Community Tasting Notes (average 6 notes) - and median of 86 pts. in hiding notes with no text
| ||Tasted by rlysecky on 1/28/2008 & rated 88 points: A pleasant wine with with subtle fruit notes and some complexity with herbal and very earthy notes. While its a not a blockbuster wine, it is fairly well balanced and quite enjoyable. (1472 views)|
| ||Tasted by underwds on 7/6/2007 & rated 80 points: Very muddled fruit, or maybe just a lack of fruit. A little too tart at first, but better after an hour of being open. The finish was reasonably balanced; enough acidity for teriyaki chicken and not too much oak to overwhelm the rice accompaniments. (1536 views)|

| ||Tasted by toymatoy on 6/9/2006: Nice, fruitty. Had this on a cruise ship in my stateroom so did not really air it well... (1804 views)|

Pinot Noir Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

California California Wines (Wine Institute of California)
California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.
