Very flavorful, yet balanced and pretty. Black cherry is at the fore if the expressive nose, supported by dark flowers, baking spice and orange pith. Medium to medium+ body in the mouth with fine, silky tannins and a long, lightly mouthwatering finish. Flavors are consistent with the nose, especially that core of black cherry. Drink now thru 2022+

One of the great American Pinot Noir. The nose alone was worth smelling for hours (which we did.) Bibiana is one of America's most brilliant young winemakers.

I have to say this was not my favorite. I was a little disappointed and expecting something different. On the nose I got musty closet and forest floor. Very savory even after day 2. Dusty cherries and some spice.

Deep yellow hue. Aromatic and after some time letting it breathe, citrus notes with subtle hints of exotic fruit such as pineapple and banana candy. Slight toastiness. Decent minerality, nicely textured, while heat towards the end indicated a higher alcohol level.

2nd of 3 Wayfarer pinots poured. Oddly enough it was not poured in a Pinot glass, which I found quite odd and detracted from the taste/aroma. Still a great example of the variety, but a bit tighter than the others served. Could use some more time and perhaps a brief decanting.
