WINEMAKER'S NOTES:

In 2016, Mills Vineyard yielded a robust and expressive Pinot Noir that marries lovely dark berry layers of black currant and raspberry, with sophisticated notes of black tea, mushrooms, and moist earth. On the palate, smooth, flowing tannins accentuate the rich fruit, while adding to a lush, concentrated finish.

TASTING NOTES:

In a southeast-facing set of limestone hills, Mills Vineyard often yields warm and spicy fruit. In 2016 it grew a savory, generous pinot, the fruit cradled in scents of creosote and bay laurel, oak and spice, and draped in fine tannins; for pheasant.

- Wine & Spirits, 94 pts. 

Grown on limestone soil at an elevation of 2,200 feet, this wine exudes a mesmerizing nose of Chinese five spice and tea leaves. An underscore of wet stone melds with the luscious notes of cherry, rose, and cinnamon.

- Tasting Panel, 94 pts. 

Wild cherry, thyme, sagebrush and light bay leaf aromas converge on the nose of this bottling, which is relatively mellow to start but opens considerable with patience. Roasted cherry, cherry-pit and juniper flavors align on the palate, which is full-throttle in flavor and structure. Drink 2021–2036. Cellar Selection
