This is a very tasty Pinot Noir from Carneros. Showing cedar, ripe raspberries, licorice, light vanilla, blueberries, sweet cherries, chocolates, tobacco and peppercorn.
Easy drinking and dry on the palate with medium acidity.
Nicely balanced with a nice smooth mouthfeel. Fruit forward, spicy and interesting.
Good right out of the bottle and good by itself.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

Tasty red and blue fruits with a nice finish. Quite nice and would rate higher if not for its lack of structure, which makes it a drink now wine, despite its relative youth. Nice effort, but would like to see more depth of flavor, complexity and structure to support the prodigious fruit. — 6 days ago
Last ‘16, lost luster but still ok. Fruit for this Pinot comes from 2 of the coolest, most coastal parts of this appellation, linked by the influence of the Pacific’s cool marine air, which delays ripening. Ruby with berry fruit, citrus and floral spice. On the palate, strawberry and cherry with cedar notes and earthy tones. Balanced acidity, soft tannins, medium+ finish ending with tobacco and woody spice. Nice, drink now. — a day ago
Won this wine in a wine pull! Went really went with Greek marinated grilled chicken, grilled lemons, wild rice and cucumber salad. Balanced, lemony, lemon grass, not fizzy, touch of pepper and herbs- foods with lemon or herbs and this is a good choice!! — 5 days ago
