I think this isn’t my favorite vintage but Banshee remains a delight. Cherry Vanilla Coke for the wine lover. Texture of silk weight of...let’s call it thin wool. Soothing. Just interesting enough to keep me going and effortless enough to pay attention to my date.

A bit heavy handed with the oak, which hid the nice acidity and bright fruit. Easy drinking for what it is worth

Classic and elegant on the nose. Sour cherry and rhubarb, but hardly a fruit driven wine. The oak comes off as authentic and very well done. Good value.

Holler, autumn, you're making yourself heard with this ethere
al #SonomaCoast #PinotNoir, all rose and underbrush and dusty mineral. Plush tannin, velvet-really-velvet texture...like sitting in a plum velvet seat at an opera house. Music sold separate, alas.

Light but fruity - a lot of red fruit and some plums.
