If you snagged a few bottles of this wine in your allocation you can feel comfortable opening a bottle soon - let the wine evolve in your glass. If you’re patient, you’ll be greatly rewarded by tucking a few bottles in your cellar for 5+ (and up to 11) years. 77% of the fruit comes from DuMOL’s O’Connell Estate Vineyard and 23% from Occidental Road Vineyard. Finn is always layered with a velvety finish, and always a Member favorite.

Heck of a 3rd Friday to kick off the holidays!

Stemmy, possibly whole cluster? Charred rhubarb, violet, and lavender potpourri on the nose. Crunchy cranberry too. A slight hoisin sauce note which is captivating on the palate. Blackberry, cherry, and cedar.

Limited production hailing from the Finn Vineyard that shows so well. Soft and elegant no hard edges. Cinnamon and Baking Spice. Finish reviles hints if smoke and baked apple. Delish.

Finn is always a winner. DuMOL Estate Vineyard + Occidental Road Vineyard. Lovely and juicy. Floral nose of violets. Beautiful tannins. Russian River Valley is hard to beat.

This limited production PN shows spiced cherry pie, menthol and dried herbs 🌿 on the nose, then changes on the next swirl to a blueberry cobbler. Super intense yet shows no weight. Soft and seductive, reveals a tarry element and cigar smoke. Finish is focused showing depth and a lengthy mineral finish.

Beautiful Pinot Noir that will age nicely for another 10+ years. Bright cranberry & pomegranate with cherry as well.

One of the pros rated this very highly. I beg to differ. Textured and complex, but not hugely memorable. Oak treatment is really nice. I’ll cellar the others I have, but I don’t hold out much hope.

From magnum. Not sure I could invent a better Thanksgiving wine. Bing cherry and cranberry are offset by just enough tannins. Round and resilient. Just a hint of orange on the long finish. Outstanding.

Such a great pinot - dark sour cherry with a grip that kicks in after 4/5 seconds! In it’s 6th year - this may out live me!

WNH event number 3...new world Pinot. Such a treat to experience the many different variations of Pinot!

This was fantastic and in a perfect drinking window. Very floral showing lots of spice and pepper. Red and black fruit dominant. Smoke/charcoal finish with fig. Great bottle
