"An estate Adam has worked with since 2000, the 2016 Pinot Noir Clos Pepe Vineyard saw 35% stems and roughly 40% new oak. Bing cherries, strawberries, rose petals, and spice all emerge from this complex, elegant, layered beauty that has fine, fine tannin. This beauty has a vibrant, perfumed character and is another beautiful wine."
-94pts, Jeb Dunnuck
Wine Spectator: 92
Densely packed, featuring red currant, cherry and spice flavors that are supported by medium-grained tannins. Offers lush spiciness midpalate, with a vibrant and minerally finish that lingers with Asian spice notes. Drink now through 2022.

Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir Clos Pepe Vineyard opens with black licorice and peppercorn hints over a core of crushed blueberries and black cherries, warm blackberries, turned earth and a lilac hint. Light to medium-bodied with luscious black and blue fruits in the mouth, it's framed by soft baking spice, firm, grainy tannins and mouthwatering acidity, finishing long on an earthy note. 503 cases produced.

Red-cherry compote, star anise, red licorice and a hint of vanilla show on the nose of this bottling from one of Adam Lee's longtime sources in the region. The palate offers rusty and earth flavors of baked cherry, but is quite snappy and crisp, enhanced by oregano, pepper and dried flowers.
