Great acidity and long finished but had a terrible nose of macerated stewed fruit that never blew off. First time trying this wine so not sure if it was just a bottle imperfection

Flavorful, lots going on, good acidity, a bit ripe, with cola and dark fruit, would have appreciated a bit more poise, but a very distinctive and serious vineyard

Yummy as it opened up over four hours. Good particularly for a seven year old Napa Pinot. Spring Mt.

Interesting, complex Pinot noir. Give it at least 45+ mins to open up fully

Layers of cherry and strawberry with some savory notes. I think that this could benefit from additional aging and probably needs a 1-2 hour decant.
