Crafted by Joseph J. Wagner, 4th generation winemaker, with winemaking roots in the Napa Valley since 1906. Deep Ruby with red berry fruit aromas, tea and sweet spice notes. On the palate flavors of jammy blackberry and cherry with pronounced sweet vanilla oak, cacao and pepper spice notes. Soft tannins and bright acidity, well balanced, with mineral tones on a long finish ending with toasty spice! Nice! A restaurant favorite!

This Pinot Noir (Syrah lookalike) is young and already drinking nicely.

Full bodied and intense with medium minus acidity.

Showing black plums, blackberries, oak, spices, chocolates, coffee, alcohol, licorice and peppercorn.

Soft finish with bitter herbs.

Good right out of the bottle and better with airtime. Only after 45 minutes of airtime, tannins show up.

A little unbalanced right now, with some RS, but will be better in 3 to 5 years. Spicy, tangy and hot.

Doesn't show like a Pinot Noir, but enjoyable and good for parties.

14.8% alcohol by volume.

88 points.

$50.

Always a favorite. Perfect with a Christmas turkey and all the fixings. Tasting young and could use some more time, but delicious as always.

Very smooth and easy to drink, though a bit heavier than your standard Pinot. However I have no complaints. A fantastic Pinot.

A favorite. Always easy drinking with notes of cherry, strawberry, and some vanilla. Almost like a cherry coke. It's thick, but still fresh.
