The Pinot was great substitute for cranberry relish with Thanksgiving turkey but I'm in love with that BT bourbon creme

Bright red fruit, crisp, acid driven... on the Burgundian side of Cali Pinot--at least stylistically.

Needs way more time - thin and uninteresting the first day, second day a bit more weight and complexity. Bright red fruits and a pleasant sweetness.

In my book the best Pinot from the STA. Rita Hills. Fairly extracted and Burgundian in style. Just 13.3%! Black tea and dark berries. Under-ripe blackberries hint of plum. Great complexity and depth. I believe this is dry farmed on very poor soil. Spicy needs ca. 4 more years. It’s worth to seek out this wine or other vintages a benchmark!

Great fruit and minerality, one of the finest wines from Santa Barbara.

Woah this was oak-y in both nose and palate when opened. Started off with strong cherry nose, slight black tea. Mellowed and balanced out as it opened up.

Cherry notes and black tea 13.3% good balance with sufficient acidity. One of the best Burgundian style Pinot's from California - really impressive!
