The 2003 vintage was the last of the vintages in which we were purposefully trying to make the biggest Pinots possible. The wines are super concentrated and lush - but don't have much acid. As such, they're not candidates for aging. In fact, as they have aged, they have started to fall apart. We're also seeing that some of the synthetic corks we used have caused the wines to get oxydized. If you open a bottle and feel it's off, please contact us and we'll either get you a replacement (from the current release) or refund your purchase price. If you're on our mailing list, you can claim credit on the next release.
The theme for the 2003 labels is "Vineyard Family Portrait". We asked each grower to supply me with a family photo that they'd like to be used on the label. Hide this content.
