2009 Fess Parker Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard Santa Barbara County

Too bad to hear, Ed. I've liked Fess Parker Pinots in the past (only had a few) and really enjoyed a visit my wife and I made back in 2009.

Just curious: the WS scoring scale says 80-84 points is a, "good...well-made wine." Your TN sounds more like a 60 or something. Thoughts? Was there some underlying saving grace in the wine?

Seldom ever rated a wine in teh 60's except Bully Hill. This wine was far below what I thought was FP quaility standards and my expectations.

Guess I was gracious. I really hated it. Wine was very weak, felt watered down, and was not of a good quality. I'll keep the score, but it was probably in the high 70's to be factual.

Changed to a 79
