"The 2018 Pinot Noir Warrior Princess was aged for 16 months in French oak barrels, 30% new. Medium ruby-purple colored, it springs from the glass with bold expressions of red currant jelly, pomegranate, rhubarb and wild thyme followed by hints of lavender, underbrush and tobacco leaf. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is tight-knit and intense, featuring loads of mineral and earth layers with a firm, grainy frame and long, energetic finish."- Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker Wine Advocate, January/February 2021

Wines From This Vineyard
The wine has a deep ruby hue with complex aromas of Chinese five-spice, sandalwood, and potpourri; the framework of the wine’s aromatic profile is dark blueberry, red plum, and blackberry. Focused aromatics are followed by complex flavors of fresh cherry, berry liqueur, violet pastille, allspice, and juniper. Fine-grain tannins shape the persistent, spiced finish.
