What a Friday group tasting put on by Dan! Killer wines. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 5 reds, 1 dessert. All blind.

I guessed Cali Pinot here, and assumed it was mid-2000s, so I got both of those but got convinced this was a Calera. This had a bit more cola and cedar/spice than the other pinots after it.

A year too late or perhaps bad storage but still very good.

A bit acidic but otherwise more going on than the bowl of cherries that often is the story of Cali Pinot

Kick ass stuff. Raspberry and coffee. Spicy. Deep cherry and cran. Nice acid. Aged really well.

Nothing better than a tasty wine after a long day. Juicy nice balance between the fruit and darker notes. It seems more RRV than Sonoma coast.
