Concentrated raspberry and brambleberry aromas mix with iron and brown mushrooms on the nose of this wine from a historic vineyard originally planted in 1972. The palate is sanguine with bloody meats and pencil lead, with earthy beet-juice flavors and unrelenting minerality, almost like licking the earth itself.

Bright red. Blackberry, dried cherry, licorice and woodsmoke on the pungent nose. Chewy, sharply focused bitter cherry and dark berry flavors stretch out and deepen with air, picking up a peppery nuance on the back half. Nicely balanced, precise Pinot Noir with no excess fat. Finishes with very good thrust and persistence and dusty tannins that add grip.

A fresh and vibrant white, with lively pear, melon and green apple flavors, accented by a pithy tangerine skin edge. Ends gracefully. Drink now. 19,554 cases made.
