Dark boysenberry, dried purple flowers, wet slate and a touch of bay leaf show on the nose of this thick and earthy bottling by the tech moguls T.J. and Valeta Rodgers. The mouthfeel is very chalky, and there is the winery's characteristic earthiness along with mocha and baking spice. But there are also brighter berry flavors, perhaps due to the sunnier slopes.

The richness amplifies the weighty, generous, muscular berry pie mix of flavors, making for an assertive and potent Pinot that isn't shy about flexing its muscles. Ends with a chewy mix of earth and fruit. This may always be a bit tannic. Drink now through 2024. 126 cases made.  JL (8/2017)
