Far different to the last time I had Bon Climat, which was a 2005 last year. This was far more refined and representative of the terroir.

More burgundian than California in its execution, a sideways moment in which we loosen our embrace of the Sonoma Coast, and get our Mind Behind this masterpiece. You should also mind your behind.

Perfect with the last thanksgiving turkey sandwich. Dried berries. Purple in the middle to brown colour at the edges. Medium bodied, no heat, no tannins. Good drinking.

Classic Pinot. Very good. Light and fruity. Only criticism is lack of length. Otherwise delicious.

Smooth and delicious. A hint of spice.
