This is a good Pinot Noir. While it’s not an ager because it’s made for immediate consumption, it does show an elegant structure. Crisp acidity provides balance to the cola, cherry, pomegranate, spice and smoky vanilla flavors.
Oak dominates this wine, in the form of vanilla, caramel and buttered toast. Under that are simple but tasty flavors of cherries and raspberries. It’s a silky, creamy Pinot Noir for drinking now.
With soft, easy tannins and barely noticeable acidity, this easy little Cab lacks structural integrity. It’s very ripe and rich in cherries, blackberries and anise, but the lightness lowers the point score.
Lots of ripe cherry, chocolate, cola, anise and sandalwood flavors in this Pinot. It’s a little sweet and simple, but likeable for its silky texture and crisp, coastal acidity. Ready now.
