Just like the In Memorium montage makes me weepy during an awards ceremony, this tribute wine brought tears to my eyes. It is delightful.

Truffle, baked cherry, vanilla. Attractive nose, a little bigger than other CA Pinots

Oh boy! This was good. Individually estate picked grapes and made in the exact fashion Gina Gallo's grandpa made it. This is a tribute to Ernest and Julio. And it's good! $37 / 93pts

Pretty decent. A little too smooth for my liking. Went really well with sushi. The pickled ginger really brought out some spice. Petered out though after having it open for a while. Pretty decent for the price.
As the night wore on this just kept getting fruitier and fruitier, not in a good way. A little disappointed.

Very nice pinot... Great nose...blueberry notes at first taste. You can tell it has a higher ABV. It's smoky oak and acidic at the same time.
