This is a very nice and easy drinking Pinot Noir from Carneros.
Showing red and black fruits with oak, licorice, light vanilla, tobacco, chocolates, coffee and peppercorn.
Medium bodied with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate, soft and smooth. Fruit forward and fresh.
Good right out of the bottle and good by itself or with food. I gave it a light chill and paired it with light appetizers.
13.8% alcohol by volume.

This is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Elegant and fruit forward.
This Single Vineyard is still young, but already approachable. A nice wine with good potential. Would be nice to revisit it in 5 years.
Good right out of the bottle, and better after 3 hours of airtime.
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with cheeses, olives and crackers.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were grown at 2,000 feet of elevation. Aged in French oak barrels for 22 months. Unfiltered and unfined.
14.6% alcohol by volume.

This is unexpectedly nice. Paid $36 and this is well worth it. Young but well integrated already. Nice dark fruits and vanilla flavors. Really glad I bought this — 4 months ago
