Edwards, a noted winemaking consultant, planted this vineyard on a steep southeast-facing hillside just past the southern edge of the Russian River Valley. The exposition of the cool site helps to ripen the fruit, while that slow ripening lends savory flavors true to coast Pinot - wild strawberry darkened by umami tones of mushroom, seaweed and soy. Those dark tones will blend right in with roast duck, or eggplant stuffed with veal and wild mushrooms. Lovely, essential Sonoma Coast Pinot, it captures the coastal breeze.
Despite its certain youthful reticence, this very deep and generously fruited wine still conveys a strong sense of richness and potency. It is medium-full-bodied and leans a little to firmness in terms of its structure and overall balance, and it shows a few acidy angles and edges at the finish. Its vigorous, very keenly defined fruit is simply relentless, however, and it will hold the wine in very good stead for the three to five years of cellaring that it so clearly deserves.
Deep red. Vosne-Romanee-like dark fruit aromas complicated by flowers, gunpowder and earth. Sweet and nuanced in the mouth, with notes of red and black fruits, underbrush, chocolate, mocha and cola. The most harmonious of these 2002 Pinots. Finishes with fine, palate-dusting tannins and plenty of complexity. A big mouthful of fruit and underbrush.
A very distinctive style that mixes zesty ripe cherry, wild berry, rose petal and sassafras flavors with a mix of citrus, fresh earth and spice. It finishes with a vibrant aftertaste.
