    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.

    October 18, 2013 - The nose was subdued -- may develop further given more time. Classic, delicious RRV on the palate, and ready for consumption. 88-89

    September 3, 2013 - Medium purple color, with lifting aromas of rose petals, black cherries, raspberries, and wet forest. The palate shows nice flavors of black cherries and strawberries with light spice and cola notes. Finishes with an attractive crispness and light tannins.
