 Tasted by rickfell-new on 12/16/2013 & rated 92 points: Drank with a few other California pinots watching the cowboys/packers, this was the best of the 5. Tart cherry, leather, great mouthfeel. (1020 views)
 Tasted by JAT on 9/28/2013 & rated 92 points: Nice red fruit, good backbone of acidity, velvety mouthfeel, and relatively low alcohol. Tastes more like an Oregon than California Pinot to me, but others may disagree. Well worth the price. (932 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.
