This was a sneaky ghosted wedding gift. Pretty nose with ripe cherries, candied plums, pork loin, earl gray tea, potpourri, dark chocolate shavings, graphite, and ash. Mid-palate is juicy, fleshy and bright. The finish shows creamy red fruits centered in minerality and earth. You can grab this at $19.99, which is a steal for a quality Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir.

I’m not usually one for California Pinots, but this one is top notch. A lot of things I like out of Oregon wines with plenty of earth and body to boot￼￼ — 10 days ago

Light and spicy for this producer. — 17 days ago
There is a deceptively light richness about this wine - silky, full body but still very elegant. Good acidity for a rousanne with lemon zest, dry honey, quince and pear plus a lovely herbal quality that keeps it well balanced with both depth and finesse. It closes on a long finish with a saline mineral note. — 17 days ago
Overall, this presents clean and laser-focused. Minerality such as rocks and stones frame what is a textbook Montrachet clone. Citrus fruits are front and center in this example - a super effort from Cali.
Thanks again to @Paul T- Huntington Beach for a great reco! — a month ago
