All kinds of cool-vintage blue/purple berry and tart cranberry fruit, spice, herbaciousness and flower perfume. Understated and delicate but still potent and complex.

Fully mature, peak drinking Pinot, showing some age visually, but striking clarity. Light, but expansive. Dry red and blue fruit up front, lightly funky florals, broad and savory mid-palate, deep, but unobtrusive lingering acid and ancient dried herbs. Really wish this wasn't my last bottle.

Probably the best, purest New World PN I’ve encountered. Drunk outside out of less than ideal glassware it nonetheless impressed with refined dark red fruit, overall balance, and elegant, savory finish.

Slow ox'ed for about 4 hours and then left in the glass for another 45 minutes. 100% whole cluster and no new wood bottle of pure joy. After putting the glass to my nose for the fist time, all I could think about was...Strawberry fields forever. Those strawberries were buffeted by red cherry, roses, and freshly disturbed earth. I've written this several times in other notes but it has never been more apt in this case, I could smell this wine forever without taking a sip and be content. The palate is medium-weight with bright wild cherry, strawberry, mushroom, herbs, and a dose of minerality. The finish is long and lingers in waves on your tongue. Simply a gorgeous bottle of Pinot. 94pts.

Deep dark cherry, brooding, but precise, with a little menthol, very good but it needs time to show more complexity, and all of the raw materials seem to be in place to let it do so.

Smokey cherry, bacon, and black pepper on the nose. Velvety soft violets on the palate closely followed by red plum.
