Really dark garnet colored, and a swirl leaves some long legs behind. Aromas of dark cherry, plum and licorice. Dry with just the right amount of fruit that leaves you licking your lips. Finishes clean with a nice grip. In case you couldn’t tell I am a huge fan of this type of wine. — 10 days ago

Dark black fruit nose. Pours deep. Full bodied wine. Blackberry, boysenberry, herbs. Middle has black tea and black fruit with espresso bean. Power. Finishes with a fair amount of toasted tannin, dark fruit and some nutty character. Expressive, and seems like it could go another 15 years or so. 2012 and tastes like a 2015. — 10 days ago
Soy sauce, black peppercorn, green olive, cassis, and clove. Dark red fruits, mocha and earthy notes stand out on the palate. Well balanced, juicy, and soft. More of an old world feel. Very solid weeknight drinker. #garyveewineclub — 13 days ago

let's open this beautiful Pinot Noir from California.
Deep ruby in color with a short purple rim.
Beautiful nose of black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, dried figs, tobacco, spices, herbs, light vegetables, pencil lead, black pepper, chocolates, mocha, earth and dark coffee.
Full bodied, smooth and elegant with medium acidity and beautiful long legs.
Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, sweet plums, cherries, wood, cloves, light vegetables, pencil lead, peppercorn, leather, tobacco, chocolates and mocha.
Long finish with very soft tannins and tangy raspberries.
This Pinot Noir from the Wagner family is drinking so nicely now. This 4 year old is well balanced with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. Soft, velvety and delicious.
A Pinot Noir for the Cabernet lover. Fruit forward, rich and extracted, and might be too fruity for some.
Good right out of the bottle and didn't really change much, even after 2 hours of airtime.
I paired it with cheeses, dried fruits and light flatbreads.
Aged for 9 months in French oak barrels.
14.7% alcohol by volume.

One more update. I am convinced that the first bottle was bad but the second may have had a bit of bottle shock still. Might have been a bit quick on the trigger finger when I found. Yet again a different experience. Full bodied, lush, with deep black cherry and currant with chocolate ganache, menthol, and a smooth, peppery finish. Final verdict? Outstanding. — 9 days ago
A smooth, full bodied, and easy to drink. It has that surprising punch of a whisky but not offensive or aggressive as a whisky. — 9 days ago
