Sample. Very light garnet red. Layered nose with rose petals, wet rainforest, light brown sugar, red cherries, crayons, and a light burnt note. Smooth tannins (5/10) and medium bodied. Lighter red fruits, ripe strawberries, and wet river stones. Bright and crisp. Solid acidity and structure with medium finish. With a little more bottle age this will develop some more power. Drink till 2022.

Full disclosure, I’m not a Pinot guy. That said, this is the best Pinot I’ve ever had. It’s what I feel Pinot SHOULD be. Simply amazing.

Good solid pinot but not funky enough for me. Goes well with Indian food.🙌

Everything a Mendocino Pinot should be and more!
Cherry nose, strawberry and stone with hints of plum and fig on the mouth.
Decanted for 50 minutes and served slightly chilled.
