Wish I could stop drinking these. Fruit is gorgeous and stems have resolved, acid is still ridiculously high. Needs 5 more years to settle down, but you can drink now if you like em young.

Fantastic nose. A little riper on the palate than I expected for 2011, but still delicious.

Among the best CA Pinot Noirs I've tried. Tart black cherries with an undertone of black olive. Crystalline, dense fruit with a surprising lightness that reminded me of an 2007 Jerome Chezeaux Clos de Vougeot.

Way too young, but this is gorgeous. Can't wait to follow it for a decade.

Great balance, fine-tuned acidity, sweet tannins and wonderfully present red berries on the lingering finish.

My first taste of the AV vineyard. Like sunshine in a glass. Bravo @RhysVineyards
