Smoked meat and mushroom. Light black fruit and spices. Bright red fruit on the palate. Great acid, super light tannins with a meaty and fruity finish

Biased maybe (made by my husband) but since I get to taste it before release I can say: love it! after two weeks of being open, this wine still carry amazing fruit and velvety texture.

True to Gary himself-Big, bold and flashy. Deep muddled blackberry in color. Almost reminds me of a Syrah with how deep the color is. You can really tasty the terroir and less manipulation from Jeff the winemaker. Herbs and dried raspberry with a long persistence finish. Will only get better with more time.

Excellent wine, but too young. Needs to be decanted...but has great potential!

Rediculously delicious bottle of pinot. And yes if Gary's name is on it, I buy it. Family owned Star market in Salinas has the best selection of local wine. Shared it with my girl Patrice and the waiter at our local in Malibu
