Nice scarlet purple. Clear and vibrant in the glass. Strawberry, raspberry and roses in the nose. Very CA Pinot in its fruit, alcohol and structure. A little heavy but a nice wine

Yet another '02 CA Pinot - this one demonstrating a more youthful and brawny disposition.

2001, 2003 and 2004 side by side, tasting in that same order: 2001 the best, followed by 2003, 2004 disappointing. Interestingly, all are labelled as 14.1%. Would love to know actual ABVs.

Wow, you can tell this had some big fruit in its youth...because it’s still prominent. Nose has faded to a sour/candied cherry. Lively acidity wraps dark red fruits, figs, black cherry liquor. Nuts. Looooooong finish. Reminds me of a tawny. Definitely several years left in this old gal, which is wild.
