I'm a notorious self-editor, so I'm going to give you the direct transcribing of my handwritten notes: "Oooooh yeah! Cool aromatics and cool everything! Gobs of berries and savory yum yums -- super silky & round w/juiciness & delicacy -- pound-able!"
A seriously impressive quartet of vineyards -- Breaker, Shea, Sequitur, Bednarik -- forms this tremendous value. We're gaga for the 2017 edition of Old Eight Cut, the strongest showing yet for this blend. You will not find a better $30 Pinot from our fair state. - Marcus
