On a trip to CA I visited Fess Parker. Deep Ruby with aromas of sweet red fruits spices and oak. On the palate cherry and tart strawberry flavors with a touch of vanilla and pepper spice. Well balanced with nice acidity. Medium finish that was very pleasant. Tasting Sample.

Good, light pinot. Initial taste is somewhat bold and acidic but mellows out in the middle and finish. Two distinct changes in taste and fantastic for the price. Would be great lightly chilled.

I haven't had any bad Pinot from Santa Rita Hills. And this certainly doesn't disappoint.

Wyatt favors more than me...on the drier side, full flavor, not sweet.

Surprisingly good Pinot Noir for what you can find in Safeway. At least not that fake Pinot that tastes like grape juice. Will have it with pork tenderloin marsala sauce reduction I am cooking now.
