Had this in a restaurant with some Sushi. Pale lemon with complex aromas of fresh citrus with herbal mineral notes. Orange & citrus flavors adding grapefruit & lemon tones, great acidity balance, rich & smooth, medium finish ending with grassy savory mineral character. Nice! — 4 days ago
Bolt to Wines Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2017, California
Dark purple in color with a purplish rim.
Strong nose of blueberries, plums, wood, licorice, alcohol, light vanilla, light barnyard, peppercorn, spices, earth, light vegetables, tobacco and chocolates.
Full bodied and soft with medium acidity and nice legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with black currants, sweet cherries, vanilla, earth, wood, spices, vegetables, herbs, peppercorn, chocolates and tobacco.
Medium finish with soft tannins, peppercorn and cherries.
This is a nice surprise. A very tasty Pinot Noir from Santa Rita Hills in California. Not really drinking like a Pinot Noir, though. Drinks more like a Washington Syrah.
Easy drinking with a nice mouthfeel, and a spicy and tangy finish. Nicely balanced with nice complexity.
Good by itself as a sipping wine. A Pinot Noir not for the Pinot Noir drinker. Very unique.
Much better after 2 hours of airtime, although good right out of the bottle.
Made with 100% Pinot Noir grapes.
14.7% alcohol by volume.

(The night before). Mr. Reliable. Like a favorite pair of jeans — it can work most every time. Pulled this last night without much thought because there was a Cab drinker in the mix. By itself this would have scored higher, but with the others it seemed out of place. (Lack of decanting may have also been a factor). Will have to revisit with another bottle. — 9 days ago
A decent bottle of cab. Amir really likes it. — 8 days ago
Ruby red, lightly to moderately extracted pigment, excellent clarity. Earthy, slightly funky nose initially. Hint of raspberry, good initial acidity, some seed bitterness on finish with length. Needs time to open but well structured wine. Cherry flavor and light-to-moderate skin astringency emerge after 30 minutes. Barnyard stink blows off after two hours. Worth the wait. — 5 days ago
Excellent cab with dark complex layers that open up across the palette, yielding a myriad of enjoyable flavors. Seems to evolve as you drink a glass. It finishes with slightly bitter coffee notes that are divine. — 3 days ago
Crisp yet rich, with ripe pear, toasted almonds, and a note of minerality — 2 days ago
