Love this Pinot. Cherry, light red fruits and a light hint of cola. Very enjoyable and not overly complex, but a great wine for the price

Fruit bomb, with loads of raspberry. Hints of leather, cedar and fresh hillside dirt. Decent finish and mid palate pleaser as fruit is fresh and plentiful

Wine was almost opaque in color. The smoky earthy hints were great and accented with the dark fruits and Cassis. Must decant due to sediment.

Out or this world. Dark fruits - blackberry and blueberry abound. 90 second finish with layered depth. Great deep red hue, graphite and Cassis notes. Crazy good

Dark red color. Has tons of room to grow. Dark fruits, light smoke and cedar, with hints of cassis and pencil shavings. Medium body, strong tannins and nice finish in its youth

Dark fruits, cola, some chocolate and definitely Spring mountain dirt. A little more acidic than other Pinot I have had. Finish is decent but prefer Oregon Pinot

Coffee, blackberry and dark chocolate with overtones of mushrooms and light earthiness. Decent on the mid palate, with 45 second finish. Very good wine in an off year, but they make great wine

Had company so started with a couple of bottles of this decent Caldwell effort. Light red fruit, ripe cherry and cola in a medium red garnet wine. The wine showed well with appetizer course of hot artichoke dip. The value is not as great with this pinot but a good wine to start an evening with

Solid performer for the price. Barn smell aromas as a true Bordeaux, with medium red fruits, light plum and licorice. Finish was decent, and color was medium red garnet.

Blackberry, plum, granite and earthy soil. Very fruit forward but a must decant to get to that point. Finish to me was not as promising as the nose leads you to, but the wine was very good for the price

Wanted to try and check in on this wine. Other vintages have been great and this does not disappoint. Dark fruits and almost opaque in color. Nose of cassis, pencil lead and deep earthiness. Lasting finish of 30 seconds.

Wine is a beast. Dark fruits somewhat muted at the onset but fly through after 30 minutes opened and decanted. Pencil shavings, loamy mountainside floor and cassis give way to lasting 45 second finish. Glad I have one bottle left to try with big steak or duck

5 months on the light pepper scent and taste has gone away to reveal medium red fruits and more baking spice. Hints of crushed flowers too.

Mellowed tannins, very fruit forward. Dark fruit (blackberry and overripe blueberry), with leather and graphite hints on the nose. Lasting 30 second finish and very enjoyable - with age will improve

Last wine of the night. Nicely balanced, flavorful, and full of dark fruit. Deep Garnet color, 30 second finish and tons of minerality throughout. I think another year or 2 in the bottle will help it

Medium plus nose has blackberry, cassis, graphite, coffee, black pepper, earth tones, nicely unique. High complexity at the onset, lots of dark fruit layers, and medium plus tannins are smooth. Very balanced and is spot on even with the huge layers. Leave it settle and specially at the price you want to drink it too soon.

Birthday wine. Dark color, dark fruits, and pencil lead at the onset. Then mushrooms and loamy soils give way to a powerhouse wine. After 1 hour in the decanter the wine was extremely approachable. Great finish and glad we decanted as sediment was high

Diamond mountain fruit shining brightly in this youthful wine. Essence of baking spice, flowers and volcanic soils give way to a nice blend with a good solid finish. Medium to dark red in color

Great deep red color for a wine at its peak. Cassis, graphite, stones and loamy soil abound. Tannins have settled and smooth, with a 30 second finish on the back end., Outstanding with a cowboy rib eye

Grilled halibut as the accompaniment was perfect. The wine was light straw color, with melon, green apple and unripe pear coming through. Light spice on the back end, with a crisp non-oak finish. Drinking optimally right now

Crazy good at this young stage and excited to see what the future brings. Oakville dust envelopes the dark fruits, graphite, pencil lead a umami of the wine. 45 second finish and super color.

minimal oak which is a reason for my higher score. Sour melon, candied lemon and smooth finish in this golden colored wine. No oak or vanilla to speak of and held up well with spicyfood

Beautiful young wine and will get better with another year or 2. Hints of spice, dark fruit, crushed flowers lead to a full mouth coating wine that has balanced finish. Dark red garnet color

See prior notes - just massive brooding wine that must be decanted to aerate and remove sediment. Wonderful dark fruits, cassis, limestone and shale with lasting finish

Dark fruits, smoky overtones and very dark red color. Excellent on the mid palate and finished nicely. Decant due to higher sediment and it will open beautifully
