Wine Reviews

Quartz Reef Pinot Noir 2013

92+

Medium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2013 Pinot Noir has an expressive nose of ripe black and red cherries, mulberries and currants with nuances of cedar, underbrush, cloves and rose petals. Medium bodied with firm, grainy tannins and just enough acid framing the muscular fruit, it finishes long and earthy.
