93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2009

Captivating nose offers raspberry, rose petal, smoky earth and flinty minerality. Densely packed and quite complex, in a less fruit-driven style than the Riverbrook, but downright sexy. A broader and more saline wine, with the energy and definition that comes from limestone. Savory, broad and tactile, with palate-saturating persistence. Fascinating soil-driven pinot, especially recommended for fans of biodynamic wine. (Terra Firma Wine Company, Oakland, CA)
