Very good but now showing up tonight. Stemmy and a little green but I appreciate the direction it appears to be going

Riper fruits - cranberry jam, raspberry preserves, strawberry compote - a rich, complex mouth full of creamy wine.

Herbal and delicate. A beautiful example of a low alcohol Santa Cruz Pinot.

The tannins are interesting, wonder how much whole clusters they used.

Soft tannins and good integration. Wonderfully bright wine that reminds me why I love Pinots from the Santa Cruz AVA. A stellar cold weather wine that didn't disappoint.

Nice burgundy color. A nose that draws you in. Good fruit. Good dried oak. Good combo of sweet and sour. Deep red fruit right off the bat, with the sweetness transitioning immediately to drying structure and tannins. An adult version of sour patch kids. Very well made.

Sweet black fruit on the nose, with a hint of tart cherry and a touch of menthol. Agile, with great intensity and persistence, and substantial structure lurking under the youthful exuberance. Clearly New World, and not the least bit ashamed of it, nor should it be.
