Bien Nacido fruit? Columbia Valley Riesling? Yes, I’m interested. Hope to hear more about these wines including how the '07 Riesling is holding out, seven years from vintage.

I’m curious about the Riesling as well.
The price is a little high to take a flyer on a winery I have never heard of, any community notes on any of these?

Everyone loves reviews…right?

So…from the Wine Enthusiast, 91 points on the pinot noir:

A lovely Pinot Noir, silky and dry, with crisp flavors of raspberries, cherries, Dr. Pepper cola, dusty Indian spices and smoky sandalwood. Lots of crunchy acidity gives it a citrusy bite. Now–2014.

Daryl Groom is making these wines from Livermore Valley vineyards mostly and the wine is no doubt big in every way—15.6% alcohol with big tannins and big black, spicy fruit flavors hiding in there at first. It definitely needs time to open. And a giant, slathered-in-sauce kind of steak or other red meat.

The remaining pinot noir looks to have been sold to Cameron Hughes, and he just released it as Lot 440 for $17.
