Full bodied and velvety, this Pinot Noir is drinking beautifully now but has the bones to age for another several years. Concentrated aromas of cranberry sauce seem to demand a spot at Thanksgiving dinner, but the crushed cherries, cola and underbrush nuances promise to pair with so much more. Supple, integrated tannin and oak surround a juicy core with excellent, food-friendly acidity and a long, satisfying finish.

Wine Advocate

Pale ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir Graham Family Vineyard offers concentrated aromas of cranberry sauce, crushed cherries, gravel dust, cola and underbrush with touches of Angostura bitters, orange peel and tar. It’s medium-bodied and silky, offering intense, earth-laced fruits, a gently grainy frame and a long, juicy finish.

Wine Enthusiast

Full bodied and robustly velvety in style, this offers a richness of vanilla and baking spice around core elements of rhubarb, strawberry and orange peel. The flavors come together around supple integrated tannin and oak, with a deft thread of acidity throughout.
