2021 Laguna Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir
Ruby red-Purple. Pure, deep and powerful yet poised with delicately perfumed aromatics and vibrant tension. Ripe salted wild black and red raspberries, dried violets, graphite filings and the slightest of tannins redolent of black tea leaves. Hints of blood orange. Brimming with sumptuous bright purple to red-purple fruit flavors and backed by mineral undertones and textural complexity. Balanced with both grace and full expression.Join To Purchase
Plenty of strawberry and orange peel character with hints of spice and mineral character. Full yet tight and focused with very fine tannins that run the length of the wine. You don’t see it but it pulls at the end. Excellent pinot. Drinkable but give it three or four years. Drink after 2025.

Medium to deep ruby-purple in color, the 2021 Pinot Noir Laguna Ridge Vineyard explodes from the glass with vivacious scents of Bing cherries, redcurrants, and cranberries, leading to wafts of lavender, rose oil, and crushed rocks with a touch of bay leaves. The medium-bodied palate is bright and breezy, with ethereal flavors and fantastic freshness, finishing with a satiny texture and wonderful lift.
Vinous, Antonio Galloni
The 2021 Pinot Noir Laguna Ridge is bright and beautifully focused from start to finish. Crushed red berry fruit, blood orange, mint, spice, rose petal and white pepper are all finely delineated. The 2021 impresses with its tension and overall energy. A move to picking this fruit earlier has resulted in a Pinot endowed with notable tension. I love the focus here. The 2021 is a stunner.
