- Napa / Sonoma
Community Tasting Notes 6

August 26, 2015 - Phenomenal nose of dried herbs, roses, white flowers, and rich cherry cobbler baking spices. Rich, round, luscious palate, leading into a toasty finish. This is drinking at peak and improved far more than I thought. Not my preferred style of Pinot, but still, I enjoyed it and respect how this has matured into its own mold. Drink now.

April 5, 2015 - Good funk on opening which gave way to a more standard oak profile for Napa Pinot. Gorgeous purple color with ruby hues. Nose brings sappy red fruit, strawberry hard candy, and dried, savory herbs. The palate is medium-full and brings nice notes of black cherry, pomegranate, tart raspberries, cinnamon, and blackberry baking spices. The finish is smooth and oaky. At peak now, so drink up if you have any left. Acidity and tannins are tired, but you will enjoy this if you like a fully mature CA Pinot and all of its silky smooth nuances on the palate.
