A rich Sonoma Coast Pinot from a top producer. Plenty of oak and cherry compote, but not as overwhelming as other Cali producers. For most west coast drinkers, this may be as good as it gets. Perhaps could benefit from further aging as there is taughtness when first opened, but we will have to test this out.

Young but shows lots of potential. Bigger and darker fruit profile than the SWK Vineyard
