Deep in color, this Pinot shows off its signature aroma composed of cherry, dark berry, cassis, plum, blueberry preserve and cola. This initial expression is generously layered with milk chocolate, toffee and vanilla. Star anise, coffee, savory morel mushroom and a bit of fresh earth build even more complexity. On the palate, the entry is soft and lush, with mouthwatering acidity and tart red cherry on the long finish. The tannins are firm and almost chewy -- classic Flax, through and through. As always, this wine will blossom with long-term aging and so is a worthwhile addition to the cellar of the patient collector.

This is a Westside Road site known for its rocky soils, and the wine presents sassafras, cherry-berry and roses on the entry before laying down a tightly woven mix of sour, salty cranberry and blood orange. It is softly voluptuous and velvety, though young, with a biting chewiness that should mellow in the cellar. Drink now through 2028.

Weaves a complex mix of ripe wild berry, plum, savory herb and black tea notes, a bit raw and edgy midpalate but with enough depth and persistence to sustain the flavors. Drink now. 400 cases made.
