Fun tasting at Weygandt Wines with John Lockwood. The third of four wines being poured and first red. Medium garnet red with a ruby core. A bit singular to start with a medium intensity floral attack. After a few minutes in the class, red berries carried throughout and the floral notes morphed into a spiced finish or white pepper. Medium tannins (5/10) and medium acidity (6/10) on the palate. Light body and fresh. Lots of red berries on the palate; strawberries, raspberries and a touch of rhubarb. Stoney notes and acidity carry from the mid palate through the long and lingering finish. Drink till 2024. This wine is made up of 100% Pinot Noir. 50% whole cluster and aged in neutral hogshead barrels (350L) for 12 months.

I second @Anthony Lombardi below on this, perfect description--deftly charts a course between Burgundian finesse and Cali fruit. Whole cluster tannins and limestone minerality undergird plush cherry, raspberry, rhubarb and flower petals.

Elegant & finessed Pinot. Shows NSG spice, gevrey power and never loses that California fleshy fruit. Has a fantastic tension between acidic brightness and earthy minerality as it opens up. Brilliant stuff.

This was very tight when opened, showing little fruit and all minerals. Day 2, this is much more accessible with raspberries, cranberries, earth and fine tannin.

Still a bit tight, but showing its limestone soils and minty goodness with subtle red fruit. Hoping to have leftovers to check on this on day two, but that might be difficult as it's quite drinkable now.

Another winner, New World terroir without an anaphylactic-shock inducing fruit concentration. Not as stellar as his Syrah but pretty great nonetheless.
