Don't take yourself or your wine too seriously. CSW.
Probably a tough crowd for normal Costco drinkers since it isn’t a bombastic in-your-face jammy (Meiomi-esque) Pinot. Light and clean with chocolate raspberries, some cherry notes, high acidity. Not too funky but it’s a NZ pinot so it carries a little farmyard. I like it, especially for $9. — 2 days ago
Very happy to get my hands on a few of these - I love this wonderful winery and what they are doing. This Pinot is a lot of fun to dissect. Bright cherry notes, baking spice on the nose. I’m getting the usual flavors of Willamette here, but with a clean cola profile I was not expecting. Different and I like it. — 7 days ago
So as one is wont to do, I was in the mood for carignan. Introducing this new friend which is wildly expressive, deep, and harmonious on all fronts. Brilliant dark fruit on the nose accented with nutty scents. Lush and velvety, balanced tannins, complex and lingering. Great stuff! — 17 days ago
