Ahhhh-mazing RR Pinot, light and lovely. Brining home all the flavors indicative of the region but so well balanced compared to many neighbors.

The epitome of a delightful "yes" Calizen.

More complex and better balanced than most Cali Pinots I've had, but still marked by the brown sugar sweetness of which I'm not fond.

This tasted like it was 10 years old, not 5. Really well balanced, cherry and strawberries, and not overly bearing for California fruit!

My second tasting of this wine over the last week, but first formal notes. Both bottles needed 30 minutes to blow off some funk, but after that it's all good. Cloudy ruby with an amber bend. Spiced red fruits of pomegranate, plum, and sour cherry dominate, but a supporting cast of wilted lavender, herbal tea, and tilled earth give this depth. Goes from good to great with tertiary notes of beef bouillon, rhubarb, and porcini mushroom. I couldn't stop thinking that this is more Burgundian than anything I've ever had from Oregon, never mind RRV. Lots of acid and a heady 14% abv is certain to divide a crowd, but it's a must try for fans Oregon and Burgundy.

Deep earth aroma. From the peer bog arise. Takes you head on as a Pinot. surprising depth and worthy of second notice. string blackberry from start to conclusion. Enjoyable but will not tolerate lack of two way engagement.

Light color, perfume nose filled with raspberry fruit. Not heavy, nice clean finish
