My favorite Pinot at the moment.. What a great well-rounded wine. Plush body with a dark nose but smooth as velvet mouthfeel. Juicy but structured.. Like belle glos but better.

Bold and spicy, with a medium mouth feel (not as light as your typical Pinot). My namesake! $40 at the vineyard, bought 2!

Big, bold,highly extraced and concentrated, intense red and black fruits, full bodied with moderate grip and acidity, w/ medium plus length. Perhaps a little to big.

Dark fruit, smoke and velvety vanilla. Just enough fat and not more.

This was a gift from my bride for Christmas, a mid-range bottle along with a more expensive bottle.We really enjoyed this broad Pinot! Lots of different fruit flavors, that reveal themselves over the course of a sip and over the course of an evening. Dark bouquet that lead to a surprisingly diverse and complicated pallet , more like a cab than Pinot, and finished with a delightfully lingering and silky figgy-earthiness. We really did love this for a Pinot noir. Highly recommend!

Bold and loud for a Pinot noir - not an austere wine at all. Rich black fruit, candied prunes, some tobacco and leather. Perfect match with the crispy charred bits on a roast chicken. Drinking very nice right now, can continue to age.
