Sitting just above the wine’s surface, a layer of complex aromas evolves: fresh cranberry, pomegranate and raspberry that turns into crushed gravel, coast redwood forest floor, lemon zest and shiitake mushroom. In the mouth, the wine shows itself as indulgent with a pleasing depth and slight heft; similar cranberry, a touch of blue fruits and hints of lavender combine for a satiating richness. The wine loses with notes of brioche and strawberry tart, with very little tannin and a quenching, balanced acidity. - Winery

94 Points Robert Parker | Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2018 Pinot Noir Sleeping Hollow Vineyard leaps from the glass with notes of cranberry sauce, redcurrant jelly and black raspberries with hints of black tea, forest floor and bouquet garni with a beautiful undercurrent of rose oil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is filled with ripe red berry layers and loads of earthy/savory accents, supported by finely knit, grainy tannins, finishing with great length and focus.
