A wonderful Pinot noir! Bright and beautiful color, great flavor--big red fruit with complex darker notes. Medium long and delicious finish. A real great surprise. Have already gotten more.

Pulled from a cellar that naturally fluctuates 50-70F 40-60 RH%. Tastes outstanding right now. I love that this wine is unfiltered. Lots of character, dark red fruit, black cherries and fresh roses on the nose, black cherries and dried cranberries in mouth, long finish.

Great bottle for the obstreperous growing season of 08 in California. When first opened it seemed over oaked. However, with just a short time to breathe it has abundant fruit. Underripe black and red cherries on the nose with hints of strawberry. I always get a fresh rubber smell from pinots from this region. Nice spicy french oak scents. Lots of over ripe, bruised strawberry jammy goodness. Pomegranate undertones on the palate as well. Its finishes with a nice caramel, vanilla and cedar oaky ness. I really like it.
