Robert Parker 97+ Points: “ The Pinot Noir Magic Moments Hyde Vineyard is an incredible wine, powerful but featherweight. It has a pale to medium ruby-purple color with delicate scents of lavender, tea leaves, saline, and crushed red berries, opening to deeper tones of fragrant earth and licorice with time in the glass. In the mouth, it’s smooth as silk with bright, crunchy, spicy fruits, firm but fine and detailed, and finishing with a classic peacock’s tail of expanding flavors. Only 100 cases were made.”
Paul Lato Notes: “Layers of blueberry, spicy cherry and pomegranate showcase this wine’s beautiful balance between concentration and complexity. The palate is lush and velvety, with supple tannins adding silkiness to flavors of bing cherry, plum and vanilla spice. On the finish, the core of red fruit continues with fresh acidity and dense texture, indicating it to be one of our most ageable wines.”
