Bright ruby red with a hint of garnet. Aromas of stewed fruits with some beetroot and clove. More acidic than I was expecting. Sour cherry ( hope not added acid). This comes from Copains best vineyard in the Anderson Valley. Still quite vibrant with bright red fruits. Not as impressive as I wanted it to be.

On the nose the California version of Vosne Romanee spice . Wonderful concentration in the mouth with minimal weight. Red fruit, cranberry and lavender mix with the slightest hint of earth.

Don't open for a few years. Needs time to unfurl & even a few hours of breathing won't get it there at this stage. If you can't resist, try it with a Coravin but otherwise try to save it for later!

Live the new 2012 Kiser en Bas Pinot noir. Dense red fruits and delicate spice. Earthy core and long powerful finish. Great example of the perfect vintage in this coastal climate.

Favorite Pinot? Maybe...just maybe. Incredible balance between deep fruits, vanilla, and spices. Love it
