"A special bottling from what’s quickly turning out to be a special site just east of Pismo Beach on California’s central coast. This is the second Pinot Noir I’ve tasted from the site, and it’s an amazing example of what’s possible when great fruit meets a great winemaker. Christian Roguenant’s decades of experience in the region shine brightly here, with just a kiss of oak joining cherry, strawberry, dry earth minerality and lively spice in a medium bodied, full flavored style. Singing acidity pushes the flavors through a bursting finish that hangs pleasantly in the mouth and invites you back again and again. A fine accompaniment for roast fowl or seafood, and it’s more than up to cutting through rich sauces. Bravo! -Rich Cook"

"Elegantly floral aromas of violet and rose petal meet with candied raspberry on the nose of this bottling from a vineyard very close to Pismo Beach. The palate is brisk, with sharp raspberry and more flower-petal elegance, woven together by a mineral tone of crushed gravel. -MK"
