    June 19, 2021 - Time makes all the difference...

    Fresh red fruits and soft yet firm tannin has really improved in this specific wine. Red cherry, strawberry and enough oak and earthy goodness made this is a real easy wine to enjoy.

    I do love ROAR and look forward to trying more of their 2018 vintage wines!

    May 2, 2021 - This was an excellent Pinot from Roar and a vineyard source that just keeps on getting better. Very smooth and seamless with pure red fruit that has a note of ripeness that makes it very inviting and a bit more interesting. I really enjoyed this Pinot and it may be my second favorite behind the perennial favorite Roar Pisoni PN. Really offered great mouthfeel and a lovely flavor profile.

    April 1, 2021 - Nose is nicely fruited with a bit of mountain brush....
    Sweet ripe bing cherry, with herbal notes, fine tannins and good acidity.
    Would say it leans a bit sweetness on the experience....not in A bad way
    But in a way that a French Pinot never does....

    February 19, 2021 - This Pinot is fuller bodied than most. The fruit is aged cranberry, cherry & strawberry. There is a hint of oak on the palate as the silky finish lingers. This is a great Pinot if you want a different Pinot that is more ripe cherry fruit forward.
    Enjoy!

    December 29, 2020 - Excellent Pinot showcasing incredible red fruit that is a delight on the palate. Pure and immediately approachable this is singing already. Perfect weight and mouthfeel. I know this is a baby, but what a youngster it is. My only regret is not grabbing more of this one.
