Nuance may not be this riveting Pinot's strength but deep and wonderfully generous fruit is, and there is no end to the wine's tireless sense of richness at any point. It is full and fleshy with show-stopping concentration and depth, and, although about as big as good Pinot Noir wants to be, it is balanced and uncannily well-structured giving lie to the notion that big cannot be beautiful. Its lavish, decidedly opulent style will prove to be too much of a good thing with lighter foods, but it will make a most memorable foil to savory lamb shanks or a classic Boeuf Bourguignon. *Two Stars*
A classic representation of this first rate site, the 2013 Pinot Noir Rosella's Vineyard offers a pretty, perfumed style in its black raspberry, rose petal, violets and floral bouquet. Tight, reserved and slightly backwards, it has beautiful purity of fruit and ample tannin, which is a defining character in the vintage. It's another effort from this team that needs short term cellaring. (JD)
This generous red offers ripe plum, raspberry and wild berry flavors, with hints of crushed rock, wilted rose, fresh-cut herbs and a measure of creamy, vanilla-tinged oak. The tannins are well-integrated. (JL)
The 2013 Pinot Noir Rosella's Vineyard presents an intriguing combination of Santa Lucia Highlands fruit and distinctly cool, savory aromatics. Hints of rose petal, mint, crushed flowers and cinnamon come together in a supple, highly expressive Pinot with tons of near and medium-term appeal. (AG)
