Nice light fruity Pinot. Aromas of black fruit. Med to light body. Dry. Will drink again. Good price.

I'm a fan of light Pinots. I want that floral character, acidity and aromatics, not crushing tannin, high alcohol and jammy over extracted flavours. I've enjoyed Pinots from Leyda in the past as the proximity to the Pacific Ocean lends a genuine cool climate character to the wine, but this was disappointingly dilute without the depth.

The black cherries, bramble and warm soil are nice and hint at some good potential, but it's like someone added a shot of water to the glass which mutes the flavours and inexplicably accentuates the heat and tannin to feel bigger than they ought to be. It's Judy middle of the road Pinot and I know the region can deliver way better.
