Community Tasting Notes (27) Avg Score: 90.5 points

  • Medium dark red color. PNP, aerated into glasses. Drank 2+ glasses over 2+ hours. Cherry, spice and subtle dry earth on the nose. The palate has medium body, black cherry, dry earth, oak and briar. The tannins are moderate and medium grained. There is alcohol that shows onthe medium finish. Very good but I hoped for more complexity. 90 (+?)pts.

  • A nice Pinot with cherry and earth on the nose and palate. Somewhat big, but no tannin. I think it could use a few years to soften.

  • Absolutely delicious. Loved bY all the wine drinkers at a paella (seafood) dinner. Bouquet of fruit and savory. Cherry taste on pallet very evident but also with a savory border which made it quite delicious tannins present but mostly hidden. Good aftertaste. Went very well with Paiea my wife states that it became somewhat neutral with the paella which complemented it. This was a magnum shared by six diners.

  • Dark color, beautiful nose, decent structure, red fruits with a strong earthy mid-palate. Balance was somewhat off and finish did not impress.

  • this is a big volumptuous pinot, that at first taste, was bordering on a fruit bomb. I felt like it needed a heavily spiced steak to give it something to go with. On 2nd and 3rd day, this started to show other aspects, and while still juicy - in the blackberry, blueberry vein, there was enough intrigue of spice, earth, and subtle acids that it pulled it together. I don't think I would re-but as this isn't my style of wine, but certainly well done if you are a fan of this.
