90 points Wine Spectator: "Smooth and broad, not heavy (and not rosé either) but mouthfilling with its pear and pineapple flavors, remaining tangy with lime and spice notes as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2014. 330 cases made. (2011)"

Producer notes: "Made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes this wine is a 'Blanc de Noir', made in the same fashion as Champagne, but minus the bubbles! The fruit was whole cluster pressed right after picking and the lighter, higher quality juices were sent to a 1,000 gallon stainless-steel tank where they were allowed to settle for three days. The juice was then racked off the heavy sediment, leaving behind the color pigments and the tannins, into a second stainless-steel tank where it was inoculated and a slow cool fermentation was allowed to take place to complete dryness. The wine was aged on the lees left behind the by the yeast for six months. The lighter fluffier lees where frequently stirred during this time to provide a beautiful round richness to the body of the wine. The aromatics of this wine are intense and full of fruitiness. Tropical notes such as pineapple, passion fruit, and mango abound, as well as more traditional tree fruit aromas like white peach, Bartlett pear, and golden delicious apple. The wine is enjoyable alone but is amazing paired with seafood and creamier dishes and will accent well with spicier fair. 330 cases produced. Alcohol 13.5%."
