 Tasted by kleinahoe on 6/27/2014 & rated 92 points: Smooth. maturing nicely. (505 views)
 Tasted by Harneloot on 4/27/2013 & rated 89 points: violets (1131 views)
 Tasted by affordableCollector on 7/19/2012 & rated 88 points: Single Vineyard Russian River Valley (San Francisco): clear, light ruby in color. cherry, nut, red berry, mineral, on the nose. black cherry, cedar, vanilla cola, mineral, on the palate. light, smooth on the finish. (1322 views)
 Tasted by JimN on 8/8/2011 & rated 90 points: Fairly intense Pinot Noir but with few secondary flavors. I like it a lot at this price. About an hour decant was fine. Probably worth giving it a few more years in the cellar to see how it develops, but if you have a case you can start drinking now. (2232 views)
 Tasted by ews3 on 10/20/2010 & rated 92 points: Zachys Robin Hood 2010 Wine Tasting (La venue, NYC): reminded me of a siduri. refreshing acid. fruity cherry and red raspberry. (3289 views)
 Tasted by kleinahoe on 7/24/2010 & rated 91 points: Fruit forward, good mouth feel, but not particularly complex. (2249 views)
 Tasted by TannicBeast on 5/10/2010 & rated 92 points: A very attractive, clean nose of black cherries, raspberries and strawberries. Beautifully balanced on the palate, with consistent flavors and a long finish. Drinking very well right now but will likely improve with age. It has the tannins and structure to go the distance, but it is drinking so well now I think there's no reason to let all the fruit fade away. (1914 views)
 Tasted by ed-d on 3/3/2010 & rated 91 points: Black cherry aromas. Light, pretty red cherry fruit flavors with a mineral infused, chalky finish. Light, but tasty. (1977 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.
