Wednesday Wine Committee. Great hosting by Gavin. 1 sparkler, 4 whites, 4 reds and 2 dessert wines. All served blind as usual.

Floral and pretty. Slight crunchiness/stemmy notes on the nose to suggest a possible use of whole cluster, but I don’t think it was much. Cranberry, violets, potpourri and sage round out the palate. I called this Sonoma pinot.

Muy delicioso, con sabores a fresas muy maduras y un poco de cerezas vinagreadas! La acidez es exquisite!

Gorgeous wine. We've had several bottles of the 2010 over the years... and 8 years in it is hitting it. Alas... bittersweet as its our last bottle.

This is what Pinot Noir should taste like. Beautiful color with intense floral and perfume aromatics. On the palate it's full of layers with spice, and earth, finished with bright fruit and a finish that goes on forever.
