Wine AdvocateThe production of the 2014 Pinot Noirs ranges from a low of 543 cases for the Clos du Ciel to a high of 1,227 cases for the Ma Danseuse. All of these Pinot Noirs are made from what is simply called a Vosne-Romanée clone, which is code, I expect, for a vineyard such as Romanée-Conti or La Tâche, but no one's talking. The 2014 Pinot Noir Ma Danseuse is from the coldest of the three Sonoma Coast sites that are now part of the Ft. Ross-Seaview AVA and is their largest production cuvée. Plenty of forest floor, raspberry, black cherry and floral notes are present in this wine, which has seemingly put on a lot of weight and texture since I had it last year. This comes from a 1,000- to 1,300-foot elevation and the resulting Pinot is Burgundian, classic, rich and capable of lasting 15 or more years, possibly longer.

Wine SpectatorNo denying the density and depth of this red, yet the delivery is rustic and chewy, with edgy tannins whose rawness and dryness right now are the major concerns. Drink now through 2010. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,180 cases made.
