Big and extracted. Too young for sure, but probably never going to be elegant.

Heavier pinot than I'm used to, but huge back. Spice. Pretty cool.

Remarkable fruit. Exceptional length. Much better than I could have imagined. Try this.

Taste of dried cherries, slight hint of tobacco. Smooth and herbal like pencil shavings. Love that California brought us this Pinot Noir.

Infanticide! Rich, stemmy, structured- a robust wine, but hardly flamboyant. Ethereal, airy texture back loaded with tannic weight on the finish.
