PinotFile 95 Points
Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Very special nose that attracts with aromas of plum, blueberry, blackberry, cardamom spice and floral blossom. A high-collared wine that is flat out terrific, offering mid weight plus flavors of an array of blue and black fruits. Gifted with plenty of extract yet discreet in generosity with the right touch of oak and earthiness. A tenacious finish completes the picture.
Light cranberry and pomegranate show on the nose of this always-anticipated bottling by Dan Lee, with a pine-needle aroma to provide depth. The slightly sour flavor of Montmorency cherries mixes with snappy cranberry and underripe red currants on the sip, which gains herbal and peppery spice complexity as it breathes.
The 2015 Pinot Noir Double L Vineyard sports a pale to medium ruby-purple color and is scented of Bing cherries, fresh raspberries and wild strawberries with hints of sautéed herbs and underbrush. Medium-bodied, it has a chewy frame and lovely freshness with plenty of expressive/earthy fruit, finishing with an herbal lift.
