Community Tasting Notes 6

    March 20, 2020 - Plenty of stem presence here. Not overwhelming but strong. Like more interesting Pinots this seems to come and go with different things taking the mic. Sometimes riper baked fruits. Sometimes sweeter fresh fruits. Sometimes stemmy greeness. Sometimes earth and iron. Lighter bodied but with substantial fruit. Solid acidity. This seems open right now. Might be best with some more integration. I can see this for medium term cellaring. But it's not required.

    February 9, 2020 - Bright red fruits and spice on the nose. Very lively mid palate of cherry and strawberry that leads seemlessly to a long finish. This was very pleasurable.

    November 13, 2019 - Prettty translucent garnet color. Lots of upfront red berry fruit--raspberry, strawberry, red plum. You might guess there is a fair amount of acid, here, that gives the wine a lot of liveliness. An excellent sign. An enjoyable. albeit, not, in any way, challenging wine.
