Rich fruity central coast #Pinot that has some Loire style tendencies imo

Mouth-puckering, with dark fruit flavors, quite a dichotomy. #ojaivineyard #pinotnoir

Fine, filigreed and vibrant. Little red fruits, forest floor, cola. Charming, yet showing enough structure to warrant 3-4 years in a good cellar.

Very pleasant. Opened up to have a real nice depth of flavors. Ordered at Rioja in Denver, CO.

Really great terroir and balance. Would fool you for OW. Pretty thin though.

A true entry level benchmark of a Californian Pinot Noir done in the Burgundian style.
Clear, bright, and light in Garnet exhibiting delicate aromas of red currant, lightly composted leaves, jasmine, and cinnamon.
The wine finishes dry with an ample spice, fruit, and mocha finish.
If you are looking for Meiomi or the ilk, this is NOT your wine.

Milder body for a California Pinot noir, a little spice, nice finish.
