    How do you capture in words the wonderful sensation of drinking a fine Pinot Noir? Lush and velvety. Immensely pleasurable. This typifies a fine Pinot Noir and is what I try to achieve when I have the pleasure of making them.
    I feel that our HRM Rex-Goliath Pinot Noir is all that and a bit more. The aromas are characteristic of the cool Central coast vineyards that yielded the majority of the grapes for this wine. Red berry perfume with a touch of cinnamon spice, wrapped in a blanket of subtle French oak. Breathe it in. This is one of Pinot Noir's great pleasures. The taste is pure Pinot, too. Mouth-filling overripe raspberry and cherry flavors. Soft and supple are a few of the descriptors I would use. The wine exhibits a velvet finish due to the soft tannins and understated acidity.
    I'm told that it is quite difficult to find a nice Pinot Noir for under ten dollars. That's why we're particularly proud of this wine. It means that you can either bring home a second bottle for about what you'd pay for one bottle of many other Pinot Noirs, or put the extra savings into a nice dinner of salmon steaks with garlic mashed potatoes (one of my favorite Pinot foods), or try duck confit on a bed of roasted garlic and steamed spinach greens. - Winemaker Michael KafkaHRM Rex Goliath Pinot Noir receives Gold Medal at 2006 San Francisco International Wine Competition!

    Not bad at all, for the price.

    Black cherry color, not overly fruity, dry for a Pinot

    Very nice Pinot Noir. Light and good tannins on the finish.
