    May 9, 2016 - Outstanding wine. Very plum-like with deep garnet color. After about an hour of decanting it was really good stuff. Would love to have another 12 bottles. Really, really good Pinot.

    March 14, 2016 - Clear and darker red
    Intense and full nose. Really deep but not overpowered cherries and raspberries. Some sweetness from cinnamon and clove. Very ripe and nice polished tannins. Drinking well now.

  • yonster24 Does not like this wine:

    February 28, 2016 - While the cork nor bottle showed any signs of heat damage, I refuse to believe this bottle was in good condition. Nose of stewed fruit, way over ripe cherry and definitely some prune. Med bodied on the palate, with earth, ripe cherry and the prune coming through. med+ finish with acidity coming through. But something about this bottle feels off. Not enjoyable at all.

    February 27, 2016 - Excellent and in its prime drinking window. Dark and extracted, without an overbearing focus on cherry flavors.

    February 27, 2016 - Popped and poured, drank over several hours. Still plenty of fruit here but very fine integrated tannins, has mellowed a lot in its bottle journey. Drink now, at its peak now!
