Tight at first, good mid palette. Dried herbs, cola, dark fruits. Very young still.

Youthful, lots of whole cluster influence presently. Delicious though with a great future. Structured, fascinating juice.

Rhubarb, tart raspberry, tea leaves and cherry. Tastes like Sta Rita and the whole cluster compliments this wine nicely.

Really delicious. I've always been skeptical of the IPOB wines just because there are some of them that get too acidic and lean... This though has a lushness and perfumed quality reminiscent of Fleurie. The acid is high but balanced... Balanced huh... There is also very traditional cherry soda qualities of California Pinot but there is enough of that natural wine quality to give it great depth and complexity. The price is also great.
