    August 31, 2019 - Dark density in glass continues to nose - cherries and spice

    On palate medium body, lovely acidity would probably be a little too much for drinking alone, totally consistent with nose

    (relative) Bargain buy at SFO winebar

    March 13, 2019 - Sadly, 2017 is the last vintage for Andrew Vingiello and his A.P. Vin label. The '17 Clos Pepe offers a bouquet of Bing cherries, dark plums, mulling spices and cocoa. Medium-bodied and somewhat sweet on the attack, it is very soft-textured by virtue of its low-to-medium acidity, seamless alcohol (14.2%), silky tannins and nicely integrated oak. Dense in the middle and medium in length on the back end, this is a pleasant Pinot that would benefit from a bit more acid. Drink now-2023.

    January 23, 2019 - Wow, finally an AP that lives up to Wine Spectator's reviews. Not that greatest aroma. But it makes up for it in taste. Big fruit at first sip, gets your attention. More berries, especially raspberry finish. Clean, fresh, relaxing.

    November 24, 2018 - Opened 6 hours. Simply put big and sweet up front. 2nd favorite of the Pinot Noir's behind Aston Estate 15' PN.

    November 10, 2018 - Right out of the bottle this has tartness and lively acidity, literally eye cringing. I let sit for 2 hours and the wine delivers you so much more.

    Terrific acidity, plum, ripened strawberry burgeoning on rotted, some prune. Finish is more prune and some dried fig.
