Pinot Noir, Emmaline Ann Vineyard

2014 – 91 points

“This comes from a small vineyard planted on a forested hillside near Sebastopol, and it feels like a coastal wine, with a green edge to its high- toned red fruit that suggests sumac and rhubarb. Maybe because the fruit is so high toned, the oak feels a bit prominent at first, gripping and cedar scented, but the vineyard’s refreshing herb and flower aromas win out in the end.” — Luke Sykora.
