Mouth feel is soft but not velvety. Flavor consistent throughout the palette. Tastes of dark, dried black cherry with a finish of chalk and pencil lead to me. (I know that doesn't sound like pinot but its what I'm getting) Not necessarily a favorite of mine. It is a wine that is on the down slope but probably had a wow factor when it was younger.

    September 3, 2012 - dark strawberry, rasberry and blackberry, with very soft tannins. A more full bodied pinot noir -- almost syrah like.

    March 11, 2012 - A deep dark and syrah like pinot noir with dark fruit and deep spice notes, luxurious mouthfeel and long finish. Ready now! Lost much of its fruit on day 2, even with gas in the bottle. Drink this one up on the first night.

Plenty of Central Coast barnyard aromas. Dark in color for a Pinot that drinks this cleanly. The wine is beautifully made. The perfect balance of richness, acid, and tannic length. Very pure pinot flavors. This wine is very good. I'm on the hunt for more. Priced correctly in the mid 30 dollar range.
