Agree with Phredd's note but has gained depth and complexity since tasting in 2013. Paid $44 from winery.......in line with value brought by this wine. I have three more left which will be consumed within the next year. This is in its perfect drinking window as I don't see this getting any better than it is right now. Drink up!
Bright ruby, mostly opaque. Very pronounced sweet red fruit aroma...respberry, strawberry, cherry, with just a touch of oak and a slight acetic component. Full of bright red fruit flavors, no noticeable tannin, nicely balanced acidity. Medium body. Nice long, sweet aftertaste.This is perfectly ready, wouldn't age it any more for fear of losing some of its bright fruit. Time to enjoy! Ric
Medium brick-red, just a hint of brown at the edges, surprising for such a young wine. Medium-dark for a pinot noir. Typical varietal aromas of red fruits with sweet spices and subtle oak, showing some complexity. Medium body, no significant tannin, slightly more concentrated and complex flavors than their Russian River Valley, Fairly long, slightly hot aftertaste. A very nice wine, perfectly drinkable, doubt it will improve with age. Overpriced, though, at $48 from the winery. Ric
