The 2018 growing season was mild and even, allowing for a later harvest than we had the previous three seasons. The resulting wine possesses a deep purple-garnet hue and promising perfume that foretells a long future. Aromas of roses, red cherries, blackberries and raspberries combine with wet stone, forest floor, a scattering of baking spices and a dusting of cocoa. Mouthwatering acidity and plush tannins create an elegant, graceful balance that belies this wine's youth.

Juicy with brawny black fruit, this wine offers soft, supple tannins that support fleshy ongoing richness on the midpalate. Varietally satisfying and expressive in velvety texture, it finishes in baking spice and a depth of earth.

The 2018 Pinot Noir Olivet Lane is all restraint. Blood orange, red berry fruit, mint, rose petal and star anise all give the Olivet Lane a very pretty aromatic top register. Medium in body and understated, the Olivet Lane is finely sculpted, vivid and exceptionally polished. It is also less expressive today than most of the wines in the lineup. I would prefer to give it a bit of aeration.

Medium ruby, the 2018 Pinot Noir Olivet Lane has a nose of cranberry jelly and rhubarb with accents of blood orange, tea leaves, woodsmoke and forest floor. Medium-bodied and silky, it has a good core of bright fruit with seamless freshness and a long finish. 695 cases produced.

Well-sculpted, with good cut to the ripe berry, dark plum and currant flavors, which are concentrated and feature rich spiciness. Chocolate nib and savory accents show on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 695 cases made.
