Wonderful full body Pinot, blackberries, great tannins, strong earth tones think it will soften over time going to give next bottle 6 months but taste wonderful wine!!! — 2 years ago
Alcoholic cherry butterfly bush smell, hibiscus, taste has a huge front kick of condensed syrupy flavor but not feel as chalk, tannins and acids kick it out, leaving it wet and chalky with a curious and interesting pungent clay that makes this quite drinkable given the strength, hotness and complexity, the ending is a swirling mouthwatering acid that just doesn’t want to go away but it’s fresh and has a tingle and is pleasant (not astringent) - like picture an acidic grape tendril — 4 years ago

Really interesting. Would not have guessed it was Pinot noir alone. Very dark. Chocolate and dark berry flavor profile predominates. — a year ago
Just translucent, reddish amber with a slightly off- white top evoking puffy clouds and sticky tendril lacing of carnivorous plants eventually arabesque. Light caramel malt smells overlay the lemon and pine, thyme and clementine-grapefruit. The extra touch of sweet malt rounds the citrus on the palate, and the grain shines briefly adumbrating the pine return. Pith of lime and grapefruit with a ginger sprinkle sustain the finish for a refreshing aftertaste with a ghost of basil. .
