94 points and one of the Top 50 US Pinots in Wine & Spirits Magazine
North is one of Temperance Hill’s high-elevation parcels, an exposed site rising to 850 feet, yielding a wine of exceptional tension and firm structure. It starts off opaque, with dusty scents of strawberry leather and tobacco leaf. After a day, the flavors become sleek and elegant; there’s surprising concentration to the plum and strawberry fruit, with an herbal savor and earthy plum-skin tannins. It’s got the stuff to cellar.
