 Tasted by hackey37 on 8/20/2014 & rated 91 points: The wine is a dark garnet color and is clear and translucent. The smells are cherry, damp forest floor; black currant, black olive, and strawberry with floral scents. The tastes are cherry, cedar, olive, stone, herbs, and dry leaves. The acidity is zingy while the tannins like course, furry velvet. The finish is long and seems a little woody. (392 views)

 Tasted by MarkMich on 1/1/2013 & rated 91 points: Drank New Years Eve with Kevin & Jim. Very nice and a great QPR. Will get more. (682 views)
 Tasted by icrworldnu on 10/20/2012 & rated 92 points: Beautiful berry, cherry, with only slight hints of strawberry. Beautifully light, but with good carry. Wonderfully done. (793 views)
 Tasted by hackey37 on 10/19/2012 & rated 90 points: This wine is a clean and clear, translucent garnet color in the glass. The aroma is a little tight for the varietal and reminds me of strawberry, cranberry, and a faint smell of bret. The tastes are sour cherry, subtle indian spice, cranberry, and rose. The tannins are very fine but with firm grip and seem derived from fruit since they are prominent at the front of the mouth. The acidity is bright and the finish is long. This wine is elegant and structured and might benefit from a little more aging. (831 views)

Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Burgundy

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.

# 2013 Vintage Notes:
* "2013 is a vintage that 20 years ago would have been a disaster." - Will Lyons
* "low yields and highly variable reds, much better whites." - Bill Nanson
* "Virtually all wines were chaptalised, with a bit of sugar added before fermentation to increase the final alcohol level." - Jancis Robinson

# 2014 Vintage Notes:
"We have not had such splendid harvest weather for many years. This will ensure high quality (fragrant, classy and succulent are words already being used) across the board, up and down the hierarchy and well as consistently from south to north geographically apart from those vineyards ravaged by the hail at the end of June." - Clive Coates
