    June 1, 2016 - In P'town with the MIT crew, Suzanne brought this one, my first experience with this vintner. PnP, drank over 30 minutes

    Medium ruby, a little cloudy. Red fruits, plums, dark cherry. A little dense for my palate, especially for Pinot, no real secondary characteristics. May settle and evolve in time.

    December 26, 2015 - Absolutely stunning. Smooth, complex, delightful. The heat that an earlier reviewer noted is gone now.

    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.
