Red fruit-driven, leaner vintage, some bitter stemmy tannins, rocky limestone terroir and tastes like it. Disjointed, needs time.

2014. Combination of red fruit, dusty stones, and savory herbs. Lean, with electric acid and a silky texture. Medium finish. Just fine tonight with grilled chicken breasts slathered in pesto.

A delightful change of pace from all the good California pinot we’ve had lately. Damp and earthy and youthful. Red fruit, and tannins that are a bit clumsy at this early point. Firm acids lead into a slightly smokey and savory finish. Can’t wait to see it again in a few years.

A very good Burgundy. Smooth medium body with some earthiness as well. Darker red fruits like black plum and maybe blackberries. Low acidity.

Bitter, not my favorite, but a little better with time.
