    June 25, 2016 - Was good, but not as good as we thought it would get. Very subtle flavors of cherry and not as vibrant as we like

    March 19, 2016 - A nice subtlety of fruit and spice at the beginning, taking on a bit of tart cherry after dinner (not what I'd prefer).

    May 20, 2015 - Couldn't lay off this before going back for another bottle. The nose, however while still full of flowers has a far more pronounced red fruit thing going on. Still love the weight on the palate and it is just a pleasure to drink. Go for it! Drink 'em won't regret it.

    May 5, 2015 - Wow - really popped. Certainly elegant, but not overly austere as many Faillas can be. Distinctive, really evoking the vineyard source. Exemplar of well-made California Pinot. Good now (May '15), maybe another two years until it shifts to next stage of maturity.
