Dierberg's Drum Canyon Vineyard Pinot has consistently earned top praise from the critics, with the last four vintages each earning multiple 90+ Point ratings. But we’ve got to say that the 2016 may just be the best vintage yet, exuding unmatched depth and complexity. This gorgeous wine is brimming with perfumed aromas of rose petal, red plum, crushed berries, and dried herbs, all of which are accented on the palate by notes of exotic spice, earth, and smoke. It captures all the subtle nuances of terroir-driven Pinot Noir, and with a mere 1700 cases produced, this hard-to-find offering is a must-have for any wine aficionado. 

“This bottling from a vineyard in the heart of the Sta. Rita Hills begins with aromas of earthy soils, dried herbs and bright Bing cherries. The palate's dark red, almost boysenberry fruit tones are both crisp and ripe, wrapped in a rocky, earthy tension that's mouthfilling and bright, finishing on a hint of French toast.” – 93 Points, Wine Enthusiast

“From a site in the Sta. Rita Hills, the 2016 Pinot Noir Drum Canyon Vineyard saw the standard 75% destemming and 10 months in 25% new French oak. It's similarly ruby/purple-hued and offers a feminine perfume of sweet strawberry and raspberry fruits intermixed with spring flowers, underbrush, and subtly salty, marine-like nuances. Rounded, supple, and elegant on the palate, it's already drinking beautifully yet is going to keep for at least 7-8 years.” – 93 Points, Jeb Dunnuck

“The 2016 Pinot Noir Drum Canyon Vineyard, made with 25% whole cluster and aged 16 months in 35% new French oak, is pale to medium ruby and youthfully reticent, very slowly revealing Bing cherries, cranberry, woodsmoke, earth, moss-covered bark, underbrush and wild blackberries. Medium-bodied, it offers intense flavor layers with lots of earthy nuance, a sturdy frame of grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long.” – 92 Points, Wine Advocate
