2015, may be their best yet. A little more subtle on the oak than in the past. Cranberry and a hint of earl grey tea. I'm a fan!

Good Pinot. Needs to air a little before drinking.

Beautiful fruit unfortunately obscured by heavy handed extraction and new oak.

Definitely not as expressive of place as other wines from the appellation. Very fruit-forward and only only moderate acid. It's cheap though so there's that.

Loads of cherry on the nose and palette, good layer of oak and a soft finish. Lovely wine. 2010 Vintage
