    March 13, 2015 - Time has tamed the savage beast in this bottle that I first sampled a year and a half ago. Extremely enjoyable. Intense cherry blast followed by a long and satisfying finish. Wish I had purchased more.

    June 21, 2014 - 1 hour decant. Some heat and average finish. This will last another 2-3 years. Not sure how WA gave this a 95.

    December 23, 2012 - Very good from the outset - cherry jam. Developed to have a little too much perfume, but good structure. Drank too early but tasty.

    December 2, 2012 - This is really delicious. Heavy weight for a Pinot Noir. Very rich. Very smooth. Dark red cherry color and flavor prevails with more subtle herbs and spices in background. WA rating of 95 may be deserved. I took it down a couple points because it was almost too rich and dense to drink more than one glass a day. While this is good, I prefer DuMol Pinot Noir.

    November 22, 2012 - This was a great wine that was enjoyed with thanksgiving dinner and I would highly recommend this wine both with a meal or also as a cocktail.
