Not a bad way to lunch. Jammy plum with explosive strawberry burst.

Birthday celebration. You know it's great with the shocked face of someone tasting Kosta for the first time. She looks up and say "oh, this could get me in a lot of trouble". Great fruit, balance n finish. Happy birthday

Soft opening at K & L Bisyro, Sebastopol. The wine was really young, as expected. But I enjoyed it. I'd enjoy it more in 6 years.

Classic RRV Pinot, the 2012 is showing beautifully already! Bright red raspberry and tart cranberry with subtle herbal notes. Oak on the palate, but not too heavy handed....solid!!

Not the monster I thought it was going to be. Instead she was a beautiful, voluptuous, soft body sweetheart.

Over ripe fruit and high alcohol. Not what I'm looking for in a Pinot. Not my style
