    July 16, 2022 - Light ruby color, clear edges. Aromas of fresh fig & pomegranate, hibiscus tea, allspice berry, clove oil, hints of pine resin. Generous red fruit on the palate, round and textured, with integrated secondary dusty nutmeg and coriander spices. Juicy acid, airy elegant density throughout, with richness and detail and moving toward fleshy fine-grained tannins, finishing with dry elegant fruit and moderately long length. Showing well.

    September 3, 2021 - Very smooth, fruity, and lightly Dijon tang taste at end.

    May 5, 2021 - This is about as good as CA pinot gets, which is remarkable for the price. Medium bodied, silken textured, a hint of bricking at the rim; cooked raspberries, cranberries; a touch of stem; a touch of oak spice. Marred only by some terror-inherent rhubarby/cola/bitterness, but you can't come to Santa Barbara and expect none of that.

    February 28, 2021 - Great and delicate pinot noir. Very light color. Did not evoluate much in the glass after 2-3 hours. Not cheap to buy.
