#65 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2013
The 2005 Reserve has aromas of wild raspberry, Bing cherry and caramelized orange that evolve with toasted hazelnut and creme brulee. The palate is layered with flavors of raspberry, guava, pineapple, cocoa and sweet spice. Crisp on entry, with a slight minerality, the texture is smooth and velvety. The wine has a balanced acidity and long finish that lingers on the palate.
Varietals: 74% Pinot Noir, 26% Chardonnay
