    August 3, 2014 - Little to add to previous notes. Served at cellar temperature to guests with hors d'oeuvres on the terrace. Everyone loved it.

    August 3, 2014 - A nose of cherries and spice, medium garnet in color. A medium to full bodied Pinot, with black cherry, blackberry, good acidity and mouth feel, a easy drinker, drink now.

    July 27, 2014 - Consistent with the first few bottles I've tasted, this wine was also dark ruby in color and revealed blackberry, cherry and smoke on the nose. The mouth feel brought dark red fruits and spices. The finish was bright and medium in length.

    This was a very enjoyable bottle of wine. At $28US, I wish it cost less so I could enjoy it more often. It paired wonderfully with my GF and my dinner of curried chicken thighs, brown rice and steamed vegetables.

    May 13, 2014 - Translucent dark garnet. Nose of black cherry, cola, cinnamon, and smoke. Ripe, juicy, spicy palate of darker-than-typical-Morgan Pinot fruit. Superb length. Delicious, focused acidity. Sweet tannins. Silky texture. Beguiling complexity. This wine is finally showing its potential.
