Delightful. Medium Garnet. Barnyard. Mushroom nose. Soft cherry with strawberry dominate notes throughout. Classic Santa Maria Hills.

Boring label. Color is lovely. Hint of rust under the rosy red. Smells like a fruit basket, fresh cut lumber and cherry cola. Flavors are very new world Pinot. Rich, fruit driven, slightly zingy. Has a hint of barnyard. It’s a nice South Coast Noir. Pleasing and aged well.

Cherry, dark berry, and sage like aromas. Lucious mouthfeel without being too heavy. I definitely wish that I had another bottle.

Nice iron/tobacco/raspberry meld. A little thin.

Cherry coke, black tea, tobacco, and spices with great minerality and a persistent, fresh finish. It’s a nice template for Sta Rita Hills, with great fruit that’s not overly extracted and great finesse.
