An interesting and , ‘bramble berry’ -LOADED nose that melts into the wood as it breathes. A luscious and delightful finish.

Light and bright Ruby, lightest CA Pinot, more of an OR color. Tons of fruit and floral aromas that meld well together. Strawberry and cherry on the palate with mild spice wrapped up in a vivid acidity package. Mild soft tannins, elegant style, medium body, lingering ending with a fruity mineral ending. Very nice! Tastes great, but a couple af years could benefit, but hard to resist if you see a bottle on the menu as I did.

Generous fruit conveying a rich and leathery core but with a tiny bit of zing that was nice acid and a hint of something almost effervescent. Perfect with Asian fare @Buddakhan, Chelsea Market.

Juicy, earthy, bright & bold. Plum, red cherry and finishes with a hint of black pepper on palate. Well balanced.

Fantastic, light RRV Pinot. Full of fruit and easy drinking, but with a depth of flavor that surprises and delights.
