Dusty, earthy nose and gorgeous fresh fruit on the palate. Beauty.

Enjoyed perhaps a bit earlier than I should've but that's par for the course with my eager drinking style. Classic RRV PN, a bit lighter than I'm used to. Fricken good with my BBQ chicken and zucchini. Tart red fruit cola sass for days with an herbaceous earthy edge...

Opening and balancing out since tasting at release. Great nose. It's all about the nose. Still tight on the palette.

Had on the 2nd day. Fruity. Not as dense as normal.

Nice Gary with a bit of age on it. Darker fruit than most RRV pinots I've come across. Blackberry, crushed raspberry, and some mint. Smooth and seductive, this is a higher abv Pinot than I typically care for, but it's in a beautiful place and not at all offensive. A touch of earth on the back end and a lovely lasting finish. Nice stuff.

Nice complexity, a little hot on opening. After 20 minutes open it opens up nicely. Layers of berry fruits, great structure , good body at dinner with family.
