Classic SRHPN. Lean, stemmy, lighter side. Cherry, cranberry, earth, pine, cinnamon, subtle french barrel usage, transparent palate. Definitely some whole cluster in there. Good stuff. A steal at Costco for $22. Looking forward to trying it again tonight.

Crimson color, decent fruit but lightweight soft style, some tannic grip but not much. I prefer the estate version of Melville's Pinot (which is well worth the extra $5).

Awesome nose, wanted more on the palate... Nice subtle meaty jerky note too

I learned after the first bottle this big California Pinot needs at least an hour's decanting before it hits your lips. Much more well-balanced with excellent earth and cherry notes.

Extremely light, even for a Pinot. Raspberry and mineral. A bit bitter on the finish. This is definitely a food wine. Nicely done
