| ||Tasted by glennramsdell on 1/2/2013 & rated 87 points: Nice cherry on the nose. Tannins running a bit thin. Picked up some cranberry. Bordeaux-like. Would drink some more but have only this one bottle! (437 views)|
| ||Tasted by saki846 on 11/26/2010: Drank this with Thanksgiving dinner and it was well received.|
Opened up this bottle along with a 2008 Kosta Brown. The two pinots were very different, but both good.
A bit more sublte than the typical California pinots that I typically drink, but this had also been aged significantly longer than most of the other California pinots that I buy and consume. (831 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, Romania, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.
