Biodynamically grown from winemaker Chris Brockway. Tasted ‘16 & ‘17 together. Ruby with blackberry fruit aromas and sweet floral spice notes. On the palate raspberry & dried blackberry flavors with herb. minty & floral notes, well balanced. Soft tannins, vivid acidity, medium ending with fruit and herb notes. To me ‘17 slightly better. Tasting Sample.

Nice ripe red and black fruit with notes of earthy musk and cherry cola. Fruit continues on the palate with juicy acidity. Long finish. Nice balance and complexity while staying drinkable.

Young and bright. Tart berries with a dry, herbal finish. Having it with leftover chicken.

Good value again for Broc Cellars sister brand ($26). Pinot taste more reminiscent of Russian River than Santa Lucia - a good thing.

Broc Cellars label and Tim says it tastes like Russian River pinot so yay! Super tasty. Good price point for a little splurge at $26. More please.
