    The Cabal Vineyard bottling from Tongue in Groove continues to go from strength to strength. A few years back it was clear to see the potential from this site with its purity of fruit, exotic spice and suave mouth feel. Now it seems winemaker Lynette Hudson is teasing even more depth, structure and nuance out of the wine. This is the most complex and compelling showing yet. A darker fruited, more concentrated wine this year with forest berries, ripe plum, mole, and clove. Lovely weight on the palate with fine silky texture from the clay rich soils. So layered and luscious finishing with floral tones and a juicy mouthwatering lift. There is so much "pinosity" crammed into this bottle. Drinking beautifully now but sure to delight for another 5-8 years. K&L Staff Favorite.

    When I taste a wine like this, all I think is that I have the best job in the world. This Pinot is bright, lifted, minerally and just so incredibly delicious. The fruit shines, though it's not so much rich as it is as driven. This wine is light bodied, but manages to pack so much punch and flavor that every time I take a sip I want to give the winemaker a big hug for what a natural genius they are. This one sold fast last vintage and I am now reminded why. The package may be funky, but don't let that fool you, as the wine inside is sophisticated and serious. I expect this vintage to go as fast as the last, for good reason. It really is just that incredible.
    Top Value!

    Another great vintage from Tongue In Groove's Cabal Vineyard bottling of Pinot Noir. This is a brooding and savory Pinot with luscious dark fruit and earthy clay notes. Already developing beautifully, this wine has fine boned but firm tannin, good acidity cut, and an excellent medium weight on the palate. It shows an intriguing savory olive quality that marries seamlessly with the black plum and cherry notes. Well-integrated and showing perfectly at the moment!
