Purchased a 1.5 L bottle in order to get hammered! But...first a subjective analysis. There is nothing immediately offensive about this noir, but this stuff is not stable--certainly not complex. Incredibly thin stuff, even for the variety. Smooth enough, but not refined. Absolutely nothing wrong purchasing this magnum bottle in order to get shithoused.

Garnet-brown color. Light, smoky nose, began smooth for a brief moment before ultimately becoming hot in the mouth and at the back of the throat. Not very balanced at all. Preferred the Mirassou Pinot I tried at the same time which was much smoother.

I have to say , this wine is .... is .... just terrible . Good color , but an aroma that is all citric and a taste that is salty and just really unbalanced . Full of tanine and with an acid aftertaste . Use it only to prepare sangrias or avoid it at all costs . I give it one wine glass out of five .

The best pinot noir I have tasted from California. Rivals the pinots from the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia and far superior to the Oregon pinots that I have tried

Most of the fruit for this cooler climate Pinot Noir comes from Sonoma County. The brilliant cherry and raspberry flavors, coupled with herbs and spice plus a touch of sweet oak on the finish, make it a nice match with lighter fare such as grilled fish and chicken.

A terrific wine at a giveaway price, this coastal bottling shows a rich, complex texture and is very dry. The flavors unfold one by one on the palate: cherries, cocoa, cola, plums, blackberries and spices are highlighted by a burst of crisp acids.

The bright raspberry and cherry aromas are followed by delicate fruit flavors and balanced with soft vanilla and toasty oak characteristics to create a structured Pinot Noir with elegance and style.

A bit divisive among our panelists, with one finding it rather light and lacking in intensity, while others found virtue in its understated yet varietally correct nature. Cola and cherry flavors finish clean and fresh.

Well-balanced for the vintage, with tasty plum, black cherry, anise and cola flavors that are focused.

This bright and frisky pinot has no airs about it, just good, fragrant juice, spicy and clean, ready for salmon or steak.

Serves up a tasty core of ripe, plump plum and black cherry, turning round and smooth, with only a mild tannic grip on the finish and a flash of toasty oak. Drink now.
