Critic Review
Wine Enthusiast, Jim Gordon
"Wonderful and complex fruit and oak flavors mingle on a broad warm texture in this full-bodied, flavor-packed and well-balanced wine. Good depth and an attractive layering of black cherry, raspberry and grilled plum make it special."
92 Points | Owen Bargreen
"This Anderson Valley Pinot Noir opens with ripe strawberry, guava and shades of blood orange set on the nose. The palate is plush and decadent with ripe red fruits with shades of peat moss and guava purée dominating."
Magnum 93 Points

Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
Focused and elegant with luscious cherry fruit and
lifting acidity

Hillside Slopes
Southern exposure, cobbled clay loam soils and
rock outcroppings

Exceptional Appellation
Due to its proximity to cool, steady winds from
the Pacific Ocean

Deep purple garnet color, this wine has overflowing aromas of dried hibiscus flower and smoked paprika with hints of forest floor and mint. The palate is dense and rich, packed with flavors of sassafrass, wild blueberry compote, and baking spice. This wine is a full and intense expression of Pinot Noir, perfectly balanced with toasted oak and vibrant acidity on the lengthy finish.

  • Paprika
  • Sassafras
  • Blueberry Compote
  • Toasted Oak

Our 2017 Blue Jay is sourced on steep hillsides. The aspect and light gravelly soils in these very rugged sites combine to create optimal ripening conditions. The resulting wines consistently present fruit of great depth and character.
