Nose is beautiful with some dark florals, bing cherry, fresh strawberry, and some herbaceousness. Palate is light off the bat with fresh acidity and tart cherry notes.. Over time in the glass it gets rounder and more enjoyable and scents of cardamom, white pepper, and rhubarb emerge.. Needs time and food.

A solid #pinotnoir from #santabarbara - balanced, refined, with spice, red fruits, and nice acid.

Red fruits and a hint of dried mushrooms.

Finishing off our north to south Pinot tasting with this one. Decent, enjoyable, middle of the road for me.

Beautiful color in the glass, in your face red fruit pomegranate, cherry, cranberry, org zest, and black tea, this is good stuff, like to see with a little age

Visual: Brillante y translucido, color granate, disco mediano, lagrimas ligeras.

Nariz: aromas a cereza, frambuesa y algo de arándano. Predomina la fruta, pero tiene algunas características de Borgoña.

Boca: fruta perceptible pero buen balance. Acido M, taninos M-, volumen M. Me parece que esta en un buen momento para tomar.

Buen valor.

Wow. I really like this. Talk about easy to drink. It's earthy, floral, and slightly acidic. At $23, I think I may have found a new favorite Pinot that doesn't break the wallet.
