Intensely wrapped blackberry, briar, caraway and crème de cassis jump from this 2014 de Villiers vineyard Pinot Noir. Beautiful mouth-filling rich dark fruit flavors complement the broad, deep, taut, tart structure. This wine is complex, tight and nervy with a large personality and lots of flavor.

Wine EnthusiastVery dark in the glass, this drought-hammered bottling (from a yield of just two-thirds of a ton per acre!) shows deep and concentrated black plum, black currant and licorice aromas but retains the wild thyme and dark mint character typical of Central Coast Pinot Noir. The palate combines richness with strong acidity, its concentrated black cherry fruit cut with tart plum skin notes.
