Exotic spice and black fruits on the nose. Fine tannins support a textured, elegant mid-palate of Italian plum, cassis and dark chocolate. Finishes with notes of vanilla bean and black cherry.

Wine Advocate

The 2008 Pinot Noir Estate Dussin Vineyard underwent a native fermentation with elevage in 40% new oak. Dark ruby in color, this exceptionally perfumed Pinot displays an aromatic array of wood smoke, toast, floral notes, black cherry, and black raspberry. This leads to an elegantly styled, spicy, focused, impeccably balanced wine with excellent volume, intensity of flavor, and a lengthy, seamless finish. It merits a minimum of 3-4 years of cellaring.

Score: 93. —Jay Miller, October 2010.

Wine Spectator

This is broad and ripe, featuring dark berry and smoky, minerally flavors that compete for attention on a light, airy frame. Firm tannins mark this for the cellar, but the generosity of flavor should carry it well. Best from 2012 through 2018.

Score: 92. —Harvey Steiman, August 31, 2010.
