Soft, easy going Pinot. Florals, cherry, cranberry on the nose. Elegant as all get out. It tastes how Pinot should taste, which is saying a lot considering a lot of what's coming out of California. Red fruit and a touch of clove. Really refined for the price. Nothing crazy but nice QPR.

Aroma is only slightly sweet smelling of strawberries. Oaky smokey cherry and spicy tannin. Extra chewy. Very entertaining for a Pinot.

If you’re looking for a fruit-forward Pinot that’s still elegant and light, but you do t want to spend $$$, here’s your white whale. The QPR here is crazy. Great with a wood-fired pizza!

Great pinot! Oaky and slightly fruity, gives it an almost savory quality.

Light and a bit earthy for a California wine which I would expect to be more fruit forward. I like that.
