Wild cherries, rosemary, roses, and white pepper with a waft of smoky deliciousness. Layered and gorgeous.

A very balanced, lively, and elegant Pinot. Very rarely can I use elegant and California Pinot Noir in the same sentence, but with this Failla bottling, I can.

Lovely. One of the best CA Pinots I've ever had.

2014. Exuberant fruit and acid-laced juice and pretty grapes all in a row. Yowza! Too young but so damn tasty. #allthetools #AtoZ

Decanted 2 hours and still fairly closed but shows a dense core and nice tannin structure. May be better in a year or two.

Super transparent with its terroir. Fruit shines through gritty layers of distinct tannin. Hirsch has such a clear voice. Amaze.

Damn!! Layered dark fruit, complexity, and a long finish. What else do you need in a wine?
