July 20, 2014 - Very deep garnet. Big pinot. Lots of rather dark berry fruit. Some smoke, some redcurrant. Bit forceful and monolithic but in a surprisingly enjoyable way. Tannins nice and smooth, acidity fairly low but sufficient. Didn't change much. Can't see this fading away any time soon.

January 1, 2014 - I have always loved this wine and think it continues to show well and drink well. Not typical pinot noir (no sourness to it), fruity and dark.

October 26, 2013 - Muted fruit, cherry & plum if you really work at it. Some nice earthiness, and a pleasant acid on the finish, but no real structure and without a fruitiness to start just come across as meh.

June 30, 2013 - Is this pinot? The wine is Syrah and Granache like. I could have mistaken this for a rhone. It has good fruit but not what I look for in a pinot. Cherry, cola, spice. Decent finish.

May 27, 2013 - - Brick color with medium forming legs. It's balanced with a medium/full body. Smooth texture with a medium finish.
