    June 7, 2017 - Double decanted and slow ox for 2 hrs. Very pleasant, fresh aromatics at open. Needed four hours and only got slightly showy on the taste at that point. Pretty all around and holding up well but didn't get me where I was expecting to go. Perhaps a victim of hype machine?

    April 29, 2017 - PnP, but could benefit from a short decant. Had alongside the 2009 Moonshine Ranch and everyone liked the Blue Slide better. The nose yielded some light earth and a distinctive whiff of funk - which blew off quickly. The palate served up a basket of red and dark red fruits, a good dose of spice, and perfect acidity to achieve balance. What was missing (thankfully) was the cola element, which we are growing tired of. Should hold for a good couple of years.

    January 14, 2017 - Double decanted & SO'd for a few hrs, med. ruby, nose & taste of fine Burgundy, mod. tannins, med/long finish; delicious, drink or hold.

    January 11, 2017 - Medium deep scarlet blue.
    Bright dried cherry cola flavors. Served on the cooler side this is a delicious Pinot if perhaps slightly lacking that extra verve of some other years of BSR. Holding up fine. No reason to rush

    May 8, 2016 - Ranks up there with the best Pinots I have had. Dark cherry, pomegranate, clove, and saline notes. Really lovely.
