December 9, 2016 - Cant believe I found this for less than $25. Fantastic, well made, pinot with plenty of life left.

November 18, 2016 - Over two years since I last opened a bottle. Red Fruit and herbs on the nose, the palate was red berries, red plums with hints of herbs and cinnamon. The finish was moderate to long and smooth.

February 21, 2016 - Slow ox for 3 hours. Then 2 hours in the decanter. Was really happy with this. Color shows a bit of bricking. Nose has some real depth to it, with some herbal notes and lavender. Palate was very nice and both fruit and secondary flavors abounded. Finish left a little to be desired - not that it was short, just a bit harsh.
Glad to see how this did with some cellar time. And I think it has the stuffing to do just fine with another few years laying down.
