    May 20, 2016 - Beat a Kosta Brown in head to head tasting.

    November 8, 2015 - The aromatics were a little subdued on the pull of the cork, but hinted at red fruits like strawberry jam and red raspberry with a hint of cinnamon. It's much darker than expected. The first small glass immediately greeted me with tart red fruits and cinnamon that coated my entire mouth, plus a green element that developed into a bay leaf / sage flavor over a couple hours. A hint of cola on the finish. Stayed similar the next day.

    May 27, 2015 - Light crimson in color. 14.5% ABV. Ripe red fruits and baking spices on the nose. Big, rich, fruit forward Pinot Noir. Flavors of brown sugar, black cherry, cola, cranberry and nutmeg. Tons of fruit left on a very long finish. Unabashedly New World in style. Drink over the next 2-3 years.

    December 27, 2014 - Very nice! Much better than our last bottle, which must have gone a bit sideways. Drink next bottle any time; doubt there's any evolution left.

    November 29, 2014 - Sweet cherries and currants, backed by a little spicy oak, this wine is a long way from peaking.
