93 points from the Wine Spectator, and 92 from the Wine Advocate, the extremely limited production Signature Pinot Noir is complex and full of dark fruit, but without weight. Enjoy into 2023.
2008 Pinot Noir SIGNATURE
Carefully had selected for complexity, beauty and overall high quality, the Signature represents the most elite six barrels of wine produced using our estate fruit. The Revana Vineyard is embraced for its soil diversity and exudes intricacies usually experienced from older vineyards. Initally light floral tones waft from the glass, mingling into a melange of black fruits, wet coffee grounds, soil and a kiss of mocha. Electric and gripping as it explodes mid-palate with earth and minerality but without weight, the Signarure is complex and pretty, eternally lingering. Only 140 cases produced.
Tasting notes from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Pinot Noir Signature is a selection of the top 6 barrels from the Revana Estate Vineyard aged for 9 months in 35% new oak. It displays a similar aromatic and flavor profile to the Dundee Hills cuvee but with greater volume and intensity of fruit, more structure, and additional aging potential. This impeccably balanced offering will benefit from another 3-4 years of cellaring and have a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2023. 92 points - Dr. Jay Miller
Tasting notes from the Wine Spectator
Light and fragrant, brimming with cherry, raspberry, orange peel and spice aromas and flavors. An elegant wine that remains supple and inviting as the finish sails on and on. Drink now through 2018. 93 points - Harvey Steiman
