Good mid level Pinot for most. Nice ripe fruits of raspberries, cranberries, dark cherries, a little more minerality in this wine that others but not overdone. All Jim's wines are high in acid. He wouldn't have it any other way. Good clean ripe fruit finish.

Jim Prosser’s wines are well constructed and exacting capturing deep soil characteristics and the best attributes of fruit. Delightful!

Dark and luscious, acidic. Aromas of sage, underbrush, mushroom, cherry and chicory, with woody and funky notes.
