Reed is our most unique Pinot Noir vineyard on Mt Harlan and the 2013 vintage gave us a special alluring intensity. This block consistently shows fascinating notes of sassafras, Chinese five spice, horehound, red plum, and distinct minerality. With its signature seductive, graceful, savory texture and super fine-grained tannin structure, the accents of earth, leather, pomegranate, dried cherry, white pepper and sage are further enhanced and continue on through the finish.

Wine EnthusiastFrom a vineyard that Josh Jensen planted in 1975 comes this bottling that shows sultry black plum, minty herbs, tarragon, black slate, smashed mulberry and a touch of pork fat. A wondrous array of baked red and black fruit meet with clove, nutmeg, more tarragon and minty flavors on the palate too, producing delicious, dynamic flavor. It's like an expertly cooked stew of fruit, spice and herb.

Wine SpectatorFirm and spicy, with floral and wilted rose scents and a core of chalky, dusty earth. The core of red and dark berry fruit rises to the forefront and gains depth and persistence. Most impressive on the long and layered aftertaste. Drink now through 2022. 346 cases made.
