This blend was created as a study in harmony. This wine’s initial scents of ripe red berries and plums hint at the palate’s potential richness. And yet the wine isn’t so much rich as mouthfi lling. A saturating and juicy presence that mimics richness, this bursts with exuberant fruit on the fi nish, then quietly recedes. This wine feels in every sense complete - calm and placid, with a succulence gently occupying every corner of the mouth.

Medium ruby-purple, the 2017 Pinot Noir Last Chapter opens with this cuvée’s signature reductive notes of tar and woodsmoke, with time giving up crushed red and black cherries, loamy earth, tobacco leaves and desiccated rose petals. It’s medium-bodied and silky with very pretty, bitters-laced fruits in the mouth. It has a firm, fine-grained frame and fantastic freshness on the finish.

Precise and refined, with cherry and pomegranate flavors that blend with dusky spice and dried herb notes, building tension toward fine-grained tannins. Best from 2021 through 2027. 500 cases made
