 Tasted by KenYz on 8/1/2010 & rated 85 points: Settled down in the cellar for a few months, so none of the negative characteristics here. Good pinot, a bit one-dimensional. Sweet for my palate. (911 views)
 Tasted by Richard Jennings on 6/25/2010 & rated 90 points: 2010 Pinot Days Grand Tasting (plus trade tasting); 6/25/2010-6/27/2010 (Fort Mason, San Francisco, California): Tart strawberry, rosehips, roses nose; ripe cherry, strawberry palate; medium finish 90+ pts. (2107 views)
 Tasted by River Rat on 5/24/2010 & rated 90 points: Tasted at Vinify Collective Exclusive Tasting - Santa Rosa, CA - 5/23 /2010 - Dark Cherry nose, smooth palate with a glycerine mouth feel with black cherry and cola or black cherry cola. Medium finish. (1051 views)
 Tasted by swp3 on 2/19/2008 & rated 89 points: Darker fruit than the Zepaltas wine from this vineyard. Black cherry, cola, vanilla. Texture is terrifically soft and mouth coating, but there's a greenish high note that really comes through on the finish and detracts. Maybe this integrates or goes away, but right now both the '06 wines from this vineyard impaired by this. (1201 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.
