Kelley Fox, who also makes the Scott Paul wines, has a deceptively delicate touch with her Pinots. They may seem light and herbal at first, but on further examination there is plenty of fruit, and it's sufficiently ripe, just not jammy. Pure expression of the site, along with somewhat wild fruit and herb flavors, are the hallmark. The flavors of bright berry and spice enter gracefully and linger through the long finish.
