love it! very nice balance of fruit (cherry and raspberry), tannins (very mellow and soft) and acidity (bright, but not overly so). This has aged really nicely, and now anxious to try one of the Califa's in the cellar as well. Not sure this gets any better with more age, and actually approaching the closing end of the drinking window. Well done.
Nose: Sour Cherry, Plum, Rhubarb and Herbs. Palate: Slightly spritzy, Raspberry, Cherry, slight Cola flavor underlying the fruit. Strong acids took a while to balance out, but nice spicy pinot emerged. Finish: Moderate with a berries and rhubarb dominating. Mushrooms and earthy forrest floor flavors emerge on the finish. I agree that this wine was nicer in its youth. Drink up.
