Perfectly pleasant but unremarkable….not a fruit bomb, nicely restrained, but just a bit boring. Perfect as an aperitif but early overwhelmed by food

First 100% estate grown vintage. Escolle will be recognized among the great Pinot sites in CA in time. This 2014 is going places.

Tart cranberry with smooth cherry and spice. Low tannins, medium alcohol, and high acid. A well balanced sipper.

Cherry bomb with cinnamon, oak, clove, and white pepper. Low tannins, medium alcohol, and sizzlingly high acid. More fruit forward than the previous vintage.

Dark cherry nose. More dark cherry on the palate with strawberry, cranberry, and spice. Medium minus tannins, medium alcohol, and high acid. A quintessential, silky smooth SLH pinot.
