WINE ENTHUSIASTSplashes of high acidity and contoured minerality mark this estate-grown wine with a sinewy, fresh palate that's inviting and exotic. The defining characteristics are a pleasant mix of roses, soy and forest floor. Dark cherry and pomegranate lie beneath the more savory aspects, ultimately leaving one with an appreciation for how velvety a wine can be.
VINOUS (ANTONIO GALLONI)The 2013 Pinot Noir Pastorale Vineyard is bright, precise and lifted. Rose petal, cranberry and cinnamon notes abound in a super-expressive, crystalline Pinot endowed with fabulous detail and nuance. In my view, the 2013 is a bit more refined and less bombastic than the 2012. The 35% whole clusters add an attractive sense of lift through the mid-palate and finish.
