#52 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2019 – 97 Points, James Suckling
The stunning bouquet of the 2017 UV-SL Pinot Noir offers striking aromas of juicy blackberries, crushed blueberries, and blood orange oil. The palate is loaded with concentrated dark fruits intertwined with an essence of cedar and pine forest floor. The tannin profile is broad yet supple with an incredible freshness leading to a long and succulent finish. Suggested drinking window is 2020 through 2032.
“Medium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2017 Pinot Noir UV-SL Vineyard gives gorgeous black cherries, pomegranate, fresh blackberries and wild blueberries scents with suggestions of licorice, potpourri, chocolate tart and clove with a touch of dried Provence herbs. The palate is full-bodied with a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins and oodles of freshness supporting the flamboyant black and blue fruits, finishing with an exciting herbal lift.”

Beautiful, dark berries, strawberries and perfume. Flowers, too. Full bodied, very tight and chewy with polished tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Give this time to show it’s true glory.

Rich and expressive, featuring concentrated boysenberry, plum tart and dark cherry flavors that are flush with crunchy acidity. Minerally midpalate, with a long, plush finish that offers flinty and meaty overtones.
