2010 - One of my favorite, and most consistent producers of Pinot Noir in the US, and world for that matter. Give this 2 more years. Great balance of fruit to acidity to tannin, with raspberry juice and an edge of compote, that strange terroir of the Santa Cruz Mountains of garrigue mixed with eucalyptus combine with floral notes of rose hips, and clove.

Beautiful texture. Sweet red fruit and baking spice with an elevated high toned nose

Yes. I wish there was a lot more of this in KS. Cool climate, North American PN at its best. Still very, very young.

I feel this will merit a higher rating in a few years. Just getting in the drinking window.
