September 17, 2014 - Solid fruit and good acidity. Tart cherry balanced by some earthiness. I think it is just inside of its drinking window. If I had more I would hold for another year.

September 4, 2014 - A little age has served this wine well. Best showing of my three bottles. Vibrant and bursting with flavor. Good acidity, earthiness and a tart factor. Just wonderfully expressive and balanced.

August 7, 2014 - Crimson in color. 14.5% ABV. Red fruits, cloves and minerals on the nose. Perfectly balanced and elegant with just the right amount of acidity. Cherries and cinnamon are prominent on the palate with a bit of cola and earth as well. Great finish. Still young and evolving with tons of potential. Drink over the next 3-5 years.

April 25, 2014 - Tasty ripe red cherry, floral, and nutmeg notes on the nose and silky palate with long finish.

February 21, 2014 - A big, brawny pinot that beats you over the head with fruit and ripeness. There's a thickness and richness to the mouthfeel that's like a really plush towel. A bit of cola on the palate signifies RRV.
