The body is full, round, waxy and lush.

Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2017

Excellent QPR. Tart cherries, deep, but bright and clean with very nice complexity for an appellation wine. In my book, this rivals and possibly surpasses the Rivers Marie Sonoma Coast Pinot. — a month ago

17yrs in and I am fairly surprised at how elegant this is. I loved the nose on this. Blood orange, crunchy cranberry and old black cherry, with beautiful baking spices. It’s still retaining good acidity, showing cedar, red and black fruits and herbal twang on the palate. Slightly clipped finish, but it’s 17yrs old! Wonderful for its age. Thanks @Dan Fitzgerald . — 3 days ago

McDougall Ranch Pinot Noir 2012

Ripe, rich but still light in its feet. Smoke, spice and black cherry notes with laudable acid/fruit balance. Smooth, silken finish with absolutely no sharp notes. Wonderful with cherry lacquered pork belly with crunchy skin and heirloom cranberry beans. — 5 days ago

Littorai

Thieriot Vineyard Pinot Noir 2007

Bottle 1 of 2 elegant coastal PNs provided by our gracious hosts on Diamond Mountain. Mini 2007 horizontal. Cherry and cranberry still very fresh and lively, but there was a great mushroom earthiness as well, and sweet florals toward the finish. Total balance throughout. — 11 days ago

Ritchie Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

Opulent nose of ripe apple, lemon curd and prominent oak. The palate surprisingly has great finesse and balance, given the sheer power of the aromas. Long finish. Definitely high octane CA Chardonnay, but delicious nonetheless. — 13 days ago
