Really well rounded Pinot Noir. Characteristic aromas of the varietal of red fruits and flowers, lavender and a slight smell of roses. Soft to the mouth with round smooth tanins. Definitively worth it.

Deep purple color with medium intensity. Vanilla on the nose with some fruit though difficult to pick out due to an evident alcohol presence. Maybe a bit of chocolate. Pleasant medium palate with a softness on the mid palate, though the finish burns a bit with a slight tannic astringency. Will leave it open and try some more in an 1/2 hour. 1 hr later a bit of barnyard and more chocolate, and sour cherry aromas. Still hot on the finish, probably would benefit from some food. Not bad though I'm interested in what might happen with an hour or two more open. [NR]

"Black cherry fruit with velvety tannins typically found in hillside grapes along the North Coast combine with flavors of blackberry jam and currant from Monterey County. Oak aging adds hints of vanilla, cola and a soft, smoky finish." Randy Ullom, Wine

The 2009 Vintner's Reserve Pinot Noir is 100% Pinot Noir, all from estate vineyards, that is aged nine months in 95% French barrels (15% new). Notes of plum sauce, cranberries, earthy red cherries and loamy soil result in an authentic Pinot Noir tasting effort. Medium-bodied, soft and delicious, it should drink well for 2-4 years.

From the very good '99 California Pinot vintage, here's an affordable and elegant choice, offering pleasant black cherry and red currant flavors that are round, firming up on the finish, where the tannins show their strength. Drink now through 2004.

A fine everyday Pinot Noir with some extra features that boost the score. With hints of mint, white pepper and chamomile tea, the wine shows racy flavors of cherries, cola, raspberries and sandalwood. Made mainly with Monterey and Santa Barbara fruit.

Shows real Pinot character in the light silkiness, nice acidity, and flavors of cherries, cream and vanilla spice. If you're just starting to get into the variety, this is a good intro.

The nose is pinot, with an appealing smoky, black cherry aroma and bits of steeped tea. The mid-palate is rich and round, with more smoky black fruit and fine structure. Winemaker Randy Ullom adds a dash of syrah to the blend to bolster the mid-palate and add some complexity, and it seems to work just fine. Impressive for the price. - Anthony Gismondi ** SOLD OUT **

K-J has a good track record for a varietally true Pinot Noir with their Vintner's Reserve bottling, and they've held the price steady for years. It's a fairly basic Pinot, elegantly silky and dry, with cola, cherry and vanilla flavors.
