Light bodied, white cranberry, delicate cherry, flavors of the ocean: sea salt and marine funk

A selection of the amazing wines from the Lioco-Banshee dinner last night. This is the 2012 Marine Layer.

Really good. Don't think I would have placed this as Cali pinot. Cinnamon, clove, red cherry, herb. Fresh and lively. Kind of like the first strawberry of the season.

Took at least an hour to open up. Very, very tight on the open. Very light style Pinot noir too. Delicate but delicious.
