Drank months ago...recall it was nice, top quality smooth and deeper berry medium-full bodied Pinot...but that's all - cost has been a turn-off...rating just now as it couldn't be as good as the 2015 Gap's Crown.

Delicious bodied bold Pinot. Drinking beautifully now. Red fruit core with cola note and a nice long finish.

2014 opened Nov 2017. I must admit I'm not a fan of Sonoma Coast pinots, so take this review for what it's worth. Blackberries and spearmint on the nose. Dark fruits on the front-end, but a weak astringent tannic structure on the way back fails to balance the front fruit. This is not a wine that I'd spend $100/bottle on.

Lots of wonderful fruit. Still a little young but you can see where it is going.

Bright, rich and fruity, medium bodied with a bit of spiced chocolate

Soft and peppery palate. This could use maybe two more years.

Young but good to drink now. Bought at a wine bar without decant. Could use some air.

Young and fruity despite it being their more old world style supposedly. Needed lots if decanting. Not as mind blowing as expected given the ratings and love from the press
