The aromatics highlight the essence of our coastal Green Valley
environment: wild berries, thyme, spearmint, truffle and freshly tilled soil. The wine is poised, vibrant and dynamic with a dark fruit pastille core then cherry, licorice, and briary notes. Concentrated and deep but always bright and quite tight knit with drawn out length and fresh focusing acidity on a spicy finish.

Wine Advocate

The 2021 Pinot Noir Ryan has a medium ruby color and autumnal scents of truffle and forest floor, cinnamon and Earl Grey tea leaves complementing a core of wild berry fruit. (In 2021, the wine comes from the Dutton-Jentoft and Widdoes vineyards rather than 100% from Jentoft as in previous vintages.) The medium-bodied palate is supple and detailed with a concentrated core of mineral-driven fruit. It has a silky texture, energetic acidity and a long, layered finish. This is so delicious and very easy to drink!

Wine Enthusiast

This exciting wine offers intricate and complex aromas, a lively but ripe palate of red cherries and raspberries and a zingy texture of great acidity and integrated tannins. Everything from wild blackberries to sage to black tea comes up in the aroma, lasting through the palate and into the lingering finish. Best through 2033.
