91 POINTS: ROBERT PARKER’S WINE ADVOCATE - The 2015 Pinot Noir Los Alamos Vineyard has a pale garnet color and a classic nose of woodsmoke, cranberries, Bing cherries, tree bark, dried citrus peel, pipe tobacco and dusty earth. In the mouth, it’s light-bodied and delicate with finely grained tannins and juicy freshness, finishing long and amaro-tinged.

MISSION NOTES: Before you dive into the Pinot Noir, it’s important to know this wine has been in the bottle for six years now and is evolving into the secondary state of its existence. For me that’s a HUGE bonus, but if you don’t like older wines, especially Pinot Noir, that flavor profile could come as quite a surprise. The juicy, soft berries are almost just a whisper, replaced by dried leaves, a bit of burnt earth, and a savory sauvage character that I look for in my favorite red Burgundy. I can't get enough of it. -David Driscoll, Mission Sales Manager
