 71 cases made.
Score: 88 | July 31, 2012 | Wine Spectator
A fluid, easygoing style, offering apple, peach and grapefruit flavors. Just lacks a little stuffing. Drink now through 2018. 145 cases made.
