Very impressed with this wine. Rich, balanced, velvety, long finish. Note to self - buy more.

I have to say that this is one of the most delightful fruit forward pinots I've ever had. I personally tend to prefer a woodsy, earthy pinot noir, but this wine won me over with (or despite) its layers of berries, in part because the fruit was so true and rich and in part because there was ample spice for balance.

From the first sip to the last (one night later, held refrigerated and then brought to proper temp), I found strawberry, cherry, cola, cinnamon and vanilla in lovely proportion to each other, and a nice lingering finish.

I would strongly recommend this wine at my purchase price of $25ish, or even at considerably more.

Just plain always pleased with a Ty Caton, regardless of varietal. To me, this lovely zin had cherry, light licorice, black pepper and clove. Delicious with the spicy sausage dish we had for dinner, and equally nice all by itself later in the evening.

Takes a long time to open up, but worth the wait when properly decanted. Complex, with blackberry, tea and oak. Might be some eucalyptus, or that may be the Vick's VaporRub wafting from #3 child's room. I'll hold the next bottle for a bit longer in light of the relatively tight structure and firm tannins, but it is a very pleasant drink right now.

Seems to me the color is just about right for a pinot. I tasted overripe plums in silk, with pepper and a background earthiness that married perfectly with our mushroom-triple creme soup and crustinis. Not prone to scoring: too unsophisticated a palate and too disinterested in the objectivity required to judge fairly, but I enjoyed it enough that I won't be giving my last bottle of this away, even to my nicest hosts or hostesses. And I'm reasonably generous by nature.
