"Unsurprisingly, the final blend reflects the story of place. It is very much Russian River Pinot Noir – red and black fruits, floral and spice notes, a balance between showing richness and keeping focus, nice mid-palate weight, and the overall elegance I expect from this wine. As always, it’s very versatile with food – and paired with grilled pork tenderloin and Moroccan spices a few nights ago it was amazing. The 2018 reminds me quite a bit of the 2004; which we opened a week ago, and is still youthful and very nuanced. I think this is going to be a wine that can be enjoyed for the next 7-9 years, and quite likely well beyond that time. "
