Reminds me of a Cote de Beaune, strawberry and cherries, earth and spice. Good acid, and importantly, delicious!

Still feels young, and benefits from decanting and/or air in the glass. Bright berries, mostly blue fruits, saturate the palate with a great acidity and mineral-laced finish. Bravo.

Good Pinot. The fruit tasted a little cooked, there wasn't much complexity, and the acidity had really faded. I expected more from LWC, especially in a great vintage.

Red and blue fruits on the nose and palate, followed by grippy fine tannins and a really nice finish. Bravo.

Delicious from the very first sip. The Central Coast Pinot shows savory red and blue fruits with a lengthy finish. A beautiful expression of Pinot.

2013 Vintage. Candied lightly spicy red fruits with a great finish. Good acidity and light tannins. Not a long-term keeper, but absolutely delicious right now.
