Review of the 2008 Vintage

90 Points - 2008 Estate Pinot Noir - Pommard Clone

"Earns its stripes for the sheer power of raspberry and cherry fruit that defines its California ripeness. Firm tannins and acidity fortunately provide balance, and the wine finishes dry. An opulent, extravagant Pinot Noir that will provide lusty drinking over the next six years."

90 Points - 2008 Estate Pinot Noir - Six Sixty Seven Clone

"Bold and ripe in cherry jam flavors. Oak brings buttered toast to the mix. Delicious and savory, this Pinot is solidly in the ripe California style of forward fruit and immediate flash. Drink now and through 2014."

90 Points - 2008 Estate Pinot Noir - Triple Seven Clone

"A big Pinot Noir, darkly colored and full-bodied in the mouth. The depth of fruit is impressive, packing a solid core of black cherries and plums. Might gain some bottle notes over the next 4-6 years."

89 Points - 2008 Estate Pinot Noir

"Solidly in the winery's style, a big, ripe, bold Pinot Noir, rich in fruit and oak, yet dry, with considerable tannins. Strong in raspberries and cherries, yet the structure maintains elegance. Fine now and over the next four years."

87 Points - 2008 Estate Pinot Noir - Eight Two Eight Clone

"This Pinot is all about upfront raspberries, cherries, cola, and sweet red plums, accented with smoky, caramelized oak. It's not one to age, but offers plenty of rich, California-style ripeness now."
