Winery Notes: “This wine is immensely deep, dark and textural, with complex aromas that instantly draw one in. Boysenberry and cassis open up on the nose, leading to a mouthfeel that is full of energy, wired with fine tannin and a long spicy finish. This is certainly an age worthy wine. ”
Vinous 93 Points: “The 2018 Pinot Noir C’est la Vie Drum Canyon Vineyard offers terrific depth and substance. There is good depth and pliancy, with terrific up-front fruit and the structure to back that all up. Purplish berry fruit, licorice, lavender and blood orange all build effortlessly as the wine opens up in the glass. Even with all of its obvious power, the 2018 remains reticent.
