    March 15, 2014 - Very monolithic. Fruit bomb, Cali Style. Not my cup of tea.

    December 24, 2013 - Fairly dark. Nose of spice and dark fruits. Black cherry fruit with spice long finish. Quite delicious.

    August 13, 2013 - Excellent! Round and fruity on the nose. Rich and well balanced on the tongue with some clear spicy tones and a nice long aftertaste.

    July 30, 2013 - I am a big fan of Anderson Valley Pinots. Black Kite is my favorite. The '09 for me, was a great combination of red fruit forward minerality with a refined balanced mid palate. The finish provided the acidity that makes the Burgundian/Californian character the perfect compromise of Old and New world pinot.....Highly recommended.

    July 15, 2013 - PnP, not decanted and served too cold. More on the full body/big style, excellent juice but would have shown better if had been decanted and warmer. Nothing off. $42
