From the GIoia vineyard, I found this the least interesting of the bunch.

2010 is starting to get over the hill, but robust but nice bright finish

2012 Gioia. A little tight at the moment but a promising future. Smells like whole cluster Pinot and has some grip to back it up. Excellent mid- weight Pinot. Give it a couple yrs.

Double decant and pour. A winsome murky medium red color. On the nose: tart cherries, floral, ground cinnamon, eucalyptus. Taste: mild under ripe strawberry, spice, a little plum, herbs, and some earth. A savory wine, tannins still have a very slight kick, with a medium smooth finish. Drink em if you got em.

Like it. Bit of cherry cola notes coming through. Gets better with air.
