RobertParker.com 87 points - Made in a seductive style, the 2013 Pinot Noir Grand Reserve comes from their estate vineyards in Monterey and Santa Barbara (about two-thirds from the former and one-third from the latter). This is the largest cuvee of these Pinot Noirs, with 8,750 cases. It shows soft berry, strawberry and cherry fruit, loamy soil undertones and sweet tannin in a medium-bodied, sexy style. Drink it over th next 4-5 years..Robert Parker, December/2014
Grand Reserve is a winemaker’s blend of our mountain, ridge, hillside and benchland grapes grown along California’s cool coastal appellations. We select grapes from our best estate vineyards and then monitor, taste and guide each individual lot throughout the winemaking process. Each lot is kept separate, barrel-aged and crafted-boutique winery style. Our winemakers have an unmatched palette of flavors, toast levels and terroir nuances from which they masterfully blend these exemplary rich, deep and complex wines.
