(2012 Vintage) Very dense and superconcentrated, this offers an impressive mix of dense blackberry, raspberry and huckleberry, holding its focus and maintaining its supple texture.
Tasting immediately at opening at 55 degrees had a musty aroma and complex taste. It evolved to a new world, fruit forward Cali Pinot that could stand alone or complement food. 15-30 mins to open up with black cherry focus.
biggest tasting Pinot - came across like a big Cali zin. flavours of leather and chocolate (and cigar, and sweaty horse, but my friends did not appreciate that association).
Dark, jammy, full on the nose of cassis and dark fruits..needs to breath for 30 mins. Firm tannins with amazing restraint. Long finish.
Drank this playing cards with dawn and mike. Loved it. Nice cherry.
Really enjoyed this wine. Enjoyed on Christmas Eve.
Big, fruity Pinot. Leans toward a Syrah.

Wine & Spirits(2008 Vintage) This spectacular Pinot, which defines its South Coast terroir, is a great wine. The extracted fruit is massive, flooding the palate with cherries and raspberries, and the wine is well-oaked. Yet it combines its power with regal grace, which is what Pinot is supposed to do. Finishes with a silky, velvety harmony. Really an eye-opening wine, superb in every respect.
