The Inman fruit is sourced from the RRV. Polished nose of wild strawberries, brite cherry, spices and some floral notes. All hit the palate and after a silky entry, medium center the finish is a solid 4 lapper. The Turner is sourced from Sta. Rita Hills fruit and is more muscular. Also showing cherries, spice, and flowers it too finishes out a solid 4 lapper. Both wines were made by Brian Loring and the RRV Inman coming in at 13.9% alc and the Turner a solid 15% alc. Rate both wines a 90/90 and both were at 45 on issue. WW

The Carr Pinot Gris I like is from Turner Vineyard grapes.

Opened another of these for lunch yesterday. Very polished and focused pinot. Nice mnose and entry. Seems to be dead OTTOIG. Will polish off my remaining bottles in the 1-2. No change in scoring. 15.9% alc. WW
