At Jess and Matt's 'Wedding.': Strawberry, rhubarb, cinnamon, super juicy ripe sweet fruit notes. Losing some of the cinnamon and spice notes, making for more of a fruit loaded upfront style. Über-juicy.

In a great place, and showing a mellower bite and some more fleshed out lanolin and wool. Dynamic and complex. Should hold for a few years yet, but can't imagine more improvement!

Poured into glasses around 30 min before serving. Beet red with an opaque core. The nose offers dark berries & hints of plum with some cracked pepper notes. Medium bodied, fruity blackberries at first. Excellent concentration & intensity. Sting acid framework & mild tannic grip. Balanced summertime red. Very good.

Stone fruit and minerals on the nose. Refreshing and crisp, short finish. Nice summer sipper.

Best at 10mins out of the fridge. Wet stone and hint of grapefruit on the nose. Medium-light bodied, lacking fruit distinction on the palate but has a nice sparkling water quality to it. My first reaction was the wine tastes watered down but I like that it shows off the minerality over fruit on the palate. On the finish, subtle pink grapefruit and lemon zest round out a value outdoor summer wine.

Popped and poured. Gentle berry/cranberry aroma. Tart flavors of red fruit, lemon, with an unfunky earthy component. Lemon/mineral finish.

Delicate, appealing, firm acids, tart flavors, Loire sensibility. Some depth, and enough complexity to keep it interesting. Good value.

Popped and poured. Crisp, bright aroma of red fruit and spice. Rich flavors of vibrant, spicy berry fruit. Tart, full finish. Stylistically reminiscent of my favorite Languedoc producers, but with a definite element of (for lack of a better term) California sun.

More complex than first appearances indicate, and it may or may not develop over time. Right now one of its most appealing features is its freshness and vigor, so I'm not sure there's any point in finding out.

Previously had a tasting pour and wanted to see how it would do with food. Purple in color, this was all about fresh fruit, blueberries and black raspberries with enough structure to stand up to the pasta dish. Not an ager, but fun to drink now.

Served chilled around 60F. Light red, translucent. Bright, juicy, tart raspberry-cherry, some earth, high acid, some tannins. Reminds me of a beajoulaus or a high mountain red, but brighter.

1/22/2015 - Foggy Pinot Likes this wine: 90 points

The 2013 Folk Machine from Potter Valley impressed me. It is a nice, straightforward cold-weather pinot. The low alcohol on this also gives the fruit an opportunity to stand out. Served this with friends after slightly-chilling the bottle. All of them liked it. One of them called it "slippery" in the best kind of way. We had a Ken Wright 2013 Abbot Claim single vineyard pinot at the same tasting that was double the price of the Folk Machine--and not even close to being as interesting or good.

Excellent - a nice surprise at a low price point and low abv (11.something). Very beaujolais-like in body. Crunchy, tart red fruit. Disappears quickly!

Ver reminiscent of Steve Edmunds's Bone Jolly, this is a lively, lovely cranberry fruit cocktail in a high acid package. Very pretty and easy to drink.

Dark red fruit aromas, rhubarb, earth and brown sugar. Leaning towards cinnamon. Medium plus acid, medium minus body, but luscious sweet fruit profile.
Day 2. Still super soft on the palate. Some lead pencil and earth. Not as fruited as day 1. A joy to drink.

Winemaker tends to bottle wines early and this is another example. Citric acid needs at least another 6 months to integrate into the wine. Has future promise.

High-acid, tart, light-bodied red. Plenty of cranberry and raspberry. Enjoyed this with food much more than on its own. Tasted 2011 Valdiguie recently and it had much better structure (almost like a nice "dirty pinot"/gamay) and lacked the citric acid overkill of the 2013.

Friday Walk Around Tasting at Sam's Fine Wine & Spirits, Lexington, SC 12/12/2014 (Sams Fine Wines & Spirits, Lexington, SC): Unique and inspired, it would take little imagination to perceive this as made in Italy. There is an early picked, fresh acid crispness that is typically not evident in California. There is deep rooted minerality more European than typical Mendocino. Very low in alcohol, and quite lean for a California offering, this one is really something special. A bit of lime rind with grapefruit and green apple. Completely refreshing.
