“Medium ruby-purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir Conifer has a layered, perfumed nose of dried hollyhocks, lilac and lavender with accents of fir, bay leaf, forest floor, blood orange peel, tea leaf and woodsmoke over a core of crushed blackberries and black cherries. The medium-bodied palate is silky, intense and very fresh with a grainy frame and long, floral finish. 401 cases produced.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Rich and finely detailed, with expressive cherry and blueberry flavors, accented by sassafras tea and rose petal notes, wrapped in a silky finish that lingers. Drink now through 2029.” - Wine Spectator

Winery Notes: Sleek and refreshing like an alpine lake in late July, the 2016 Conifer exemplifies summer with red fruit, floral femininity and great acidity. Pine sap, plumb, lifted rose and zebra stripe gum aromas give way to ripe strawberry, porcini mushrooms and herbs de Provence flavors in the mouth. This wine beads on the palate like morning dew on a bivouac sack. It is gracefully commanding and shaped like a fat arrow.
