Black cherry, raspberry, blackberry, licorice, mossy earth, oak and hints of eucalyptus . Good structure and soft tannins.

Blind tasting. One of the winners for Pinot. Again, very clean, minimal oak and great depth. Lovely wine.

A little on the ripe side for me, but a classy wine with a beautiful SRH pinot profile. Huge crowd pleaser at the table.

Sour cherry and a bit of licorice. Very well balanced but a bit lacking in texture.

Mid to light weight but packs a punch with intense red fruit and savory elements. A little earthiness on the nose is a nod to the Old World. Tasty (and flexible) with the various dishes enjoyed this evening.

Enchanting aroma. Balsa wood, pomegranate and a teeny bit of funk. It's very enjoyable but the flavors and texture do not live up to the nose.
