Gorgeous ruby garnet color hints at the alluring aromas of pomegranate, black cherry, blood orange white pepper and spice. This wine is full, soft and round with a graceful but structured texture and a palate of blueberry, mineral, graphite, cranberry, cola and lilac.

Wine EnthusiastEarthy elements of beet juice, wild raspberry, anise and graphite mark the nose of this single-vineyard wine by Central Coast Pinot pioneer Josh Jensen. It's tense on the palate, but not exactly sour or bitter, showing tart raspberry, woody juniper and lots of chaparral influence. It's smooth but the tannins are noticeable.

Wine SpectatorNotably earthy, with damp forest floor flavors dominating, this features savory herb and dried berry flavors cloaked in tannins. Needs time. Best from 2016 through 2022. 1,402 cases made.
