  • First time to try this producer and I was impressed. Rich without being over the top. Nice notes of cherry and a long finish. In a good spot and complex enough that I would recommend.

    Tasted blind as part of Blind Pinot Tasting.

    Garnet to dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of barnyard, black berries and black cherries. Flavors of red raspberries, berries and cherries. Medium to tart acidity, medium tannin, medium to full bodied. Drink or hold.

    My guess was this is a California Pinot Noir. Unclear on vintage or producer.

    This wine came in 5th place out of 14 wines with 10 tasters participating giving an average score of 90.80.

  • Tasted blind in a lineup of 14 double blind pinots. Slow-oxed 3-4 hours prior to kickoff. Nice red fruit profile on the nose and palate with some spice mixed in. Very tannic at this stage with a medium to long length finish. Give this one some more time in the bottle. Was the group's #5 wine.

  • Drank from a crappy hotel stem, yet it showed it's stripes as solid as if we had a nice Reidel for it. Also, drank at room temp and yet it hung right in there, a credit to the wine. Bit of funk, black cherry acidity, blackberry and some strawberry lingering. Some vanilla and cola nut linger in the finish, so it adds a little sexy quality to the wine and so it rounds out well. Lovely.
