    January 1, 2015 - This wine is way more pure and elegant that I was even expecting.. (the last time I tasted it was at the winery 6 years ago). gorgeous, fresh, elegant, cool on the palate and in a great place.. best in 3 years.. wish I had more... love it, If only more people chose to make RRV Pinot like this. so great with lamb stew. I love their wines. Jon Bonne can keep talking about the "New California", but Doug Nalle has been doing this for a long time.. along with a bunch of other folks.. great.. and I usually only drink their Zinfandel.

    January 7, 2013 - Really delicious this time around bringing perfect red fruit and herbal spice with comforting acid and earth on the finish. Dude can make some beautifully cool and restrained wine..

    November 18, 2011 - Cranberry, red taffy, sweet cream gains a milk chocolate aspect with some air. Great balanced leathery acidity, herbal kick on the finish.

    July 30, 2011 - Cherry/passion fruit taffy nose, bordering on artificially sweet, sweet cream, underlying spices. Less concocted on the palate, nicely polished, red fruit, very herbal--dill and tea leaf, sweet finish.
