The site of a portion of the original John F. Abbott Donation Land Claim awarded on May 27, 1860. This 16-acre vineyard was planted in 2001 with Pinot Noir clones: Pommard, 777 and 115, on ancient Marine Sedimentary soils that were once ancient ocean bed. This wine is lush and plush, displaying rich fruit and deeply intense color with complex savory truffle notes. Flavors of red current, cherry cola, ripe raspberry, sweet pipe tobacco, rose petal make this a more collegiate compliment to our Angela Estate Pinot Noir.

Wine EnthusiastEditors' Choice. Here is a powerful young wine with concentrated plum and cherry fruit. It's beautifully built around perfectly ripened tannins that provide solid support without being intrusive. Compact and well proportioned, it lingers with highlights of espresso grounds, dark chocolate and black tea.

Wine SpectatorThis earthy style plays a woodsy, coffee and spice character against a core of black cherry, lingonberry and licorice flavors. The finish lingers against firm yet unobtrusive tannins. Best from 2017 through 2022. 1,300 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Pinot Noir "Abbott Claim" has a lifted bouquet of red berries, beetroot, cola and rose petals that offers a satisfying sense of complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly rustic tannin, but plenty of tertiary red berry fruit mingling with cola and tobacco notes that almost lend it a Merlot-like finish. I appreciate the fact that this has "personality."
