2015 Pinot Noir, Stone Corral Vineyard

(68% whole clusters and 60% new French oak) Pale Ruby. A highly expressive bouquet evokes ripe red fruits, cola, candied rose and vanilla, along with a smokey mineral overtone. Concentrated yet lively in the mouth, showing excellent clarity and spicy lift to the spice-laced raspberry liqueur, cherry cola and floral pastille flavors. Shows impressove tension and thrust on the subtly tannic finish, which hangs on with bright, mineral presence.

2015 Pinot Noir, Stone Corral Vineyard

Crisp black-plum and mulberry aromas meet with wild mint, baked earth and rosemary on the extremely elegant nose of this bottling by veteran Stephen Ross Dooley. There is a strong herbal kick to the palate of oregano and marjoram, but also floral hints of lavender and violets, all decorating the dark fruit in the background.

2015 Pinot Noir, Stone Corral Vineyard

Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Stone Corral Vineyard displays subtle red currants, Bing cherries, and dried leaves notes with wafts of lavender and black pepper. Light to medium-bodied, the palate is delicate and refreshing, with a gentle frame of chewy tannins supporting the perfumed red berry flavors, finishing on an earthy note. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
