- [ ] Fragrant nose. Distinct fresh plum notes kind of surprising for a pinot. Those notes along with musky dark flowers, Palo santo and sandalwood dominate, buttressed by a wet earth, wet leaves and petricore note, a whiff of Smokey mineralogy, an undercurrent of caraway seeded rye bread that is both delicious and opens pairing possibilities. . Soft and silky with plush resolved tannins and good medium acidity. Not transcendent by any means, but really and complex tasty for what it is and punching far above its weight. It is a bit hollow at some moments, but that comes off to me as ore petricore freshness than the or flabby. Drink up and enjoy. Not getting better but probably has a couple of years of reasonable drinking

I’d been jonesing to try the Martha Stoumen collection for a long time. I’ve read plenty on her background - her training under Occhipinti at Cos and I love her thoughtful articulation of California terroir, natural wine, and Sicilian grapes.
This is fun bright sunshine at a meager 10%. The smell of oysters mid slurp - briny ocean and minerals. Flavors of sour lemon drop.
Attentive and still easy. — a month ago
