Wine Enthusiast Review
Rated 94
From an east-facing knoll in the heart of the appellation, this is an earthy red showing barrel oak and tea accents lifted by bright acidity and ongoing freshness. Blueberry, pomegranate and rhubarb flavors mingle around layered tannins and a light body. The texture is taut yet lush, with a savory baking-spice component.

Wine Tasting Notes
The 2016 vintage of our Emerald Ridge Pinot is especially focused and lively, beautifully showcasing its Green Valley roots. Bright cherry, cigar box, and rhubarb pie aromas lead the way, followed by darker scents of blueberry, blackberry, and raspberry blossom after time in the glass. Savory notes of thyme, cardamom and clove provide an extra layer of complexity. The mouth is full of sweet cherry/berry plush fruit, carried on firm tannins, giving the wine that lusciousness that keeps you coming back for more. Dark cherry pie with nutmeg spice echoes in the energetic finish. The salty, tangy notes of an aged goat cheddar bring out the sweet fruit in the wine, as does a savory smoky glazed ham, or mushroom bruschetta.
