#staritahills #pinotnoir #sbcountywines #paliwineco I believe a 90 is the right score for this wine. It's aging beautifully for a 2011. Deep and ripe PN the aromas are more VA and almost syrah or Zinfandelish than PN. What I love is the body and the refinement on the palate. There's a lovely sage and myrrh sensation that later leaves a dark cherry jam finish. Warm alcohol.

Deep rich and very smooth for three years young. Pepper and fruit flavors in a positively Pinot wine. Could be sipped on its own merit or paired nicely with a rich or spicy meal. Seems like it would age very well.

Very impressive. Vanilla and spice over blackberry and currant. Fairly long finish on this medium bodied Pinot.

I think my husband would rate this @paliwineco a little higher than I would. Strong and bold, very masculine. I would hold a while longer to let the flavors integrate more. Still good though. I personally prefer the Rivera #PinotNoir.

This has all the flavors and aroma for a fine Pinot Noir. A little bolder than some, lite pepper notes followed by fruits and ferment. Very nice drink.

Not bad for a cali pinot noir! This is 2013 Pali Wine Company and Fiddlestix vineyards pinot noir. Very drinkable! Very berry good. Lots of cherries and red Licorice. Finishes Dry with a thirst for more.
