Fresh and lively, offering dense, complex blueberry, boysenberry and raspberry notes that fold together. Tightly focused, rich and expansive on the aftertaste, where the flavors linger. (JL)
The first vintage for this cuvee from Brian, the 2014 Pinot Noir Kessler-Haak Vineyard comes from a site in the Sta. Rita Hills located just to the west of Clos Pepe. It has a terrific perfume of spice, black currants, violets and the classic earthiness of the region, as well as tons of richness on the palate, a forward, sexy texture and a good finish. It should drink well in its youth. It’s always a blast to taste with Brian Loring, and these latest releases are rock solid. Brian called 2014 the best vintage since 2010, going on to say the vintage offered big yields, lots of hang time and no heat spikes. All of his latest releases show plenty of fruit and purity, with approachable, forward characteristics. (JD)
Rocky gravel meets plum blossoms, strawberry jam, cola and nutmeg on the nose of this single-vineyard expression by winemaker Brian Loring. Once sipped, dark and rich pomegranate and olallieberry fruit takes hold, with graphite minerality making a splash midpalate. (MK)
