Tasting Note: This is not vintage dated but I was told that the bottle that I reviewed was from 2010; 215 cases produced...Philosophical issues aside, this is nothing if not original with its mix of wines from California and Burgundy. And not surprisingly, the wine reflects its hybrid roots as the nose is largely but not completely California in style as there is some underlying earthiness. There is a round and supple mouth feel to the medium-bodied flavors that possess good detail and vibrancy but also a lush mid-palate thanks to the abundant presence of mouth coating dry extract. The lingering finish is firm but not austere with good balance and fine length. Just as the indicated proportions would suggest this is more US pinot in style than Burgundian and overall this is a fascinating effort. Drink: 2015+. Score - 89.
