The wine is very dark toned and penetrating with a thread of electric liveliness
pulsating throughout. Itís a rich wine, but not too broad or dense and has many layers of complex aromas and flavors flitting in and out all the time. Deep rose color, quite dark & brilliant. Complex floral/herbal aromas: juniper, bay leaf, anise then wild berry sweetness, kirsch, sassafras and tobacco. Great power and dimension to the palate. Rich, but never soft - a lean dynamic power. Boysenberry, maple, cocoa then mint and game. Fine tannin-acid balancing act. Fresh orange zest on the finish.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP):
"The 2010 Pinot Noir Ryan Widdoes Vineyard has a certain heaviness to it that I personally find less interesting than some of the other wines in the range. The fruit is boisterous and rich...."
