Red cherry in color, this wine is reminiscent of the 2008 Silice. This is a lovely vintage for this perennial spicy, floral and sweet Pinot Noir. It has an aromatic bouquet boasting of sea breeze salinity, Christmas baking and potpourri spices of clove, cinnamon, ginger, anise and pepper. There are floral and herbal notes of roses and wildflowers, as well as a sweet mushroom meatiness and some stem spiciness. The Silice Pinot Noir is always youthfully structured, but the 2018 is suave, seamless and glides over the palate in a swath of ripe, sweet and dark fruit expressions.

Supple, richly textured and elegantly complex, this Pinot opens with a burst of fresh raspberry, then unfolds with notes of forest floor and brown baking spices, plus a touch of licorice as it builds tension toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2032

Translucent ruby-red. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes candied cherry, raspberry, allspice and succulent herbs, and a sexy floral note emerges as the wine stretches out. Concentrated red fruit and floral pastille flavors are supported by a spine of juicy acidity and sharpened by an emerging mineral nuance. Smoothly marries power to finesse and finishes with strong, gently tannic persistence and lingering floral and spice notes. 10% new oak.

Highlighted with scents of sweet baking spices and milk chocolate, this brings ripe red-berry fruit along with drying minerals. The flavors dive deeply down through the palate, and the mineral-soaked finish lingers in the throat a long time. Give this another year or two of bottle age for a better drinking window.

The 2018 Pinot Noir Silice Vineyard has broody aromas of tar and dark fruits on the nose with touches of dried herbs and flowers. The medium-bodied palate is firm and fresh, its dark fruits still youthfully coiled. Give it a couple years in bottle.
