April 30, 2016 - Decanted and drank over three hours. Brooding dark color in the glass. Black cherry, vanilla, sweet tannins, all seamlessly integrated.

April 5, 2015 - Pinot noir extravaganza (Stockholm, Sweden): From afar: Neither a Bgn nor a PN. Brought this btl as I was afraid that too many watery, ballerina, Project Runway wines would make me crave for a real wine. And THIS, ladies and gentlemen, is a real wine!
Dark-fruited with slight vegetal/star-fruit CF-character. It is SA-tannic with distinct aromas from inside of a fabric store, of CF and a generous climate.
This is a love-affair in a bottle.

March 22, 2015 - If you like CF, you'll LOVE this wine! Superbly concentrated with youthful layers of fruit and very fine vegetal expressions. This is becoming a really fine and very grape-typical wine of distinction.
9 btls to go, next one in 2016.
Unfortunately, only decanted for sediment at home and then immediately brought to the restaurant.
Tannins M+, acids M++, M+ body.
Rich aroma palette dominated by peeman, star fruit and paprika. Long, elevated, concentrated, typical for the grape and absolutely, positively promising great things for the future. I really love this wine, wife prefers other expressions of this grape, as in Le Macchiole's Paleo and other Washingtonians.
Wife: slightly sweet for her taste and thought it more towards CdP in expression: 90p.
At over performing Italian restaurant: Bisi-Basi in Maita, Yokohama.
