    Jammy. Floral. The simple nose bellies the stealthy flavor...smooth on the tongue and even a bit refreshing with a hint of pepper on the back end. A cab with the soul of a pinot.

    Medium/heavy body yet bold spices. Lovely.

    Fruity opening. Full middle with clove and fig. Clean finish. Buy again.

    Sharp opening. Requires decanting as usual. Clove heavy at first with a steely-prune middle. As it rests on the tongue, it blossoms into a cacophony of spice very true to it's nature. Out fails at the finish too much to be exceptional. It's a lover, not a love.

    Fruit at the tip of the spear giving way to hearty spices and a refined finish.

    Young, fruit-forward at initial opening but responds nicely to 30 minutes of breath. Excellent value.

    2009 Pinot. Full for Pinot. Great finish. Highly recommend. Oh, screw too... makes it a good traveling bottle. Update 2/13. I learned why this has such flavor and the unusual spice note at the finish...ourrs not a true Pinot! It has a mix of Syrah.

    Elegant. Opens a bit buttery and fills in nicely with dark cherry and clove notes. Gift recommend decanting for 30 minutes prior. 91
