2013 Pinot Noir, Stone Corral Vineyard

A rich and slightly feral quality characterizes this bottling by Steve Dooley, with aromas of elderberry, slate, fennel, dried purple flowers and raw lamb and beef. The palate is dynamic and evolving, with lavender, rose hip, tar and black pepper. It's powerful and strongly flavored, yet not overly rich.

2013 Pinot Noir, Stone Corral Vineyard

Vivid ruby. Intense cherry-cola and black raspberry scents are accented by allspice and fresh flowers. Juicy, deeply concentrated red and dark berry flavors pick up energy with aeration, along with a suave candied rose nuance. Closes on an emphatic floral note, with smooth tannins arriving late. - Josh Raynolds
