  • this is a fun wine with a burgundian lighter style of winemaking that brings out the richness of pinot noir without the heaviness of other styles.

  • Beautiful ruby color, smoky but soft and refined. Absolutely hitting its stride.

  • Cloudy red out of the bottle. Campfire and some wet leaves come through on the nose. Popped and poured and followed for a couple hours. There's definitely quite a bit of smoke in the mouth but the fruit is there in a complementary sense. Fairly light-bodied with light-medium tannins. Didn't change much in the time we drank it. If you're sensitive to smoke steer clear. If you're not, this is a perfectly enjoyable wine for those seeking to avoid full-bodied new world pinots.

  • A gift from a friend who is ITB on the french side of things. Popped and poured. Right out of the gate, you notice that there is none of that cola/funk that is so common in Cali pinots. For me, that's a plus. Thne principal flavor components are spice and minerals, with fruit being a secondary component. There's pepper and allspice with cherry in the background and maybe a tiny bit of strawberry even further behind that. My personal preference is a bit more fruit and that would bring this wine into the outstanding category. Whoever wrote the note in CT that there are $10 Cali pinots that are as good needs to get his taste buds checked for diminished functionality. This is not a fruit bomn, not that I dislike fruit bombs, but its got nice balance and a very pleasant overall taste profile with no negative characteristics.
