The first vintage from this vineyard, the utterly sensational 694-case 2013 Pinot Noir Bootlegger's Hill was completely destemmed and was brought up in 55% new French oak, with a small part in concrete egg. Offering incredible notes of creme de cassis and black currants, with beautifully integrated oak, it has medium to full-bodied richness, a seamless, layered, ultra-pure texture, fine tannin and a flat out awesome finish. It's certainly one of the superstar Pinot Noirs from California and while it's brilliant today, it should drink well for 10-15+ years. Drink through 2026. (JD)
A thrilling expression of delicate, charming, understated elegance, this captures moderately ripe plum and blueberry flavors with aromatic rose petal aromas. Most impressive is the focus and delivery of flavor, which glides along, touching sweet spots and lingering. (JL)
Ample on the palate and broad in shape, the 2013 Pinot Noir Bootlegger's Hill offers notable depth and intensity to match its decidedly virile personality. A host of black cherry, plum, chocolate, dark spices and new French oak are fused together. This is a decidedly powerful, structured Pinot that needs time to unwind. Tasted next to the Treehouse, the Bootlegger's Hill is a darker and more brooding in style. (AG)
