Best bottle of 3. Sour strawberry, but in a good way. Didn't last long among four of us.

In a great drinking window. Maybe at its peak. Wish I had more. The fruit is balanced by smooth tannins. So delicious.

This wine brought a smile to my face. Elegant red fruit with a hint of green that adds depth and complexity. It's been a while since a wine captivated me as this did.

If anything, this has improved since the last time I tried it. Hint of green apple, rich and nice acid without showing it. Very good

Very young. It was best 2 hours after opening. Lots of acidity, lemon, minerality. Let this rest.

Refreshing, uncomplicated but still interesting. Like a light Pinot. We slurped it down at lunch. Fun to drink.

Showing some mature notes. But years left on this. A bit hollow on the mid-palate, but we polished off the bottle with dinner. Nice. 12.5 abv

Full-bodied and full of fruit. Dark in the glass. 10 years old? Ok. Easy drinking, but still on the big side of Pinot. Not particularly complex or layered, but we liked it fine with great ECB burgers.

Deep violet color. No real bricking. Still lots of fruit, but with rich, mature Cab notes. This has lots of life left. Wish I had more bottles. A steal from Winebid.

Wow. Double wow. Serious streak of acidity runs through this. Some tropical fruit, but not oaky or sweet. My wife guessed Rhone variety. I see that. Great with a bean salad and beets.

Pop and pour. No heaviness or OTT flavors. Very well balanced. Red/blue fruit. I might have been hard pressed to peg this as CA Syrah. Grenache is what I kept thinking. Delicious.

I'm happy Levenberg and Gary York won't drink this, because they are pig-headed.

Good acidity and stone fruit. Nicely balanced. If I'm going to drink Chardonnay, I want it like this. No hints of oak or tropical fruits. Clean. I only wish more CA chard were made in this style.

The plastic/wax capsules, however, pretty though they are, are also a pain.
