We scored big on this one. A restaurant only, limited allocation of the ‘Dierke’. An organically certified hillside vineyard nestled just off Bodega Highway that produces notoriously exuberant and powerful Pinot. Bold dark notes of succulent blackberry, ripe black cherry, and crushed cassis. Intriguing floral hints of dried lavender and violets lend a delicate touch to the mid palate, interwoven with warm spice elements of nutmeg and clove. A must have for Pinot lovers.

Vinous

The 2014 Pinot Noir Dierke opens with striking aromatics. One of the more tightly wound wines in this lineup, the Dierke is beautifully chiseled and nuanced throughout. Sweet floral and spice notes add nuance to the dark-fleshed fruit, but the Dierke is not at all fully formed yet. Still, it is alluring and loaded with pedigree.
