    May 10, 2019 - Decidedly Sexy bouquet, which includes taletell CA sarsparilla, along with sweet pipe tobacco, white pepper, and nuanced Umami. Fairly reminiscent of fine quality Yamhill-Carlton offerings. Fruit forward and open knit. Medium to medium plus acidity. A touch more concentration would and substance would put this over the top. While well made, highly enjoyable, and among the finest CA Pinot Noirs I have tasted, at the price point it should deliver more.

    April 7, 2019 - Pretty much in line with my 12/9/2018 note. Very good. However, to be super nit-picky as this really is a very, very good pinot, near the top of the heap of California pinot's IMO......in thinking about the wine more, while pairing it with a marvelous duck breast, while I very, very much appreciate the constrained nature of this pinot, it simply does not have enough mid-palate heft to match with various traditional pinot friendly foods without being overwhelmed, IMO. There is super bright fruit, which is quite tasty, but so 'fruity' that even it does not match well, it would be nice to have some non-fruit components be a bit more forward (maybe in time?); but then, using the duck as an example, while it went well together, I do feel like the fattiness of the duck (and it was a very well made duck breast) was too much for this pinot. Anyway, again a nit-pic, albeit an important one IMO. None-the-less, bravo to the wine and the style they are shooting for.

    April 5, 2019 - This is a fantastic PN. The acidity and tannins tease you into thinking there’s more alcohol, but it’s only 12.5%. It’s some whole stem/maceration magic, with crunchy, salty, floral elements - and comes together like a Shakespeare plot. It’s also beautiful in the glass with a garnet for the ages. We decanted, and it kept surprising with layers that continued to impress. The bouquet evolved too and expressed poetically. Sad only to have 11 more, but ecstatic there’s more.

    March 16, 2019 - Really delicate nose. Raspberry. Strawberry. Amazing color. Burgundian style for sure. Black tea. Bits of cherry, pepper and citrus.

    March 9, 2019 - Glad I haven't seen somm iii yet, my expectations haven't been tainted.

    Pop and pour, it's a nose of forest floor, raspberry. Initially a bit flat. Perhaps some sweetness? Salinity and umami are present. The fruits are more forward on the palette. But the finish was long and a bit minty. Initially the acid was on prominent and the tannins were fairly mute.

    We kept the bottle chilled, and over the next hour or so, so it oxidated in the bottle...

    As it opened up fruits started to show more. And finally the tannins arrived. Silky and balanced. I kinda wish I'd decanted it... But definitely an enjoyable journey.
