The lush flavors of this remarkable wine lead smoothly into a textured, silky finish.
Lisa Perotti-Brown (formerly with Robert Parker) 95 Points: “ Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2020 Pinot Noir Magic Moments Hyde Vineyard cascades out of the glass with fragrant scents of cherry pie, fresh raspberries, and black cherries, plus nuances of lavender, mossy bark, and crushed rocks. The medium-bodied palate has a solid frame of fine-grained tannins and bold freshness supporting the tightly wound red and black berry layers, finishing long and mineral-laced..”
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.”
