Really dig this Pinot Noir. Perfectly balanced either fruit but not sickly sweet. Nice (and no I’m not a wine expert, but do enjoy good stuff!) — 18 days ago

An excellent SLH Pinot. Dark garnet in color, 14.7% ABV yet perfectly integrated. Sierra Mar is one of my favorite SLH vineyards and ROAR knows how to get the best expression fr these berries. Easily good for 3-5 years, perhaps more - has the tannins to go long. Let’s all get along. Cheers! — a year ago
Good stuff if only a bit too one dimensional. Cherries, pomegranate, brown sugar, bergamot, ripe blackberries. Medium+ finish. — a month ago
‘Las Alturas' Spanish for 'the heights', a fitting name, this vineyard located on one of the highest grape-growing benches in the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. 4th gen Winemaker Joseph J. Wagner from family with farming & winemaking roots in Napa since 1906. Met Joe several times. Deep Ruby (darkest Pinot I have come across). Nice berry and floral spice aromas. Rich cherry/plum flavors with oak, spice and vanilla. Long finish ending with sweet oak notes. Nice! A Fav! — 10 months ago
Lucienne Doctors Vineyard is one of the finest Pinot Noir‘s available in California today. It is medium bodied with a bright acidity as you would expect, but Lucienne also brings and earthy spice, with warm vanilla.
No matter how many times I have this wine I always enjoy it. — a month ago
18’ Miner Rosella’s Pinot . Color resembles a ruby/purple. Nose fresh picked strawberries, cranberry, brown sugar mist. Opened it over a week ago and threw the cork on it. Still a full -bodied beast of a Pinot. Strong cherry, red berry flavors to it, sassafras, slightly non-expressive finish. Can’t miss if you’re patient for another year or two. One of if not the best thing I’ve enjoyed from Miner. Cheers! Wait another 2/3 years / decanting for 2 hours +. — 8 months ago
