Bright cherry, Asian spice, orange rind, and granite minerality. Firm tannins and plenty of acid will allow this one to develop for years!

Definitely delicious very soft and floral. Would prefer just a touch more structure.

Strawberry preserves, cherry, mineral, Asian spice, high acidity. Young, jammy, definitely needs more time. 375 ml. Update - my wife had wine on second night and said it was much better, jammy notes faded, became medium body, mineral, balanced and elegant. I wasn’t able to corroborate because she finished bottle - but I still love her.

Drinking really well for a young Pinot right now. Dark cherry with slightly plummy/candied notes, high tones of orange peel and spice but not overwhelmingly so. Middleweight with firm tannins and bright and literally mouthwatering acidity. Hits every check box today. I remain really curious to see where these can and will go. From 375mL

Kicked off a bit volatile but calmed down pretty quick. Red, earthy, meaty nose. In the mouth a real spine of acidity with a bit of the balsamic/VA there as well. Not at all the typical CA pinot flavor profile which makes this wine very interesting.
