"Bold yet refined, this very unique interpretation of Pinot Noir is part site, part clone and part viticulture. All vineyards of course have these same components. What makes this one so unusual is the seamless integration of these parts. Maybe that is why the wines have such depth, balance and flavor. This one would be happy with rare grilled steak and morels. 290 cases produced. "

91 points "Offering notions of sweet black currants, blueberries, flowers, charcoal, smoke, and background oak, the 2005 Pinot Noir Pisoni Vineyard reveals superb fruit on the attack and mid-palate, good opulence and richness, and a long finish with no hard edges. Enjoy this beauty over the next 5-6 years. " Best 2007-2013
