The wine was super acidic and vinegary. Mouth puckering sour! I am hoping that this was a bad bottle. Read more

This is a bit high toned with fine herb and floral aromas over strawberry fruit and fragrant French oak, though it does show some heat on the nose. There's a lot to this wine, too much for the lowish acidity and soft tannins to handle. The alcohol sticks out early in the mouth and the fruit lacks freshness and seems to be a bit cooked. The alcohol really becomes obtrusive on the back end and onto the short, bitter finish. 78pts

Brighter than I thought it would be. Beautiful ruby color. Finish didn't hold up. Little disapointing.

The 2010 Riviera Pinot is light ruby in color, with a lovely nose of cherry, cranberry, blackberry, Asian spice, and gunpowder. The palate is rich and layered, with powerful flavors of black cherry, blackberry, sassafras and spice. The finish turns lighter with raspberry flavors lingering overtop of earthy, rustic tannins that will lengthen with time. - WineryCooperage:10 months in barrel; 30% new French oakTechnical Data:Alcohol: 14.7% by volumeCases Produced: 10,500 ** SOLD OUT **

This new Pinot is really lovely with fresh Raspberry notes and soft fruit aromas. It is all gentle and soft with great purity and noticeable mineral notes. The finish is clean and lightly spicy. A great every day Pinot noir at bargain price.

Captivating aromas of candied cherry and blackberry intertwine with subtle hints of violets, thyme and wild game. On the palate, this wine quickly shows a strong structural component, later releasing flavors of fresh red raspberries and bright Bing cherries, intertwined with espresso and held together by modest sweet oak. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
