This is great stuff. It isn’t as good as the Bize I had the night before, but this performed extremely well with a piece of Copper River Sockeye Salmon and accoutrements. Cherries, bark, mushroom, and Asian spices. Good finish. This is not even at the drinking plateau yet. Has years left in reserve. Some of the most impressive domestic Pinot Noir I’ve ever tasted.

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.
