"The 2021 Pinot Noir East Ridge is a wild, exotic wine. Dark and mysterious, the 2021 possesses striking nuance and complexity. A wine of deceptive power and structure, the 2021 exudes class. There's plenty of tannin, but all the elements are so well balanced. Layers of vibrant fruit build over time, leading to a deep, explosive finish that is unforgettable. The balance here is magnificent."

"The 2021 Pinot Noir East Ridge has notably pure, detailed aromas this vintage: raspberry jam and crushed red cherries are accented by tones of lavender, mixed tea leaves, dried flowers, dusty earth and amaro. The medium-bodied palate explodes with highly concentrated, complex flavor layers. It has a seamless structure and a very long finish. It's fantastically expressive yet offers the depth and structure for cellaring."
