    March 19, 2016 - Good drinking now. Wouldn't hold too long, maybe two years max. Reidel Pinot glasses with baked coho salmon and dill sauce.

    October 19, 2015 - A good California pinot, not too oaky or extracted with reasonable acidity. Pleasant cinnamon, spices, pine, develops well in the glass. Shows restraint and the alcohol is not intrusive.

    October 4, 2015 - An outstanding bottle! This is really singing now. It has gained weight, and the acidity is perfectly balanced against the richness of the fruit.

    March 22, 2015 - Very cloudy in appearance. Thought the cloudiness was from jostling it bringing it up from the cellar, but the cloudiness persisted the next day. Muted fruit and acidity seemed lacking. I know it sounds like pretty harsh criticism but still a pleasant PN. My last bottle. Given my previous bottles I will likely buy again.

    September 30, 2014 - Light color, almost cloudy. Bright cherry nose, nice and balanced acidity. Excellent on the palate, with very long length. Finish lingers for minutes. Really nice PN. I am impressed and really enjoyed it.
