January 3, 2014 - Simple and enjoyable. Fruit forward with a bit of back end spice. The fruit was gone after 2 hours and poured the last glass down the drain. Suggest to drink it now. Appropriately priced.

February 22, 2013 - Lighter-to-medium bodied, fresh, supple, tangy, and easy drinking with a straightforward yet attractive profile of red fruits and spices.
October 21, 2012 - 13.5% alcohol. Medium cherry color. Initially tight nose, but it opened up to reveal pretty black cherry and earth notes. In the mouth, quite supple and with good, slightly tart cherry fruit. Solid underlying complexity, good acidity, and a pleasant finish. Very nice. B+

October 3, 2012 - It's amazing how much better the 2009 vintage of this bottling is than the 2008. Where the 08 is limited aromatically and falls flat on the palate, the 09 has enjoyable classic CA Pinot markings on the nose and delivers vibrant fruit on the palate. 2009 CA Pinot is the real deal.
