This is the Central Coast, “Vicarious” Pinot from Modus Operandi- and it behaves nothing like what one’s expectations may be for such a thing. I’d love to hear about some of the vineyards because this Pinot, for its price, personality & value brings it. Delightful notes of spice box on the nose that leads directly to a welcome and syrupy palate of rich cherry, boysenberry and even some smoke towards the finish. I paid, with my own money to pick up six bottles of this debut effort of the Vicarious brand that was sourced from what must be some of the best vineyards for Pinot in ALL of the “central coast”. This is some great juice.

Ripe dark fruits, medium tannin fill your cheap and leave your mouth warm and happy . Lovely deep hue. Love it — 2 days ago
Strawberry and hint of rosemary on the nose. Smooth mid palate. Great juice but not much potential here. — 10 days ago
Everything I want in a hopped cider. Such a fan of this producer. I highly recommend a trip to their farm in Jersey. — 3 hours ago
This balanced, spice-tinged Pinot Noir offers sappy red fruit and floral character, with a spine of juicy acidity keeping things lively. A bit of air stretches it out and brings up a hint of musky earth. Finding delicious Pinot in the SLH is easy, but real values are far harder to come by. $24.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, September 2020) — 21 days ago
