A very tasty Pinot that has more Californian character than expected. Broad, rich, dark fruit. Full mid pallet and ripe rich tannin. Seems like a short term drinker. Easy to enjoy now. Not what I was hoping for and not sure if this is typical of Raphet

Classic approachability always found in Raphet, young yes, but with some air it really starts to shine.

Comes together after some air. I would give it a vigorous decant to let the brett dissipate a bit. Fruit comes on nicely after the air hits.

Rustic, a bit too Brett for us, yet opened up with good fruit.

Not great but definitely Burgundy. Delicious, but far from profound.
