Classic raspberry bramble of a nose.

Light to medium bodied - strawberry jam, a touch of green tea and sarsaparilla. The well integrated acid rear up, and sings it’s way through till the end.
This is a classic wine house, and although it leans a little to the hotel side of the wine world, it’s worth to let sit for a couple of years, and blow off some of that over reaching Cali flavor.

Not bad but not amazing. I think a bit too young. Still some tannin and not a lot of complexity but dark fruit - plum and cherry - and fairly easy drinking.

Color of dark burgundy, with a bit purple tone, and a bit cloudy. Nose of concentrated aldehyde, dried strawberry, nice vanilla, milky chocolate, a bit tobacco leaves, ripe cherry. Nose is fragrant and keeps coming. Taste follows the nose with addition of oak, zest, ripe grapes, refined sweetness, and silky. Almost no tannins. Aftertaste is mellow with some more peppery and minty note, and warmth from alcohol, and some more ripe grapes. Non conventional Pinot Noir yet beautiful.

Classic California pinot. Juicy red fruit, oak, and enough earth to balance the fruit out. Well done for the $30 price point

Well balanced cali style pinot. Slightly fruit forward but not overly done. Silky smooth, very good for the money. This would please just about anyone.

Earthy with plum on the nose. Medium bodied with a slight bitterness on the finish. Quite a bit of tartrates at the bottom of the glass.
