Beautiful Pinot, honest, bright and authentic. One of the more delicious domestic Pinots I've tasted.

Impressive pinot from a new (to me at least) producer. Lots of fresh smoky herbal character, w crunchy berry fruit.

A slightly hazy shade of cherry in the glass with a strikingly pretty nose of rich earth, black cherries, wild berries, and herbs. Who doesn’t love Anderson Valley fruit? This is such a delightfully delicious and well made Pinot. Medium bodied with more of a lush mouthfeel and medium acidity. And there’s funk. On the palate there’s a good bit of dried earth, big red fruits, and mushrooms. Clove cigarettes, spice, and leather round it out. This is so pretty and so fun. Could easily go for a few more years, but why wait?
