2019 Runestone Pinot Noir - 95pts Wine Enthusiast

95 Points, Cellar Selection - Wine Enthusiast

When we decided some thirty years ago to produce our first “reserve” Pinot Noir, our mission was to create a hallmark wine by selecting the very best barrels in the cellar. Soon this “barrel-select” Pinot Noir was christened “Runestone”, and to this day it represents all we love about Pinot Noir in its highest form.

To do this, our winemaking team has the (“arduous”) job of sampling and grading every barrel of Pinot Noir in the cellar in order to decide which eight-barrel blend best represents the essence of “Runestone.”  This 2019 Runestone rewards the nose with intriguing aromas of rhubarb, cloves and anise, leading to notes of sweet tobacco, sherry and red berry compote. A burst of red fruit is flattered by a backdrop of quality new French oak. This 2019 Runestone is ready to enjoy now, but guaranteed to age beautifully over the next six to eight years.
