($75; from the home vineyard of Mike and Claudia Weersing, planted on clay-and-limestone soil at a density of 12,000 vines per hectare) Good deep, bright red. 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)
