California, Pinot Noir, Red Wine, San Francisco Bay, San Mateo County, USA

Consumed over the course of two nights. Interesting wine that spans the bridge between old world and new world style. The new world part of this is the rather sweet fruit and polished tannins. I wouldn’t say that it’s cotton candy, but there are definitely shades of brown sugar flavors in the fruit. The old world part of the wine is its ample acidity, stern backbone, and focus of fruit. All in all, a good wine, but I don’t think it’s great. Probably worth the price on the mailing list, but likely not the price in the secondary market.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
