Robert Parker 95 Points: ” The 2021 Pinot Noir Duende Gold Coast Vineyard comes from 33-year-old, own-rooted Martini clone vines. It has a pale ruby color and alluring Earl Grey tea leaves, orange peel, and Angostura accents with a core of cranberries, raspberries, and strawberries. The light-bodied palate features concentrated, crunchy, fruits, bright acidity, and a chalky texture, and it finishes with tremendous floral layers. All that fruit on such a drinkable frame is addicting! It was matured for 12 months in 50% new French oak, and 100 cases were made..”
Paul Lato Notes: “Our 20th vintage of “Duende” opens with the classic fragrant perfume of Santa Maria. Wild strawberry, Bing cherry, and a touch of spice engage the senses for this soft and supple wine. On the palate, the wine displays a silky texture and vibrant acidity, leading to a long and velvety finish. “
