Bright acidity with pure raspberry fruits. A touch of cinnamon spices, but very very green on the after taste. This wine is made in a style despite what they say.

Solid, but there's some wonky nature to the acidity that is distracting. Pretty basic.

Christmas week wines! Nice and easy! Cali Pinot for sure, but a bit more restraint on the fruit and a bit more acid.

Sandalwood and red fruits. Slightly reductive tone, but very food friendly. Lots of acid and tannin. Eaten with duck confit meat pie and coulotte steak and paired well with both

Juicy, big fruit with hint of charcoal but not overly sweet. Great balance. Happy to try this wine finally.

2012 Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir. Terroir driven with great acidic backbone.
