Favorite wine on our Sept 2015 CA trip. Smooth and light but tons of flavor. Fruity but not overly sweet or sticky.

Light, lean and easy to drink. Fruits are ripe, blue and black. Slightly stewed. Some light black earth and sandy minerals with decent acidity. Refreshing.

Lots of acid, lush mouth feel yet still a bit on the lighter side.

Love this wine! If you are expecting a punch in the mouth fruit bomb…. Go elsewhere. This is all about finesse. Dusty red fruit, very expressive bouquet, medium tannins.

Very tasty. Nicely balanced Pinot, not too light.
