Smokey barrel and dried fruit tannins. Light body... long finish. Like a new world Barolo... and exactly what I expect out of a Californian Pinot Noir.

I really liked this bottle! Not as much as NZ, Oregon or Burgundy but it was tasty with our BBQ cook out! I got some nice earth and anise on the wine with a long long long finish

Lots of red fruit, cherry and raspberry. Big oak presence on the palate leading to a finish with some vanilla. Good length.

Very nice. Not overbearing, but still a lot of flavor.

Lively nose with rose water and plum. Cherries in the back of the mouth before a multi layered finish traced with nutmeg.

Pours Ruby in color. ON THE NOSE: cinnamon, cranberry and cherry. ON THE PALATE: Cherry, earth and a hint of heat. Light bodied medium finish.
