This is a lovely wine that pairs well with a spinach risotto. My spouse describes it "as light but not wimpy." We are going to buy more bottles. — 6 days ago
Seems to me a little more approachable than other vintages I remember in the last few years. Nice robust sweet mountain fruit with blackberry, blueberry, dark chocolate, a hint of vanilla, pencil shavings, and sweet oak hits hard on the front both in the nose and on the palate. This bottle had about a 30 to 45 minute decant, and I think it was really all that it needed. It did develop a bit through the next hour, but the bottle really didn't last much longer than that! Toasted oak tannin finish with ripe and youthful blackberry, chocolate, blueberry notes. Incredible structure, and will last a good solid 15 years. — 25 days ago

Sweet! But not overpowering sweetness, 2014 — 8 days ago
2014 opened Oct 2020. Hilliard Bruce was my favorite of the Santa Rita hills Pinot producers. I got an email a while back that they went out of business. So sad.
IMHO the vineyard from which they sourced the grapes for The Moon produced some of the most complex and luscious Pinots in the Santa Rita Hills. Well, here’s my review of a wine we’ll see no more of.
Raspberries and sage on the nose. Lots of bouncy high notes plus a delicate tannic structure that starts on the front of the tongue and that carries through to the mid palate. More of the raspberry fruit comes out on the mid-palate — almost a Crème de Framboise intensity — but it’s offset by slightly smokey finish. Please don’t take any of these descriptors is being negative, because they all work together. This wine has a wonderful balance. Not as fantastic as a 2009 Moon, but this is a worthy vintage indeed. — 15 days ago
Sweet, not too bubbly. Enjoyed it a lot. Comparable to Be Lovely Late Harvest Riesling. — 11 days ago
At almost 4000$ a bottle even a 1/4 of a ounce is amazing. I'm at a lose for words to describe it. It was magic on a dark night. It was a kiss under a street light in the rain it was amazing — 21 days ago
I love the sweet blueberry and grape mixture. One of my favorite blueberry based wines. "It taste so good when it hits the lips" 🍇 🍷 — 5 days ago
