This is definitely a Californian as opposed to a Burgundian Pinot Noir. And that's alright with me.
Deep garnet. Aromas of fresh strawberries, rhubarb and ginger. Smells like the strawberry rhubarb jam made at my local bakery. Ripe fruit at the front and all the way back. Nothing shy about this wine. Maybe not as complex as some of the Pinots from Russian River and Anderson Valley I have had recently, but very enjoyable.
