    December 30, 2013 - Probably one of best Pinots I've ever had. Wonderful nose. Great depth and fabulous finish. Wish I had more. Drinking very well.

    December 28, 2013 - hard to drink this right after the kosta browne 2009 sonoma coast but it more than held its own. it needs more time to open than the kosta. beautiful cherry and cola notes with nice acidity. needed more time to open but then we moved onto the bordeauex for our main course. seems like it could age another 2 years and be fine - has a bit more heft and weight and complexity than the kosta.

    September 8, 2013 - Stills needs some time to open, and I don't think we gave it enough time (although we did run it through a vinturi). Subtle but beautiful nose of sassafras and some cherries. The root beer / sassafras notes are also present on the front palate. The finish has moderate tannins and a some bitterness that I didn't mind, but some others thought detracted from the wine.
