Has held up extremely well. A 2010 that’s in a great spot. True Pinot!

2012 vintage. In remarkably good shape, considering its age and provenance. Tart cranberry, tart cherry, crabapple, red plum, autumn leaves. Fruit showed no sign of wear.

Brighter Pinot fruits, moist granite dust, ripe black cherry. Enjoyable.

Dark cherry, cranberry, orange rind. Delicious with great acid lift and tension. Yum!

Great value, bouncy fruit, soft and easy. Awesome alternative to pinot from almost anywhere for the price. These Spatbugunders have such a great sense of minerality to them.

Nice delicate light red fruits, spice, acids, minerality. On the Syrah side of Pinot in the tertiaries.
