Nice red fruit. Earth, and stoney minerals. A nice treat.

Pretty solid for only their second vintage. Can't wait to see what else happens with these wines going forward. Some whole cluster, cooler Cali sites, more old than new oak. Not overworked and plenty of freshness. Happy to see all these trends coming from wines of the west coast.

Serious bottle of Pinot here. Single block from Bien Nacido. I keep fussily sniffing my glass & sipping to continually find things I missed previously. Cellar worthy, structured & nuanced. Higher toned red fruit & subtle, silky tannins embrace the palate here. I have a NY resolution to rediscover American Pinots in 2017 & this makes me very happy about that.
