American Pinot - a much needed education: well hello CALI Pinot. This is easily the biggest wine in the group. cherry cola and warm spices. ripe but balanced. Touch of the syrah-ish feel to it but only a touch. Ripe chewy mid. Almost tannic - and showing extremely young. Earthy mid. core of ripe fruit and a long finish with some zing. Whats not to love?? Perhaps not for the light-hearted but who cares? This is an excellent wine, big bold and soooo yummy. With all the great wines today - if i had to pick one to drink now - this would be my #2. Just pure pleasure.
American Pinot - a much needed education: easily the youngest of the 5 - and not just by age. Lost of structure that needed time - especially on the first night. Day 2 was calmer - and cleaner. Raspberry and sour cherry, floral notes - roses, def a Cali profile though light and sleek. mid has great balance of ripe cherry and acidity. long finish with a hint of sweet fruit and spice. Lovely stuff. glad to have held on to it. showing much more youthful than the Green Valley we had a few days ago. YUM
