To me this is like the pinnacle of a sort of bigger style California Pinot.

Very intense nose, explosive even but beautiful too of red fruits, spices and clearly some stems, but not too much and some new oak, which is very prominent on the palate though, the wine is delicious, very open but that oak is not quite digested yet. Good and different, needs time in the bottle. Un nez explosif de fruits rouges, d’épices, très Pinot mais aussi in peu de vendanges entières et surtout du bois neuf, qui est très présent en bouche, c’est bon, ouvert et bien fait mais ce bois n’est pas digéré encore. A besoin de temps en bouteilles. 89-90

Outstanding! Continued to improve throughout the night. Clearly a nuanced baby that would greatly benefit from more time in the bottle.

Absolutely delicious, expressive, Pinot Noir! Translucent ruby red with a clear rim! Medium body, nice cherries, raspberries, cranberries, cardamom, dill and gentle vanilla! Another wine that you discover something new each time you pick up the glass!

If you don't know it, you'll think it's a Burgundy wine. Because I drank this wine in a slightly chilled state, the fullness of the aroma was restrained, but the acidity was noticeable in the delicate palate and the balance was excellent. On the other hand, a little vanilla sweetness comes out as time passes, which is very California.
