Deliciously savory CA pinot noir. Fall leaves, smoky earth, dried flowers and gentle red fruits. Comes across old world for sure. Totally fascinating wine to watch evolve over a long meal. Cook up anything with portobello or porcini, or duck breasts.

So light. Not the kind of wine I normally drink but utterly and memorably delicious. (2014 vintage)

Really good... food friendly wine with tons of regional character and forest floor on the finish, and not over the top, the way some sb pinots are. Can’t think of a better Santa Barbara Pinot in the price range.

Vg Pinot for the price. Translucent ruby. Cranberry, red currant, cherry, strawberry, and just a smidgen of dried herbs. Sees 30% new French but can't taste a damn thing. Bright, great acid retention, and the most satiny tannins around

Smokey, then raspberry and strawberry notes. Soft tannins and light taste. No rainwater, but lighter Pinot. Slightly acidic. Light to medium body.
