Community Tasting Notes 3

    August 22, 2014 - Ruby red with spicy red fruit aromas and flavors. Nice raspberry flavors with none of the smoke/tar flavors that I got from the bottle in March. The finish was clean, medium with some earthiness.

    March 25, 2014 - Dark ruby red with aromas of red berrries. A little too much smoke/oak on the palate for me to rate it as very good.

    December 3, 2012 - A big, spicy California style Pinot. Has dark but still transparent color. The nose has rich and concentrated baked or candied raspberry and cranberry with a hint of minerals, baking spice, maple syrup and alcohol. The blackberry and various red fruits are accompanied by an earthy, flinty component that enhances the complexity. This wine is still quite young and appreciates some air from swirling, and will only improve with short term cellaring. Nice job with noticeable, but civilized oak. The finish has more minerals and plenty of black fruit waiting to express itself.
