This is an easy drinking Pinot Noir from California. Showing mild complexity with a nice mouthfeel, and a little spicy on the finish.
Good right out of the bottle and shows more structure after 20 minutes of airtime.
A nice wine to pair with food or drink by the porch.
I gave it a light chill and had it with cheeses.
13.8% alcohol by volume.

Quite gd. Love to understand the background of different owners as mentioned by Eric Asimov NYT 5/2020. The garagiste has some connection. Anyone know? — 2 months ago
It’s dark. Black-purple. Slightly edged in red. Nose is heady. Stewed fruits and dark unsweetened chocolate. Moss. Wet moss in there too. And some herbal extract. Not sure which. Flavor is rich. Slightly ‘sweet’ or fruity. Dark, ripe stone fruits. Plenty of acid cuts through though. Not stain the teeth and dry the tongue tannic as some Petite Sirah tends towards. There’s a smokey, savory element in there too. This is great. A big red, but one with elegance and style. — 8 days ago
