Winemaker Notes:

The 2015 Ten Oaks is light ruby in color, with aromas of pomegranate, black cherry,  potpourri, and a slightly dusty, herbal component. The palate shows cherry, cranberry, and juicy raspberry flavors, along with a mineral, almost saline quality that combines with mouth-watering acidity. Firm tannin provides a beautiful frame for the wine, carrying the flavors through a long, lush finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Pinot Noir Ten Oaks is pale to medium ruby-purple in color with a very pretty nose of crushed cranberries, red cherries and pomegranate with suggestions of lavender, rose hips, dusty soil and dried Provence herbs. The palate is medium-bodied, finely crafted, refreshing and elegant, offering fine-grained tannins with a bit of stemmy chew and finishing with lingering earth layers. 150 cases were made.

Wine SpectatorThough complex and graceful, this avoids excessive weight without sacrificing density, maintaining a fine balance and showing promise for short-term cellaring. Best from 2020 through 2028. 150 cases made.
