Wine tasting notes

The spice and earth notes combine with dark berry and wild flowers and this deep, resonant Pinot Noir. There is a concentration here, though not at the sacrifice of deftness as polished dark earth notes mingle with sweet black berries. The finish betrays that Bearwallow sting that the vineyard is known for, this fascinating textural peacocks tail that gives a piquantly mineral shape to the finish.

Expert reviews

Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2016) - 93 pts

The 2016 Pinot Noir Bearwallow Vineyard Porcupine Hill offers terrific depth and textural resonance in its dark cherry and plum fruit. Today, the difference between the two Bearwallow Pinots is not large. The Porcupine Hill offers a bit more depth and overall structure than the straight Porcupine Hill.
