The 14s were just released in October and they are stunning. Strong notes of cherry, vanilla and baking spice with undertones of espresso and cola. Drinking great already after a brief decanting (30 mins).

WNH event number 3...new world Pinot. Such a treat to experience the many different variations of Pinot! En mag. Gorgeous red and black fruit, more dominant blackberry and cassis. Licorice too. Starts heavy on the palate but it’s not overwhelming. I got more blueberry notes on this than most of the other pinots of the night which gave this a great sweet note. Coming from a mag, there’s no rush with these but it drank surprisingly well! You are too kind, @Mike R !

Wild berries and cherries, warm earth on the nose but not the palate. Spices and red florals really make their presence known. Nice pop of acidity keeps everything moving

Incredibly well balanced. One of the best California Pinot Noirs I've ever had.

Not as good as before. Much better on night two. Guess this needs for time? Usually these are ready to go from the onset.
