April 23, 2017 - Followed over 5hrs, no decant. This was plump and forward upon opening, with a clean red cherry character. Given some air, it deepened some. nose was mostly earth notes, with cred and blue fruits on the palate. Stem inclusion shows with time. Finish was repeating and moderately long. Softer and more accessible than expected, and at the same time less complex. Last sip was the best, however. 92-93+

January 27, 2017 - Nice pinot. Started off with dominant fruit notes, but after it opened a bit, this one offered a nice integrated mix of dark red and black berries, earth and a subtle hint of sultry spice. Had a couple small glasses left to sample the next day, and this mostly showed the fruit again. Maybe this one will improve, maybe not, but no regrets opening it now.

November 30, 2016 - Wow! I just love the fruit in this wine. It reminds me of picking ripe berries in the wild. Exciting and delicious! Has good depth and richness and also interesting high-pitched notes.
Beyond the fruit, I don't taste anything else right now. But the fruit is so complex that it doesn't matter.1 person found this helpful Comment

August 24, 2016 - 12.5% abv. Medium-dark ruby, moderate aromatics. Palate more evocative of earth, minerality and spice than Pinot fruit. Light on its feet, yet good depth and length. I need to try this again in 3-5 years.
