Review:

2010 Wine Advocate - 91 points - A complex array of pit fruit distillates, herbal essences, and nut oils captures the imagination through aromas that float from the glass of Ayoub's 2010 Pinot Noir Murto Vineyard and its palate performance follows in kind with a lithe, brightly juicy, piquant and tart-edged evocation of fresh dark fruits and its persistent aura of fruit and herb distillates. This finishes with striking cut, vivacity and penetration; a bit lean perhaps, but in a most handsome, lithe way. I expect it to be worth following for at least 6-8 year. - David Schildknecht

My favorite aromatics of the 4 wines, with succulently sweet fruit melding with sandalwood incense and clay. The palate carries a spectrum of flavors, from high-toned red cherries, to bursting marionberry middle, to a bottom note of cassis, all balanced by a citrusy acidity. I also love the structure - silky, with super-fine tannins hinting at the age-ability of this beauty. Only 90 cases made.

First year for Ayoub's Murto Vineyard Pinot noir and we hope there will be many more. 90 cases made.

The 2010 Murto Pinot Noir has gorgeous aromas of cherries, dried rose petals, tobacco, white pepper and wet clay. The lush palate has a medley of black cherries, currant and raspberries. A mix of exotic spices lingers on the bright, fine textured and very long finish. It will benefit from time in the cellar and has the potential to age for 12+ years.
