    January 26, 2015 - I agree this bottle is in a beautiful spot - by far the best of the 6 we had. Tastes like it was twice the cost - beautiful red fruits, smooth silky tanins, relatively long finish.

    November 15, 2014 - Wow. A year after my previous bottle, this 2010 Carneros has rocketed up 5 points in my estimation. Light bodied, bright ruby, bountiful nose filled with flowers and fruits. The palate is now luscious, balancing appealing acidity with satisfying smoothness; blueberries, dark cherries, and cranberries mellow into a suave finish. As always, Chad is rad.

    June 7, 2014 - Nice balance and smooth taste. A bit of acidity on the front and sour cherries and very light raspberries. Nice soft tannic finish.

    April 20, 2014 - This bottle seemed to have a bit of VA that I downgraded it for. It tasted bright and had a nice tart cherry. Finish was light and slight tea tannin -87 Won't put it in the CT system this time

    January 26, 2014 - Won't add another rating at this point so I don't bias the CT rating too much. Consistent with my past ratings. I like this pinot; give it an hour to open up and you will enjoy it more
