“This Pinot Noir has a deep garnet color and intense aromas of blackberry, cherry and raspberry flavors. The richness and complexity are reminiscent of a truly exceptional vintages of Sea Smoke or Kosta Browne, with an array of dazzling notes of fresh raspberry, dark cherry, rhubarb, exotic spices, and a hint of toffee all melded across a velvety smooth texture. This wine will shine tonight after a light decant, but will continue to age gracefully for another 5 years. Truly extraordinary.” - California Wine Advisors

“The Coteaux Nobles Pinot Noir comes from 27-year-old vines planted at the Nobles Ranch vineyard in Fort Ross-Seaview AVA. Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2017 Pinot Noir Coteaux Nobles has the most intense, fragrant perfume of warm cranberries, redcurrant jelly and fresh raspberries with hints of cinnamon stick, wild sage, underbrush and damp soil plus a waft of candied violets. Medium to full-bodied, the palate bursts with vivacity and freshness, offering layers of red berry and earthy flavors and a very finely grained texture, finishing long and perfumed. 400 cases were made.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Leading off the Pinot Noirs, the 2017 Pinot Noir Coteaux Nobles comes from the Fort Ross-Seaview AVA and is one of the more complex, nuanced wines in the lineup. Classic notes of kirsch, blueberries, incense, candied violets, and kisses of cola and cedary spice all flow to a medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced Pinot Noir that has fine tannins and integrated acidity. Drink it over the coming decade.” - Jeb Dunnuck
