Color is starting to fade but not brackish at all. Very pretty fruit. Dried plum, cherry, anise and fig. Beautifully nuanced and subtle. Excellent example of 10 year old rrv Pinot

Dark contrast for a Pinot. Typical smell for Russian river. Initial taste was wonderful with very flavorful body. Bite at the end. Needs to sit for 30 mins

No reason to get the single vineyard when this is as good as it is.

A great Pinot, complex favors that show some tight berry (black and wild) that expand slowly. Light mineralogy but the lively flavors balance nicely.

Red fruits and restrained supple tannins. Holds up 24 hours out. Delish not superlative.

One of the best Pinot's I've had in a long time.

It's California Pinot Noir. Fruit and Alcohol, yep. But If you let open in the glass you get pomegranite, rasberry, clove spice. Develops to cedar, vanilla, caramel and smoke.

Surprising finesse. Tons of fruit but nothing cloying or overwrought. Finish goes clean with some wet hay.
