    May 11, 2019 - Not as fruit forward or complex as some other Clos Pepe vintages, but really tasty!

    April 16, 2019 - Last minute replacement, as the planned wine was corked. This is dangerously drinkable, with luscious black fruit, a touch of vanilla, and a kick of spice on the finish. Yummy, which is, as well we’ll know, the winemaker’s intention!

    December 15, 2018 - Very nice pinot. Despite being young it drank like a mature wine. The wine was inky in color and almost had so much fruit that it tasted like a zinfandel. Long legs, blueberry notes and very fruit forward. Could use a few years to mellow the moderate tannins. Very nice wine.

    February 18, 2018 - Falltacular 2018--some TNs (My House In The South OC): Opened yesterday, kept cool overnight under opened screwcap. Brian has been making this wine for a long time, and it's been a while since I have sat down and tasted it, especially with some air. Black cherry, ripe/juicy blackberry, dark raspberry, cinnamon, cedar and a finishing citrusy note of blood orange/grapefruit. More modern and forward for PN than what I usually drink but it's squarely spot-on for what Brian has done so well now for well over a decade. I love this guy Loring and his commitment to make wines in the style he believes in and does so well.
