Irresistibly Californian in its sunny, fruit-forward style... with aromas of red cherry, wild thyme and sage. It hits the palate with heft, delivering boysenberry, bay leaf and peppercorn spiced fruits in the mouth with ripe, grainy tannins and great juicy acidity, finishing long and layered.

An elegant red, featuring fine-grained red fruit flavors that are filled with lithe minerality and spiciness. Crunchy adidity ties all the elements together. Finishes with touches of cocoa powder. ~ Wine Spectator

Medium ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir Older Barrels gives up notes of dried black tea leaves, granite, woodsmoke, dried tobacco leaves, violet and forest floor with a core of ripe red and blue fruits. Medium-bodied, it features wonderfully concentrated, spiced fruits in the mouth with ripe, grainy tannins and great juicy acidity, finishing long and layered. ~ Wine Advocate

The 2017 Pinot Noir Older Barrels is a selection from Ashley's done in all neutral oak, which, not surprisingly, brings out a decidedly understated and gracious expression of the Sta. Rita hills. Floral and spiced notes are nicely lifted over a core of sweet Pinot fruit. ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

With its forward strawberry fruit and cinnamon-stick oak spice, this wine is irresistibly Californian in its sunny, fruit-forward disposition. It's simple and crowd-pleasing, for a pork loin dinner. ~ Wine & Spirits
