Our monthly 4th Friday event at the storage facility. No requirements, just wine you want to share with others! Always an enjoyable time.

Gap's crown may be my favorite vineyard for Pinot. The fruit that comes out of here is so powerful and in your face. KB is able to get a bit of restraint out of this, but it can't fully tame it. This is a wild beast. Blackberries. Nutmeg. Birchwood. Solid backbone. Serious pedigree can be tasted throughout!

Not the extracted fruit bomb I would expect. 2011 forced a leaner wine for many and this is a prime example. Lot of great acidity and flavors of bright cherry with a long smooth finish.

Distinct oak imprint. Came across having more whole cluster than 5%. Impressive body and concentration for 2011.
