To the eye, a lucid crimson sits in the glass. Aromatics of ripe cranberries, forest floor, morels and a touch of bramble engage. The wine slips onto the palate with a silky, enveloping entry of pure juice and ripe cherry with layers evolving while breathing. Incredibly balanced and riveting, the wine closes with concentration and finesse-an exemplar of drinkability.

This new wine from David Phinney (creator of the famous/infamous brand, The Prisoner) was aged for nine months in oak barrels, 70% new. Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2017 Pinot Noir Sleeping Hollow Vineyard soars out of the glass with intense notes of Bing cherries, fresh raspberries and cranberries with touches of Provence herbs, lavender and forest floor with a waft of roses. Full-bodied, the palate quivers with energy, delivering layers of red berries and fragrant herbs with a firm, grainy frame, finishing and savory. This one seems to need 2-3 years to really spring into action and should easily cellar for a good 10-12 years. 500 cases were made.
