On the palate tannins are consistent and elegant, leading to a persistent finish. This Pinot is a true, distinctive and age-worthy expression of the complexity of our Annadel Gap Vineyard. Pair with everything from herb-roasted chicken to sauteèd wild mushrooms. 

93 Points - James Suckling

Lovely fruit to this red with vivid ripe strawberry and lemon rind. Medium to full body, round tannins, and a delicious finish. 

93 Points - Prince of Pinot

Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Uplifting aromas of cherry pie and baking spices lead to a luscious and structured array of black cherry, raspberry, and black tea flavors augmented with a deft touch of oak spice. The wine’s most remarkable feature is the finish, which is filled with aromatic cherry energy and lasts for what seems like a minute. Clearly, an exceptional but young wine that will continue to improve in the cellar and may be worthy of a higher score down the line.
