Cultivated on Anderson Valley's high eastern ridge, this remote vineyard is full of chunky, broken rock pieces in thin soil. Pinot Noir vines strain to cling to the steep faces along the ridgelines, yet produce deep, profoundly complex and age-worthy wines. Wild strawberry jam aromatics with smoky, briary and raspberry flavors, finished with a burst of blueberry.

Wine Profile

ratings

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 93 Points

There are nearly 3,000 cases of the 2012 Pinot Noir Jackson Estate Outland Ridge. Made from Dijon clones 828, 667 and 777, this beauty moves toward Pinot Noir’s blue fruit spectrum, displaying notes of blueberries and raspberries. It was aged in equal parts new French, old French and old American oak. A terrific wine offered at a reasonable price, this supple, velvety textured Pinot should drink well for 4-6 years.

Wine Enthusiast - 91 Points

This substantive Pinot shows definite toasted oak character along with ripe fruit, full body and firm tannins. Hints of oak smoke and caramel waft over the ripe plum aromas. The flavors go to dark cherries and coffee, the texture is attractively astringent from tannins, and the finish carries a little bite. Well done but not overdone.
