Nicely restrained for the vintage. Medium bodied and good length well done for the price point.

Raspberry, brambly, brilliant. Earthy and lengthy, but the fruit is what shines.

Nice mushroom and forest floor strawberry nose. Beautiful mixture of mineral and tart acidity on the palate.

Lovely Wine. Elegant, almost like a Villages 2015 Chambolle.

A very good and light Pinot. Lots of acidity. Could be good with meals that need a easy touch.

Really impressed with everything I've tried from this new Larry Stone project. While the Avni Chard I feel is a tad bit more Burgundian, this beautifully bright appellation pinot was bursting with red fruit and showed great depth for it's level. My only knock on it is that it reminded me more of a Russian River pinot than one from Eola Amity.
