Shows what geography can do to a varietal. It's cooler growing climate give this so much complexity, with tarter fruit but still ripe enough & licorice notes that keep the subtle oak treatment in check. - 05/10/2012

Poopy diaper, soap, ripe cherry, has an appealing tanginess from the acidity, typical of Burgundy, a surprising style for Santa Rita Hills. This & the Siduri were my favorite Pinot's - 05/10/2012

Nice bright cherry and berry with a vanilla coating, a tartness balances both along with the caraway seed that adds to the spicy finish. A lot of thought went into this lovely Russian River Pinot. A new venture from the Far Niente/Nickel & Nickel/Dolce owners. - 05/09/2012

Big, huge right bank nose, green pepper, meat, sour black cherry, mineral, super long finish. A crime, I needed an hour with this wine, and want a case, instead 1 min of bliss had to suffice. A favorite of the evening. - 05/09/2012

Darker cherry & plum fruit, lead pencil. surprising I found this to be softer & more approachable than the Napa Cab., but will reap rewards with cellaring. This & the chardonnay are must try Calif. wines. - 05/09/2012

Wonderful Cherry, plum ,nutmeg & a subtle mesquite like spiciness to the oak meld with tannins that budge, again balance is the word for this lovely Cab. - 05/09/2012

Peach, apricot, huge orange flavors with the same biting acidity you find in balanced Sauterne. It's dry but with just a hint of sweetness. I like my Rieslings to taste like a petrol can, but this is a pleasant exception. - 05/09/2012

Lovely expression,100% Marsanne but perhaps a splash of Roussanne (?), almond, licorice, peach, this is a great value, a summer white for me. - 05/09/2012
