On work trip. Earthy deep fruit flavors, bolder Pinot with soft tannins. Yummy by itself but may be even better with food.

Ruby with red fruit aromas and complex spice. Palate shows cherry, raspberry and strawberry with cinnamon and aromatic woodsy tones. Good structure, vivid acidity with soft tannins finishing about medium.

Bright and breezy with good acidity and structure. Sweet on the palette with no sharp edges. Lots of cola and cinnamon. I consider this a step up from the Etude regular pinot.

Lots of character for a wine at this price. Smooth, full of flavor, and interesting. Love Central Coast pinots.

Grassy and Bing cherry on the nose. very rich full of fruit on the palate. Dry on mid-palate. Lacking a slight pepper finish is smooth and viscous with a hint of dried prunes at the end.
