Really great price point on this stellar Pjnot from a great producer. Typicity and place are exemplified with ripe black cherry, rose petal, and good acidity. Smoke and tar accents let me know this is unmistakeable Santa Rita Hills Pinot.

Tart. Thin. Short. If it was only wine served...I'd go w/ liquor or beer.

Tasted in November 2014: Strong barnyard and leather notes that decant to reveal beautiful menthol, worn saddle leather, cranberries, rapsberries, and notes of clay, limestone, cedar, and earth.

Pleasantly suprised... After waking up from a 6 yr nap, it offers a well balanced complexity and retains some bing cherry flavors
