A selection from a higher and drier location with lower vigor, which delivers more profound phenolic development. The nose has striking mineral notes with oyster shell and a rich, dark-cherry and blueberry presence, as well as a lightly spicy edge. The palate has intensity with elegance. The tannins are handsomely defined and deliver a very long and mouthwatering, red-cherry, blood-orange and pomegranate finish. Drinkable now, but better from 2023.

This is sourced from the biodynamic estate vineyard, and it is a vivid synthesis of wild blackberry, mint, tarragon, anise and other spring herbs. Subtle, lengthy and detailed, it finishes with fine tannins and considerable length.

The 2016 Pinot Noir Mineral Springs Ranch is pale to medium ruby-purple in color with a youthfully reticent nose of pulverized stone, delicate blue flower, dried leaves, cola and black fruits. Light to medium-bodied and still tightly coiled in the mouth, with a strong vein of crushed rock minerality, it's just beginning to give up some ripe black fruits and spicy accents with firm, fine-grained tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing very long and minerally with lots of nerve. Give this a year or two in bottle or consider a decant
