My reward for selling the rest of 2016 & 2017 today. Lean and hot upon opening. After an hour has finally blossomed with ripe candied red cherry fruit, good acid, and hints of spice on the finish. Very pleasant and deft handed; on the lighter side of SRH Pinot Noir.

Easily one of the best CA pinots I've ever had, especially in this price bracket. Light in color, long on flavor. Morello cherry, underbrush, strawberry twizzler, orange rind, a mineral vein, ethereal texture and the fluffiest tannins ever that just dash the tongue before fading seamlessly. There's some damp rose petal in here too. And cranberry. Biodynamically farmed, only 57 barrels, I'm a fan, shoulda got more.

Balanced flavor but, didn’t like the nose of this wine.
