    August 27, 2013 - If you like California Pinot, don't waste your money on the cult stuff because this is pretty much as good as any I've tried. Still nothing spectacular and a bit monolithic with the overripe cherry coke thing in full effect, a little tannin high in the palate, decent acidity, but this lacks the subtlety and funkiness of a good burgundy. Still, I've had lots of $60-80 Cali pinots that didn't taste any better than this $18 bottle.

    September 18, 2012 - This is just a great Cali pinot value. So enjoyable. Plenty going on, layers of flavor, just right.

    May 10, 2012 - 2002 Oregon Pinots - Tasted Blind (Tom's house in Palo Alto, California): Medium red. Excellent nose. Spicy, tasty palate. A little bit harsh. Tasted blind and correctly guessed as California Pinot Noir.
