April 8, 2016 - @work
Medium minus ruby, sweet ripe red fruit, red cherry, really pure fruit, some oak - ~30% new french oak (actually 10%). Baked strawberries. A bit developed. Good fruit ripeness but structurally a hot mess.
Elevated alcohol - 14% (actually 14.5%)
Medium plus body
I guessed Australian Grenache... lateralled to Sonoma Pinot.
Not my favorite rendition of Pinot, but it's a popular style.

March 7, 2016 - Ripe in style very much Californian pinot noir, darkish in color for a pinot, intense on the oak and on the fruit intensity with high alcohol. Not my kind of pinot anymore not even at this price range

February 5, 2016 - It's open, fruity with spice and forest floor, and about as delicious as it's going to get.

September 27, 2015 - Lovely young, drinkable, well balanced Pinot noir. Translucent medium ruby. Nose of cherry, strawberry, ripe cheese ( In a good way) and some light forest floor. The palate reflects the nose withe some creme de cassis on the finish along with a little tart cherry in an aftertaste that lasts a good 30 seconds.
