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.

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

Favorite from the tasting. Tart dark cherry, cranberry, earth, orange peel. Highest in acid, and tannins and way more presence in the mouth but still balanced in every way . Bigboi pinot. Cant wait to try in a few years.

Bright with lots of dark cherry and asian tea. Very good but preferred the Estate bottling which was smokin.
