    August 8, 2016 - Goodness! Do I love Sandler. I was blown away by the limpid, beautiful and pure 2014. Now I am well into the 2011 and it is also outstanding. It it light bodied like the '14, but the red fruit perception is a little darker, and the color is as well. Add some pretty spice, too! Like the other, the wine begs to be drunk, and that I did, down to the last drop.

    May 3, 2015 - Ed Kurtzman Dinner (Luciana's, Dana Point, CA): Raspberry aromas and palate. The oak is still making itself known. Strawberry palate big spicy ending. This just nudges the 2010 and 2012 for my favorite. I'm a sucker for the best Pinot in California history, 2011.

    May 2, 2015 - Ed Kurtzman Comes To Dinner (2015) (Luiciana's In Dana Point): Tasted next to the 10 and 12, FWIW. Once again, when I sit down in any setting, and often times the varietal doesn't matter in this instance, I always land on the 11 as being a superior vintage. I know people put it down, but I continue to find great wines coming out of this year. Here with Ed's 11, it has a juicy feel, funk and red raspberry (not dark raspberry like the 10). Solid acidity too. With air, this picks up a floral quality and everything knitted up well as we rolled into the dinner. Terrific.
