Nose of pear, green apple, sea breeze, and some distant caramel and butterscotch.
Palate of green apple, lemon, supported buy sweet oak and butterscotch. Med-med+ acidity. Clean finish.
Quite a fresh wine with subtle, well integrated oak. Delicious as a starter and with lighter fare. — 6 months ago
Charged aromas of strawberry preserves and vanilla cola that quickly stand aside to reveal nuanced flavors of lavender Earl Gray tea, menthol, sage, green tobacco, baking spices, and brown sugar. Cranberry sauce on the palatte. Stellar finish. Definitely one of the more complex Central Coast Pinot Noirs I've had. — 4 months ago

Ruby with red fruit aromas and spicy herb floral notes, aged for 14 months in 35% new French oak. On the palate black raspberry and cherry flavors with herb tea and earthy tones. Firm grainy tannins, balanced acidity, nice mouthfeel, pleasant finish ending with earthy mineral character. Nice! — 5 months ago
Celebrating a new president tonight with a wine that shares a name with an old one. Though I’m drinking it a bit young, it is still as complex as I could want. Medium and well balanced acidity, tannins and alcohol. Delicious cherry and currant, but also some earthiness and leather. I can’t wait to get another 2018 to try in a couple years. Very impressed. Paired with a poultry stew and tiramisu. — 8 months ago
