December 25, 2015 - Pnp. Slight funk in the nose. Some nice red fruit but the acidity is fairly pronounced. A bit one dimensional and really disappointing considering the msrp. A pass at mid 30's

October 23, 2015 - Apparently peaking now, as acidity is starting to drop off, still shows deep color, rich aromas and palate-coating flavors of wild cherry, strawberry and cola notes, with a lingering and tasty finish. Unfortunately, last bottle of the vintage, which we loved. (NOTE: This particular bottle came from a supermarket, which others we had did not, so there might be accelerated aging due to storage issues while in market)

May 27, 2015 - Great wine. Very good on day 1 - lots of red fruit on the palace, nose of cherry and strawberry. Still good on days 2 and 3 (air pumped out, in the fridge). Easy to drink yet complicated.

February 13, 2015 - Classic Sta Rita Hills from a once-again-great winemaking team. Ruby-garnet in glass, translucent but rich in aromas of Bing cherry and spice that promise the complexity to follow. Palate shows classic cool-climate Pinot Noir notes of wild cherry, berry and cardamom, followed by some Asian spice and mineral-laced acidity that balance the tasty fruit. Still a baby, should age mid-term very well. Loved the long finish, and so did the dinner party.....recommend a decant before serving.
