Always has this spicy umami character along with raspberry jam and herbs. Juicy and adding some cedar and cherry cordials to the mix with a little age. Some of the oldest Pinot Noir vines in CA, planted in 1978.

Cherry and some citrus tang. Pure and fresh. Good.

WNH event number 3...new world Pinot. Such a treat to experience the many different variations of Pinot!

In the running for WOTN. Everything about this wine was firing on all cylinders. Candied and cranberry pie, caramel orange blossom, and rhubarb tart all on the nose. Perfect with the palate having impeccable acidity and a finish of black cherry that lingers forever. Incredible,
@Eric LaMasters !

It is the measure of many great wines that while they blow you away when opened, you also despair at the thought of how amazing they will be in the five or ten years you have robbed them of in your immediate pleasure.

White strawberries, raspberry skins, clove, violets. So much complexity with perfectly balanced texture and acidity. Expertly crafted. No need to open anytime soon.

Tangy raspberry cranberry goodness with a sour cherry kicker. Cloudy and velvety.

Sleek and expressive. Nose fills with violets and cinnamon-showing root beer and cardamon...with a hint of effervescence?? Back of the palate I get this deep cherry drop.
