Community Tasting Notes (5) Avg Score: 90.3 points

  • This wine hits every cylinder of seductive Pinot Noir at its California best. Very inviting purple color. Fragrant black fruit that streams out of the glass. Rich, deep, and delicious black cherry fruit that fills the mouth, is buoyed by ample acidity and tannins, caressed by a silky texture, and endures throughout an aftertaste minutes long.

  • Was really lean and green with 1st opened which I really liked. After decanting for a bit it has more earthy fruit, baking spices but sitll some forest floor and a finish that lingered nicely.

  • Dark ruby, bordering on purple in color, this wine shows intense aromatics of cherry, raspberry, smoke and spice on the nose. The mouth feel brought a silky, smooth texture, framing the red fruits. The finish was medium in length and brought an unexpected burn, leaving this taster wondering if the abv was higher than the 13.7% as stated on the label.

    Purchased for a nicely discounted price of $21US, this is a well made wine that is fairly big in style. It paired well with hard cheeses and charcuterie tonight. Recommended with meat, not fish. Also, the heat of the alcohol throws this wine a little of out balance but still enjoyable.

  • Pretty good, needs more time in cellar, sweetness and tannins aren't integrated
