Matched this with a mushroom pizza at one of my old destinations in Phoenix. Mushroom, earthy and raspberry notes in nose. Raspberry and blackberry in mouth. Tangy, almost lemony in finish. Delightful so far but may open up more

This blend was balanced but lacked single terroir identity so like drinking fine Cognac rather than Almagnac...enjoyable nonetheless.

Dense and dark. Earthy w/ tar. Almost Rhone like.

Still young and wound up, but full of promise, tart fruit and herbal undertones.

Wrapped up tight, even after a good decant. Feels more like a young Burgundy then Cali, but there does seem to be some lovely fruit mixed in with the earth, tea and tannin. Wait.

Smoky and earthy on the nose. Lots of red fruit, strawberry on the palate.

Young version of this wine ... on track to exactly what I like in Cali Pinot noir. Stems, ethereal nose, light weight but with grip.

A transparent pale ruby with a wide brim. The nose speaks to the overall freshness of this baby. Cranberries, raspberries, fresh cut grass, and some mushroom, as well. If the rest of the pour can match the nose this will be fun. Medium, but bright and balanced acidity. In the mouth, there’s tart cherry, light chocolate, more cranberry, and mild oak. A really nice, slightly delicate mouthfeel going on. Long, peppery finish keeps you wanting more. It’s hard to keep up with all the multiple labels but I know all of these wines have been well made and really fun to drink.
