The nose reveals bright red floral fruits with blue fruit hues. Strawberries, bright dark cherries & cherries, dry cranberries, pomegranate and blueberries. Vanilla, cinnamon stick, dark rich soil, limestone minerals with blue and red florals. The body is medium. Strawberries, bright dark cherries & cherries, dry cranberries, pomegranate, touch of plum, and blueberries. Vanilla, cinnamon stick, dark rich soil, limestone minerals with blue and red florals. The acidity is like a waterfall. The long finish still needs to flush out but is delicious and shows very good promise for a better score in 3-5 years. Photos of; the Joseph Phelps Sonoma facility now just used for production and no longer open for visitors, the lounge area of Joseph Phelps Napa visitor center, Pastorale Pinot grapes and their Pastorale Pinot Vineyard.

Fruits are ripe and bright. Big light and dark cherries, strawberries dry cranberries, pomegranate juice. Good sharp chalkiness and volcanic minerals.

Cherry, pomegranate, and dried orange body notes. A little too spicy, this should rest a few years. Deep purple body fades to rose

Fantastic ruby red color in the glass. Great nose of rose petals and spice. Flavors of red plum, pomegranate and dried cherries on the palate. A very nice finish with fruit and spice overtones. A nice wine.

Scott and I enjoyed the three points from JP back to back. This is by far the most elegant. Yum earthy and thick fruit
