This was a bit disappointing. I picked up a bottle when visiting the vineyard in 2008, and had enjoyed their wines. But this came across (admittedly after a couple of other bottles between 3 of us, and initially a little cool) as a bit simple. Very blueberry and blackberry-driven, and although not soupy or over-sweet, it didn’t have quite the freshness to be a great Pinot Noir. Not as overdone as some California Pinots, but still lacking something in the complexity and balance stakes…
