    April 20, 2014 - A good structured cool climate CA Pinot Noir. Not a CA fruit bomb sipping wine. The pinot you will like when you grow up.

    March 18, 2014 - PnP. Medium light red; lovely red fruits on the nose (raspberry, strawberry). Medium weight on the palate with just enough "crunchiness" to make this a delightful drink.

    February 22, 2014 - Drank this over 2 nights, with no real change. A clear-ish color. Some sweet cherry on pop n pour. Some bitterness and tannins. Five hours after opening, the bitterness disappeared. I was looking forward to drinking this bottle, which was gifted to me by a friend. It ain't no Sojourn.

    August 10, 2013 - I don't understand where all of the tart comments are coming from. For me, this was a bottle with moderate acidity. Good concentration, nice red fruit and forest floor flavors on the palate. Solid pinot, squarely in the balanced CA camp in terms of flavor and weight. Not worth what I paid for it, but a nice wine overall.
