Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesThe beauty of this attractive effort lies in its nicely focused, well-ripened, medium depth fruit and in its supporting richness. It is open in aroma and supple in mouthfeel, and it is a comfortable, inviting wine at virtually every stop. It shows that pleasing Pinot need not be flamboyant, dramatic or oversized and earns it high marks for manners, not bombast.
