Strawberry, pomegranate & spice that I could definitely see holding up another 15 yrs. time to get another bottle.

Wow, will this wine be singing in 8-10 years. Terrior is already peeking through. Just as impressive as at the winery a few months back. Enjoyed with rack of lamb and Branzino at Bottega in Yountville.

It's a lean young Pinot with pedigree. Still not knitted together. Big acidity. Lot of oak. A bit of cardamom.

Love this producer. Cali heritage in a bottle. Time is on their side with this one.

I did not keep formal notes. From memory - quite burgundian - wild strawberry - and despite 14.5% super elegant and light. Clearly not a typical California Pinot but a Beauty in it’s own right.
