October 25, 2013 - This was excellent, I liked it much better than a 2010 Drouhin Vosne Romanee opened the night before.
I expected something close to Seasmoke considering the winemaker is the same but stylistically this was very different - elegant, seamless, a little sweetness on the back end, not hot or alcoholic but very balanced iwth some delicious fruit. A very nice surprise

August 23, 2013 - Quick taste from our friends at hitimes. Leaning towards a more fruit forward style of dark berry and cherry with some vanilla notes but the wine does not cross the line for me. I really enjoyed it.

March 31, 2013 - Disappointed. Expected more from Sea Smoke's former winemaker. Savory, but hard to find any pinosity. OK, but won't buy again.
