The youthful nose is estery and oaky with spice, smoke and licorice tones yet in the mouth this is easy but balanced in a big, acid driven style. It's a fleshy wine with nice flavors that feature a touch of sweet herb and vanilla framing big, sweet fruit. It's a fruit bomb and while not my style is a very appealing and popular style and this should be a big hit with many people. drink 2009-2012 88pts

    A good wine, not great. Very drinkable. Not as smooth as some other California Pinots I've had. (Byron) Seemed a little too acidic for my taste. Overall OK.

    Very much a fruit bomb, but still, surprisingly, contains a high level of acid when hitting the palate. Extremely approachable, as the acid dissipates quickly, yet not anything spectacular after that occurs. The nose is overly acidic throughout, finish is short and bitter at first, but mid-palate is delightful, enough to justify buying this bottle. Finish strengthens after some time open. Strawberry, cherry and a hint of tobacco. Good with light fare (lamb, etc.), average on its own. Give it another year+ in the bottle. 86-88 points.

    Lively and exciting. Ripe red cherry and raspberries are often in the nose. This crisp, textured Pinot is accented by an earthy flavor that runs through the pallet. Soft and supple tannins finish this bright, fruit-driven wine.

    Wine Tasting NotesOur Pinot Noir bursts with aromas and flavors of dried cherry, vanilla, cinnamon, and earth, with a rich lingering mouthfeel. A versatile wine, this Pinot Noir complements meals of salmon, lamb, poultry and grilled vegetables. Superb now, best enjoyed after a few years in the cellar.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Many people are surprised to find that this microclimate is created by the influence of the distant Atlantic Ocean. Less well known than Burgundy and Champagne, it is similarly characterized as being a perfect climate for cool-weather varietals such as Pinot Noir. Delicate spice, exotic aromas with strawberries, sandalwood and vanilla, this is a remarkably elegant and complex Pinot Noir that represents the perfect balance of structure, fruit and oak so that the personality of the wine shines through naturally.
