Blood orange, pomegranate, pine needle, gripping tannins. Reliably good.

Needs time. Couldn’t resist. Killed way too early but very good. Well made with lots of alcohol and fruit today but in two or three years it should be $$$$$$$

Nearly opaque reddish purple hue. Raspberry, black cherry, leather, violets, and baking spices evident on the nose. On the palate its bold with a darker fruit profile offering impressive depth and concentration yet with nice balance and 14.1% alcohol. Long, somewhat spicy finish. Really nice value in California Pinot at $36.

10 years on and just a Sonoma Cty appellation but this 07 is singing. Would guess it was half it’s age.

Citrus, cranberry, berry bramble, earthiness. Good stuff.

Fresh and lively. Enters with dense fruit that is well framed by acidity and carries through to the pure red fruited finish. With air time the spice flavors develop and there is a little bit of a fresh asphalt note that is delicious.

I was going to say what a great early drinker this is and then I looked at my previous note and I said it all! These are so tasty, the only downside of this wine is that there is never enough.

Nothing compelling to say, just that it’s definitely the right decision. Oh, and sorry Mom and Dad, I raided your cellar... (I definitely don’t have any 2014 left).
