  • Weird funky nose which blew off after about 20 minutes morphing into a really nice wine which was still drinking beautifully way after it's end date.

  • Spicy raspberry, cherry and typical cola flavors. Good fresh acid balance. Very nice Pinot. My bootle must have been much better than the last few tasters.

  • (tastes better with an ice cube or two in the glass...). This is another one of those over the top (too ripe) Cali Pinots that favors hitting you over the head, punching you in the nose, banging your head against the wall, over finess, style, grace and beauty. (tastes better with an ice cube or two in the glass to water it down...). Big ripe fruity prune laden coca cola smelling (and tasting) fruit bomb. On the palate its all BIG STUFF but lacks acid. Felt like I chewed on a 2x4 piece of wood (only the finest oak for these fancy boys) with ripe grapes tossed in (tastes better with an ice cube or two in the glass to water it down and bring out a few of the other elements...).

    You can't seriously drink this wine with food but its too over the top BIG to drink on its own so what to do? What to do? Put a few ice cubes in the glass before you pour a swig! What a novel idea. I should have thought of that earlier.

    After last night's big tuckus and tonight's big planker I am going to have to retreat to something alpine or Italian tomorrow evening just to save my palate and restore my faith in wine-kind. Paul Hobbs - you may be considered a great wine maker (and no doubt you probably are!) but PLEASE lighten up, add some spice, a little grace and beauty. Please.

    Otherwise Oregon is going to EAT YOUR LUNCH...........

  • Experts say it may be past its prime but we found this while taking inventory and think it is still a very respectable Pinot.
