Medium-bodied, intensely fruited and tightly wound, the palate is taut, muscular and lively with bags of energy down to the long, perfumed finish.

The palate is seamlessly delivered with pristine red cherries and a smoothly layered texture that has been expertly crafted. Stunning Sonoma Coast pinot. Drink or hold.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93: Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir El Diablo Vineyard opens with black raspberries, black cherries and violets on the nose with hints of chocolate box and cinnamon stick.
