My style of CA pinot noir - floral fruit and spice, nimble on the palate, bright acid to keep it refreshing.

A fantastic blending of earth and fruit. Ample but I non-aggressive oak frames the body & flavors well. Very refined.

Very Pinot -- ripe red and black cherries and strawberry on the nose, cherries, cranberries, spice on palate; lovely texture, sleek balance of tannin and bright acidity. Moderate finish with a hint of that oh-so-California cola. Opens up with air to added richness and a delicious funkiness. Very tasty wine.

Surprisingly, this CA Pinot is the most Burundian domestic Pinot I've had to date. Only 13% abv, this has high levels of acidity and minerality, not unlike a typical Burgundy Premier Cru. A surprise, in a good way.

Nice cinnamon spiciness to this one. Soft red fruit. Bright acidity.

Great light Pinot, not too high on the alcohol.
